Kristallnacht… Night of the Broken Glass


Kristallnacht – A Documentary Part 1 of 5


Here is good documentary from the History Channel on Reichskristallnacht, the night of broken glass. On November 9–10 November 1938, all across Germany Jewish businesses were ransacked, synagogues burned down, Jews sent to concentration camps and murdered. It was the first big anti-Semitic event in Germany before the war started. Here the events leading up to it are chroncled as well. The most hard-hitting quote is when it is said that this marked the end of German Jewry. Very depressing…

Germany Remembers Kristallnacht Pogrom: 75th anniversary of watershed Nazi anti-Semitic riots

It was 75 years ago that Germany’s Nazi Party stepped up its campaign of persecution against Jews over two days of terror known as Kristallnacht, or ‘The Night of Broken Glass’.

Kristallnacht 75th Anniversary Marked “The Night Of Broken Glass”!!

It was 75 years ago that Germany’s Nazi Party stepped up its campaign of persecution against Jews over two days of terror known as Kristallnacht, or ‘The Night of Broken Glass’. It was a program (a series of coordinated attacks) against Jews throughout Nazi Germany and parts of Austria on 9–10 Nov 1938, carried out by SA paramilitary forces and non-Jewish civilians. German authorities looked on without intervening. The name Kristallnacht comes from the shards of broken glass that littered the streets after Jewish-owned stores, buildings, and synagogues had their windows smashed. At least 91 Jews were killed in the attacks, and 30,000 were arrested and incarcerated in concentration camps. Jewish homes, hospitals, and schools were ransacked, as the attackers demolished buildings with sledgehammers. Over 1,000 synagogues were burned (95 in Vienna alone) and over 7,000 Jewish businesses destroyed or damaged. Martin Gilbert writes that no event in the history of German Jews between 1933 and 1945 was so widely reported as it was happening, and the accounts from the foreign journalists working in Germany sent shock waves around the world. The Times wrote at the time: “No foreign propagandist bent upon blackening Germany before the world could outdo the tale of burnings and beatings, of blackguardly assaults on defenseless and innocent people, which disgraced that country yesterday.” The pretext for the attacks was the assassination of the German diplomat Ernst vom Rath by Herschel Grynszpan, a German-born Polish Jew resident in Paris. Kristallnacht was followed by additional economic and political persecution of Jews, and is viewed by historians as part of Nazi Germany’s broader racial policy, and the beginning of the Final Solution and The Holocaust. The violence was officially called to a stop by Goebbels on Nov 11, but violence continued against the Jews in the concentration camps despite orders requesting “special treatment” to ensure that this did not happen. On Nov 23, the News Chronicle of London published an article on an incident which took place at the concentration camp of Sachsenhausen. Sixty-two Jews suffered punishment so severe that the police, “unable to bear their cries, turned their backs”. They were beaten until they fell and, when they fell, they were further beaten. At the end of it, “twelve of the sixty-two were dead, their skulls smashed. The others were all unconscious. The eyes of some had been knocked out, their faces flattened and shapeless” The 30,000 Jewish men who had been imprisoned during Kristallnacht were released over the next three months but, by then, more than 2,000 had died. Hermann Göring met with other members of the Nazi leadership on 12 November to plan the next steps after the riot, setting the stage for formal government action. In the transcript of the meeting, Göring said, ‘I have received a letter written on the Führer’s orders requesting that the Jewish question be now, once and for all, coordinated and solved one way or another.. I should not want to leave any doubt, gentlemen, as to the aim of today’s meeting. We have not come together merely to talk again, but to make decisions, and I implore competent agencies to take all measures for the elimination of the Jew from the German economy, and to submit them to me.’ In an article released for publication on the evening of Nov 11, Goebbels ascribed the events of Kristallnacht to the “healthy instincts” of the German people. He went on to explain: “The German people are anti-Semitic. It has no desire to have its rights restricted or to be provoked in the future by parasites of the Jewish race.” While Nov 1938 predated overt articulation of “the Final Solution” it foreshadowed the genocide to come. Around the time of Kristallnacht, the SS newspaper Das Schwarze Korps’ called for a “destruction by swords and flames.” At a conference on the day after the pogrom, Hermann Göring said: “The Jewish problem will reach its solution if, in any time soon, we will be drawn into war beyond our border then it is obvious that we will have to manage a final account with the Jews.”

Sidney Reilly

From Wikipedia
Sidney George Reilly (c. 1870 – c. 1880 – c. 1925), commonly known as the so-called “Ace of Spies”, was a secret agent of theBritish Secret Service Bureau, the precursor to the modern British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6/SIS).[1] He is alleged to have spied for at least four different powers.[2] ++++++

From Wikipedia,
Anno Mundi (Latin for “in the year of the world”; Hebrew: לבריאת העולם, “from the creation of the world”), abbreviated as AM or A.M., orYear After Creation,[1] is a calendar era based on the biblical accounts of the creation of the world and subsequent history. While numerous efforts have been made to determine the biblical date of Creation, yielding varying results, two in particular have establishedepochs for significant calendars, including one that is still in use today.
The Hebrew calendar epoch is based on twelfth-century Rabbinic estimates for the year of creation which are calculated from data obtained in the Hebrew Masoretic text.[2] This calendar is used within Jewish communities for religious and other purposes. The calendar’sepoch, corresponding to the calculated date of the world’s creation, is equivalent to sunset on the Julian proleptic calendar date 6 October 3761 BC.[3] (In the Hebrew calendar, the day begins at sunset.) The new year begins at Rosh Hashanah (roughly in September); year AM 5776 began at sunset on 13 September 2015 (Gregorian)

Montefiore Synagogue Ramsgate Open Day 2007

Moses Montefiore (1784-1885) was a towering figure of Victorian England, renowned locally, nationally and internationally. The grandson of wealthy Sephardi London merchants originally from Livorno in Italy he retired from the Stock Exchange a rich man to devote his life to philanthropy. He gave generously locally: his mayoral gold chain is still worn by Ramsgate mayors. Nationally he worked for removal of disabilities for all dissenters; he helped establish the non-denominational University College London. Internationally he most famously fought for and helped financially his co-religionists abroad in times of persecution and established a new suburb and industries for impoverished Jews of Jerusalem and of the Holy Land.

He first came to Ramsgate in 1812 on his honeymoon with his wife Judith Cohen, sister-in-law to Nathan Rothschild. After his first visit to Jerusalem he bought, in 1831, East Cliff Lodge with its grounds, now George VI Park. The pious and observant Montefiores immediately expressed their intention to build a synagogue as a private `chapel’ on their estate. David Mocatta, a cousin, was hired to design it.He was the first Anglo-Jewish architect, a pupil of Sir John Soane and architect for railway stations on the Brighton Line. Mocatta estimated the cost at between £1500 and £1600 exclusive of the interior which was to cost £300 and £400. The foundation stone was laid on the New Moon of Tammuz (Leo) 5691 anno mundi (1) or 9th. August 1831 in the presence of large numbers of the family; terra santa[sic](2) was placed where the Ark with its scrolls would eventually stand. 
It was on Sunday the 16th. June 1833 that the dedication of the synagogue took place.
The Chief Rabbis of both the Sephardi and Ashkenazi communities were present, leading a large and distinguished congregation from all over the United Kingdom.
`The simple building is based on a rectangular plan with canted corners plus a semicircular apse at the back to accommodate the Ark. It has whitewashed stucco walls and a lead roof. The clock on the façade, an unusual feature of synagogues (the most famous being that on Prague’s baroque Jewish Town Hall) is inscribed in English with the motto TIME FLIES. VIRTUE ALONE REMAINS. The chiming clock is the only example in an English Synagogue.'(3) 

This clock has marked the time for numerous Ramsgatonians, speeding many a schoolboy late for school. Sir Moses Montefiore’s arms, by the side of the entrance, are from the now demolished Judith, Lady Montefiore College; they were placed there after 1960.

`The interior: Semicircular stone steps (at north) lead to a tiny vestibule with a marble washstand. The interior of the small prayer hall was originally dimly lit from above by an octagonal dome and lantern of clear and red glass, a feature typical of the Regency, and by a tiny window over the Ark now filled with a stained glass Decalogue. Only later were windows introduced at gallery level. The classicism of the tapering Ark is modified by the lotus-bud capitals, which give it a slightly Egyptian feel.
Other alterations to the interior have somewhat compromised the restrained neoclassicism: the cream, pink and grey granite and marble lining the walls (in 1912), replacement and rearrangement of furniture (by oak in 1933; the Reader’s desk is now in the centre) and the introduction of iron gallery supports and stained glass (also 1933). The gallery faces the Ark along the west wall and has a traditional high latticework mehitsah (*). In 1933 the original timber Royal Family prayer board was replaced. It can now be seen at Bristol Synagogue’ (4)
The present Prayer for the Royal Family is for King George V and Queen Mary.
In the lobby there is a memorial to a member of the family who was killed on active service at Gallipoli during World War I.

The synagogue is lit by candles in their original brass chandeliers, as at its parent synagogue Bevis Marks in London. Sir Moses’ own seat by the Ark is still to be seen as is that of Lady 
Montefiore’s in the women’s gallery (no.3).

The Montefiores travelled widely and visited the Holy Land seven times. The suburb built outside the old walls of Jerusalem, `Yemin Moshe’ (the Right Hand of Moses in honour of Sir Moses) had a distinctly English flavour, and one might say even a very Ramsgate flavour: the ironwork is from G S Culver’s Ramsgate Metalwork factory and the windmill was based on the Hereson flour mill. It was built by Messrs. Holman, engineers and millwrights, of Canterbury.

25 Tishrei (1809) – Death of Rabbi Levi Yitzchok of Berditchev

Rabbi Levi Yitzchok of Berditchev

From Wikipedia
Levi Yitzchok of Berditchev (1740–1809 in Berdychiv[1]), also known as the Berdichever, was a Hasidic leader. He was the rabbi ofRyczywół, Żelechów, Pinsk and Berdychiv, for which he is best known. He was one of the main disciples of the Maggid of Mezritch, and of his disciple Rabbi Shmelke of Nikolsburg, whom he succeeded as rabbi of Ryczywół.[2]
Reb Levi Yitzchok was known as the “defense attorney” for the Jewish people, because it was believed that he could intercede on their behalf before God. Known for his compassion for every Jew, he was therefore one of the most beloved leaders of Eastern EuropeanJewry. He authored the Hasidic classic Kedushas Levi,[3] which is a commentary on many Jewish religious books and laws, and is arranged according to the weekly Torah portion. He is considered by some to be the founder of Hasidism in central Poland. Read More Button--orange

David Ben-Gurion (Hebrew: דָּוִד בֶּן-גּוּרִיּוֹן‎; pronounced [daˈvɪd ben gurˈjo:n] ([13px-Speaker_Icon.svg.png] listen), born David Grün; 16 October 1886, Płońsk – 1 December 1973, Tel Aviv, Israel) was the primary founder of the State of Israel and the first Prime Minister of Israel.
Ben-Gurion’s passion for Zionism, which began early in life, led him to become a major Zionist leader and Executive Head of theWorld Zionist Organization in 1946.[1] As head of the Jewish Agency from 1935, and later president of the Jewish Agency Executive, he was the de facto leader of the Jewish community in Palestine, and largely led its struggle for an independent Jewish state inMandatory Palestine. On 14 May 1948, he formally proclaimed the establishment of the State of Israel, and was the first to sign theIsraeli Declaration of Independence, which he had helped to write. Ben-Gurion led Israel during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, and united the various Jewish militias into the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Subsequently, he became known as “Israel’s founding father”.[2]

History of the Israeli Air Force

foto wikipedia ,, The Black Spitfire
From Wikipedia
The History of the Israel Air Force begins in May 1948, shortly after the formation of the State of Israel. Following Israel’s declaration of independence on May 14, its pre-state national institutions transformed into the agencies of a state, and on May 26, 1948, the Israeli Air Force was formed. Beginning with a small collection of light aircraft, the force soon transformed into a comprehensive fighting force.[1] It has since participated in several wars and numerous engagements, becoming what has been described as “The mightiest air force in the Middle East”
Preceded by the Sherut Avir, the air wing of the Haganah, the Israeli Air Force was officially formed on May 28, 1948, shortly after Israeldeclared statehood and found itself under immediate attack. At first, it was assembled from a hodge-podge collection of civilian aircraft commandeered or donated and converted to military use. A variety of obsolete and surplus ex-World War II combat aircraft were quickly sourced by various means – both legal and illegal – to supplement this fleet. The backbone of the IAF consisted of 25 Avia S-199s(purchased from Czechoslovakia, essentially Czechoslovak-built Messerschmitt Bf 109s) and 62 Supermarine Spitfire LF Mk IXEs ferried from Žatec base code-named “Zebra” where pilots also received preliminary flight training. Creativity and resourcefulness were the early foundations of Israeli military success in the air, rather than technology (which, at the inception of the IAF, was generally inferior to that used by Israel’s adversaries).

Jud Süß (Feuchtwanger)

Jud Süß ist ein 1925 erschienener Roman von Lion Feuchtwanger, der das Leben des historischen württembergischen Hofjuden Joseph Süß Oppenheimer als literarische Vorlage benutzt. Feuchtwanger, der Sohn eines jüdischen Fabrikanten, interessierte sich für die Fragen jüdischer Assimilation in Deutschland. Vor diesem Hintergrund dient ihm die Romanfigur dazu, die Abhängigkeit jüdischen Lebens von den Mächtigen und die in den 1920er Jahren zeittypischen judenfeindlichen Klischees zu thematisieren. foto Wikipedia Read More Button--orange

Jud Süß (1940)

Jud Süß ist ein antisemitischer, nationalsozialistischer Spielfilm von Veit Harlan aus dem Jahr 1940. Das von dernationalsozialistischen Regierung in Auftrag gegebene und als Propagandafilm konzipierte Werk ist an die historische Figur desJoseph Süß Oppenheimer (1698–1738) angelehnt, entspricht jedoch nicht den überlieferten Quellen, die darauf hindeuten, dass Süß Oppenheimer lediglich ein Sündenbock war, der für die Verfehlungen des Herzogs büßen musste.
Protagonist des Films ist Joseph Süß Oppenheimer, ein jüdischer Finanzbeamter, der wohl im Februar 1698 in Heidelberggeboren und am 4. Februar 1738 in Stuttgart hingerichtet wurde. Süß Oppenheimer wurde 1733 Geheimer Finanzrat unterHerzog Karl Alexander von Württemberg.

התחקיר המלא על נפילת מוצב החרמון במלחמת יום הכיפורים סרט תעודה חדש בהפקת מחלקת התעודה של הערוץ הראשון מביא את עדויות החיילים המפקדים, השבויים וחוקרי הקרב על נסיבות נפילתו של המוצב הרגיש והחיוני בתוך שעות ספורות לידי הקומנדו הסורי. כשנכבש מוצב החרמון מחדש בסוף מלחמת יוה”כ, קבע בני מסס, המא”גיסט מגולני, שהוא נלחם כי אמרו לו ש”החרמון הוא העיניים של המדינה”. גם היום, אחרי 40 שנה, מצטיירת בבסיס סיפורם של חיילי המוצב שרשרת אומללה של צירופי מקרים, יוהרה, שאננות ואדישות כמעט בכל הדרגים. כל אלו גרמו לכך שהמוצב החיוני ללחימת חיל האוויר והמודיעין, ובו אמצעים וטכנולוגיות מתקדמים וסודות מדינה, היה פרוץ, מוזנח ונטול הגנה כמעט לחלוטין. הבמאי יובל אור החליט לחקור ולהתחקות אחר הנסיבות שהביאו לנפילת המוצב במלחמה וזאת לאחר שנושא כאוב זה לא זכה מעולם לתחקיר וחשיפה ראויה ונדחק לשולי התודעה, אולי בגלל המערכת הצבאית שבחרה שלא לדון בפומבי בכישלון אלא רק בקרב הכיבוש מחדש. הסרט “הנפילה” מתרכז בפרק זמן קצר של כעשרים ואחת שעות, מהרגע בו פרצה המלחמה בעשרה לשתיים ביום שבת, ה 6 באוקטובר 1973 עד שהמוצב נפל בידי כוח של צנחנים וקומנדו סורי, באחת עשרה בבוקר של ה 7 באוקטובר, כאשר החיילים שנותרו בו נכנעו ונפלו בשבי. בתיאור האירועים לקחו חלק חיילי המוצב, שבויים לשעבר, אנשי מודיעין ולוחמי חטיבת גולני, מפקדיהם כמו גם קצינים בכירים שהמוצב היה תחת אחריותם בפיקוד הצפון. במאי: יובל אור מפיקה: ענת יהלום עורכת: כינרת חי גילאור עורך אחראי: איתי לנדסברג נבו

טס לשמיים: הטייס שחזר בתשובה בעקבות מלחמת יום כיפור – הטייס מבני-ברק!!!!!

רענן נאמן היה טייס ומפקד בחיל האוויר, והפך לחזון איש’ניק. מה גרם לו לחזור בתשובה, ולהתגורר בלב בני ברק? ואיך הגיב חברו הרמט”כל דני חלוץ הגיב לחזרה בתשובה? • צפו בכתבתה המרגשת של תמר איש שלום ערוץ 10 חרדים
רענן נאמן היה מפקד טייסת, עם עיטור מופת ממלחמת ההתשה • השבר של יום כיפור סימן עבורו שינוי כיוון בחיים, ומאז החליט לחזור בתשובה • והוא ממש לא היחיד • אוקטובר 73
מה לחרדי עטוי זקן ולבוש שחורים מבני ברק, ולמלחמת יום הכיפורים? מה לתלמיד ישיבה שלא שלח את בניו לצבא, ולטראומה של 1973? בגלגול קודם בחייו, לפני השטריימל והציציות, היה רענן נאמן סגן אלוף במילואים, ומפקד טייסת. היה לו גם חבר אחד מאותו מחזור שהתקדם מאוד בסולם הדרגות, והגיע הכי גבוה שאפשר.
עוד לפני מלחמת יום הכיפורים, קיבל רענן את עיטור המופת. במהלך טיסת קרב קשה במלחמת ההתשה, הוא איבד את כף ידו, ועם יד אחת מתפקדת, המשיך להילחם, בעודו מתחמק שוב ושוב מטילי האויב. “ידעתי שהמטרה זו אני”, הוא זוכר עד היום.
בסיום הקרב, אלוהים עדיין לא היה שם. אבל מהרגע שהגלגלים נגעו בקרקע, הוא החל לחלחל, באיטיות ובהתמדה. לאחר מלחמת יום הכיפורים, והשבר שבעקבותיה, צלל נאמן אל נבכי נשמתו, והחל לחזור בתשובה. לא רק עבורו מלחמת יום כיפור פתחה נתיב חדש למעלה; גם את אביה של תמר איש שלום, המלחמה קירבה אל הדת והמסורת.
40 שנה אחרי, רענן חזר לבסיס בחצור. הוא ראה את פאר הטכנולוגיה ששוכנת כיום במחסני חיל האוויר, התנסה שוב בהעלאת רגל על הסולם בדרך למטוס, וניסה להבין את הממשק המודרני. הוא גם פגש את אותו חבר מפעם. היום כולם מכירים את החבר כרמטכ”ל לשעבר, דן חלוץ.
היום נאמן נמצא הכי רחוק משם. כשהוא נזכר בימים ההם, הוא יודע שאם יבוא נכדו ויודיע לו כי בכוונתו להתגייס לקורס טייס, ימליץ לו לוותר, וללכת בדרך המאוחרת בה הלך סבו, שנים לאחר שירד מתא הטייס

Pierre Goldman

From Wikipedia
Pierre Goldman, (Lyon, June 22, 1944 – September 20, 1979 in Paris) was a French left-wing intellectual who was convicted of several robberies and mysteriously assassinated. It has been suspected that the Grupos Antiterroristas de Liberación (GAL) death squad was involved in his murder. His half-brother Jean-Jacques Goldman is a popular French singer.
Pierre Goldman was born near the end of World War II, the illegitimate son of Alter Mojze Goldman and Janine Sochaczewska, who were active in the FTP-MOI Resistancemovement.[1][2] After the liberation of France, his parents separated, and his father, in concert with a group of former FTP-MOI members, kidnapped him. Thereafter, he had only sporadic contacts with his mother, who returned to Poland.[2] Read More Button--orange  Foto Tomb of Pierre Goldman Coyau / Wikimedia Commons / CC-BY-SA-3.0

Pierre Goldman : l’assassinat
Pierre Goldman a été condamné pour meurtre, puis acquitté. Par la suite, le 20 septembre 1979, trois inconnus lui ont tiré dessus à bout portant, en plein Paris. Quelques jours plus tard, 15 000 personnes affluaient au Père-Lachaise. Parmi elles, ceux qui, avec lui, avaient rêvé de révolution durant les années 60 : Serge July, Régis Debray, Marc Kravetz, Alain Krivine, Bernard Kouchner, et bien d’autres personnalités. Né le 22 juin 1944, étudiant révolutionnaire à la Sorbonne, guérillero au Venezuela, écrivain en prison, Pierre Goldman avait, pour ceux qui l’ont connu ou simplement côtoyé, une personnalité hors du commun. Ses assassins n’ont jamais été retrouvés. Retour sur une affaire qui, en son temps, défraya la chronique.

The Jews in Poland-Lithuania and Russia: 1350 to the Present Day

YIVO Institute for Jewish Research

Book Talk

Antony Polonsky, Brandeis University

For centuries, Poland and Russia formed the heartland of the Jewish world. Until World War II, this area was home to over forty percent of world Jewry: nearly three and a half million Jews lived in Poland, and nearly three million more lived in the Soviet Union. Although the majority of American and European Jews originate from Eastern Europe, the history of this life and civilization is not well known, or has been reduced to a story of persecution and martyrdom. In his masterful three-volume history, ‘The Jews in Poland and Russia: 1350 to the Present Day’, Polonsky avoids sentimentalism and mythologizing, and provides a comprehensive and detailed account of this great civilization. From the towns and shtetls where Jews lived, to the emergence of Hasidism and the Haskalah movement, to the rise of Jewish urbanization, and Polish-Jewish relations during World War II, Polonsky’s book dispels myths about this culture, while demonstrating the importance of Poland and Russia as a great center of Jewish life.

Winner of the 2011 Kulczycki Book Prize for Polish Studies, and the Pro Historia Polonorum Prize for the best book on the history of Poland published in a foreign language between 2007 and 2011.

Lee J. Cobb


Lee J. Cobb was an American actor. He is best known for his performance in 12 Angry Men , his Academy Award-nominated performance in On the Waterfront , and one of his last films, The Exorcist . He also played the role of Willy Loman in the original Broadway production of Arthur Miller’s 1949 play Death of a Salesman under the direction of Elia Kazan. On television, Cobb costarred in the first four seasons of the popular, long-running western series The Virginian. He typically played arrogant, intimidating, and abrasive characters, but often had roles as respectable figures such as judges.


Born Leo Jacob in New York City, to a Jewish family of Russian and Romanian extraction. He grew up in The Bronx, New York, on Wilkins Avenue, near Crotona Park. His parents were Benjamin (Benzion) Jacob, a compositor for a foreign-language newspaper, and Kate (Neilecht). Cobb studied at New York University before making his film debut in The Vanishing Shadow (1934). He joined the Manhattan-based Group Theatre in 1935.


Cobb did summer stock at Pine Brook Country Club located in the countryside of Nichols, Connecticut, in the 1930s and early 1940s. Pine Brook was the summer home of the Group Theatre (New York) from 1931 until the 1940s. During World War II Cobb served in the First Motion Picture Unit of the Army Air Force.

Cobb entered films in the 1930s, successfully playing middle-aged and even older men while he was still a youth. He was cast as the Kralahome in the 1946 non-musical film Anna and the King of Siam. He also played the sympathetic doctor in The Song of Bernadette and appeared as James Coburn’s supervisor in the spy spoofs In Like Flint and Our Man Flint. He reprised his role of Willy Loman in the 1966 CBS television adaptation of Death of a Salesman, which included Gene Wilder, James Farentino, Bernie Kopell and George Segal. Cobb was nominated for an Emmy Award for the performance. Mildred Dunnock, who had co-starred in both the original stage version and the 1951 film version, again repeated her role as Linda, Willy’s devoted wife.

In 1957 he appeared in Sidney Lumet’s 12 Angry Men as the abrasive Juror #3. In 1959, on CBS’ DuPont Show of the Month, he starred in the dual roles of Miguel de Cervantes and Don Quixote in the play I, Don Quixote, which years later became the musical Man of La Mancha. Cobb also appeared as Wyoming ranch owner Judge Henry Garth in the first four seasons of the long-running NBC western television series The Virginian. His co-stars were James Drury, Doug McClure, Roberta Shore, Gary Clarke, Randy Boone, Clu Gulager and Diane Roter.

In 1968 his performance as King Lear with Stacy Keach as Edmund, René Auberjonois as the Fool and Philip Bosco as Kent achieved the longest run (72 performances) for the play in Broadway history.

One of his final film roles was that of police detective Lt. Kinderman in the 1973 horror film The Exorcist.

Political activity

Cobb was accused of being a Communist in 1951 testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee by Larry Parks, himself a former Communist Party member. Cobb was called to testify before HUAC but refused to do so for two years until, with his career threatened by the blacklist, he relented in 1953 and gave testimony in which he named 20 people as former members of the Communist Party USA.

Later, Cobb explained why he “named names”, saying:

Following the hearing he resumed his career and worked with Elia Kazan and Budd Schulberg, two other HUAC “friendly witnesses”, on the 1954 film On the Waterfront, which is widely seen as an allegory and apologia for testifying.


Cobb died of a heart attack in February 1976 in Woodland Hills, California, and was buried in Mount Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles. He was survived by his second wife, Mary Hirsch. His death came the day before his Exodus (1960) co-star Sal Mineo was murdered.

He was inducted, posthumously, into the American Theatre Hall of Fame in 1981.

Lee J. Cobb’s wife from 1940 to 1950s was Yiddish-theater and film actress Helen Beverley (1916—2011), daughter — Julie Cobb.
