THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Herman Yablokoff Dies,
Yiddish Actor, Playwright

and "Mein Veise Blum."
He was in the Yiddish
theater for more than 55
years, having begun
playing children's roles
at tlje age of 12.
Mr.' Yablokoff did . not
limit his activities to the
American Yiddish stage. He
traveled extensively abroad
and during a seven-month
tour of 94 refugee camps in
Germany, Austria and
Italy in 1947 he gave 104
performances for 180,000
Jewish refugees, for which
he received the United
States Army Certificate of
Merit.
Mr. Yablokoff was
president of the Hebrew Ac-
tors Union, a post he held
for numerous terms be-
tween 1945 and his death.
The union, affiliated with
the Associated Actors and
Artists of America, was
founded in 1900.
He also was president of
the Yiddish Theatrical Al-
liance. He also wrote and
published his two-volume
memoirs, "Around the
World With Yiddish Thea-
ter," which won him the
1970 Zvi Kesel Prize for
Yiddish literature.

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Herman Yablokoff, the
Yiddish actor whose plays
and songs delighted genera-
tions of audiences in the
Yiddish theaters on Second
Avenue on the Lower East
Side during the 1930s and
1940s, died April 3 at age
77.
Mr. Yablokoff, who wrote,
produced and directed many
of the plays in which he ap-
p- "ed, had the gift for
equally at home in
drama, comedy, and soap
opera, frequently shifting
from one to the other in
quick succession in the
same play.
_ Sometimes, at the height
of a five-handerchief
dramatic scene, he would
ask the audience for advice
on what song he should sing
to express the dramatic
. moment. After listening to
numerous suggestions he
would ignore them all and
break into the song that
had, all along, been com-
posed for the occasion.
Born in Grodno, Po-
land, Mr. Yablokoff came
to this country in 1924
and settled in New York.
Among the extravagan-
zas he wrote were "Der
Payatz" ("The Clown);
"The King of Song";
"Goldela Dem Bakers";
