[Another scumbag from when I was a kid. I watched Victor Borge on Tv. He was so famous. The Jews even nicknamed him “The Great Dane” – from Denmark.
Børge Rosenbaum (3 January 1909 – 23 December 2000), known professionally as Victor Borge (/?b??r??/ BOR-g?), was a Danish comedian, conductor, and pianist who achieved great popularity in radio and television in the United States and Europe. His blend of music and comedy earned him the nicknames “The Clown Prince of Denmark,” “The Unmelancholy Dane,” and “The Great Dane.”
Victor Borge was born “Børge Rosenbaum” on 3 January 1909 in Copenhagen, Denmark, into an Ashkenazi Jewish family. His parents, Bernhard and Frederikke (née Lichtinger) Rosenbaum, were both musicians: his father a violist in the Royal Danish Orchestra, and his mother a pianist. Borge began piano lessons at the age of two, and it was soon apparent that he was a prodigy. He gave his first piano recital when he was eight years old, and in 1918 was awarded a full scholarship at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, studying under Olivo Krause. Later on, he was taught by Victor Schiøler, Liszt‘s student Frederic Lamond, and Busoni‘s pupil Egon Petri.
Borge even helped Jews escape from Hitler: Borge helped start several trust funds, including the Thanks to Scandinavia Fund, which was started in dedication to those who helped the Jews escape the German persecution during the war.
