Kirk Douglas is a name I knew well as a kid. Well, these days I check all the actors and singers from the past, and it is SHOCKING how many are freaking Jews. There are just Jews everywhere where there is money, power and fame.
This is from Wikipedia:
Kirk Douglas was born Issur Danielovitch in Amsterdam, New York on December 9, 1916, the son of Bryna "Bertha" (née Sanglel; 1884–1958) and Herschel "Harry" Danielovitch (c. 1884–1950; citations regarding his exact year of birth differ). His parents were immigrants from Chavusy, Mogilev Governorate, in the Russian Empire (present-day Belarus), and the family spoke Yiddish at home. Douglas would embrace his Jewish heritage in his later years, after a near-fatal helicopter crash at the age of 74.
His father’s brother, who immigrated earlier, used the surname Demsky, which Douglas’s family adopted in the United States.: 2 Douglas grew up as Izzy Demsky and legally changed his name to Kirk Douglas before entering the United States Navy during World War II.[a]
In his 1988 autobiography, The Ragman’s Son, Douglas notes the hardships that he, along with his parents and six sisters, endured during their early years in Amsterdam:
My father, who had been a horse trader in Russia, got himself a horse and a small wagon, and became a ragman, buying old rags, pieces of metal, and junk for pennies, nickels, and dimes … Even on Eagle Street, in the poorest section of town, where all the families were struggling, the ragman was on the lowest rung on the ladder. And I was the ragman’s son.
Douglas had an unhappy childhood, living with an alcoholic, physically abusive father. While his father drank up what little money they had, Douglas and his mother and sisters endured "crippling poverty".
