Notre guide à Drohobytch - Alfred Schreyer.
Alfred Schreyer (en yiddish אלפרעד שרייער, né le 8 mai 1922 à Drohobytch dans la voïvodie de Lwów, alors en Pologne, aujourd’hui oblast de Lviv en Ukraine) est un violoniste, chanteur et militant culturel juif polonais. À l'heure actuelle, il est le dernier juif de la ville survivant de la Shoah à Drohobytch et le dernier élève survivant de Bruno Schulz.
Il entretient sa mémoire, notamment en participant régulièrement au Festival Bruno Schulz de Drohobytch.
Trouvé grâce au GOOGLE une information sur le documentaire sur sa vie (en anglais).
“Alfred Screyer from Drohobycz” a documentary directed and co-written by Marcin Gizycki.
This lyrical film is the story of the extraordinary life of Alfred Schreyer, the last Jew of Drohobycz, Ukraine, a 90+ years old Holocaust survivor. In his lifetime, Drohobycz has been part of Poland, a German occupied territory, the Soviet Union, and the Ukraine. He is also a wonderful musician, a singer, and superb interpreter of Polish pre-war popular songs that sound like Jewish tango. Mr. Schreyer guides us around Drohobycz, a town where Bruno Schulz, the famous writer and artist (and Mr. Schreyer’s high school teacher), also lived. The film is a requiem for Drohobycz, the town as it used to be before the German occupation and Communist rule changed it irretrievably. Our protagonist takes us to the backstreets and graveyards – sites where you can discern the traces of the spirit of the former multicultural town.

interesting story about this old man. Where does he live now? Still in Drohobybytch?
The portrait itself, well - to me, the person in the right side is disturbing, also the contast is not the best.
Nevertheless, thanks for sharing. Let´s hope he has a nice and calm life after all.

Elisabeth - I found his story quite intriguing so I googled and found this slideshow - with I believe some of his music accompanying it. Perhaps others would like to see. What an amazing man he is - especially if he is still singing like that! Best wishes to you, Sara
