The famous mime, Marcel Marceau, has died at age 84. Marceau was born Marcel Mangel. He was Jewish. His father died at Auschwitz. During WWII, Marceau served with the French Underground and was credited with saving the lives of many Jewish children by taking them on foot through the mountains to Switzerland.


Marcel Marceau, 84, the world's greatest mime, who single-handedly revived the ancient art with his eloquent but wordless interpretations of complex emotions, died quietly in Paris on Sept. 22. No cause of death was reported.

For more than 60 years, Mr. Marceau performed on stages around the world, mesmerizing audiences with his impeccable comic sense and an unsurpassed talent for expressing beauty, conflict, despair and hope, using only his body to spark the audience's imagination.
