Widow Helene Thimig (Mrs. Max Reinhardt)

"The advent of Reinhardt, like that of the Moscow Art Theatre, may be considered as one of the most important things which the United States won in the war. Had it not been for the economic impoverishment of Germany and Russia, these artists would have doubtless continued their careers in their native lands." --Time Magazine

Good Mourning Widows. Joy to you and me.

Today we honor and welcome famous widow actress Helene Thimig wife of famous versatile director Max Reinhardt to our joy-ous club.

That's right Widows. The club that no one wants to joy-n.

Max Reinhardt hailed from West Germany and met Helene while managing a theatre in Vienna.

Helene married Max in 1935. They emigrated to America in 1937.

Max died in 1943.

Helene died in 1974.

Max is buried in a mausoleum in Hastings-On-Hudson, Westchester County, New York, and Helene is interred in Feuerhalle Simmering (AL1-152 Urenhain).

Mourning Joy:

Q: What bird never goes tot he barber?

A: A bald eagle.

Mourning Quote:

"Dreams die harder than life."
From "Bed of Roses" sung by Bette Midler

After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen.

Write something.

Go ahead.

I dare you.

Have a joy-filled day widows. And remember, we're not alone.
