Born in 1904 in Baltremantz (Butrimantz?), Lithuania.
Shlomo received a secular
education. He studied in Kovno's university and was
active in the unionist movement. Until 1941 he lived in
Kovno, later in the Vilna ghetto, where he was a civil
servant in the Jewish management. In the 1920s he was a worker at the Kovno "Folksblat," then
Yiddish newspaper. In the Vilna ghetto he published in
a weekly newspaper bulletin "Geto yedius (Ghetto
Information)" (Vilna, 1942-43.) At the end of 1943
he was sent away to the ulinurmen camp, to Derpt (Tartu),
Estonia, and there he perished from hunger and scabies.
In the ghetto he was (the
source) of the information about the Lithuanian society
for Herman Kruk, who wrote a diary. In one of the
notices in the diary he was speaking about "a binding
issue," according to which there was a hint that B.
suspected that he stood as a close witness for the
Germans, but it didn't manifest itself. So it
was a mess.
B. had translated for the ghetto theatre the European
plays "The Man Under the Bridge," which was performed in
His wife and his two small
children had magically endured in Kovno, within the ghetto.
In 1943 they were caught and killed in the ninth fort.
