Robert Clary

Robert started off his life as the youngest in a family of 14 children born in Paris, France. He was already a professional singer by the age of 12. In 1942 he and 12 of his family were deported by the Nazi regime. He would be the only surviving member. After returning to France he had discovered a couple of his siblings had not been deported and had survived. He began singing again and had a few hit singles with minor labels before signing with Capitol Records. A national tour in the US got him discovered and he would make his first appearance on TV for "The Colgate Comedy Hour." He would next get a chance on Broadway for a show titled "New Faces of 1952." This led to a number of Broadway shows and motion picture roles. Next came his most recognizable role as Lebeau on "Hogan's Heroes." This was a surprise that he should take on a role that would bring up such horrific memories of the Nazi's and his family's demise. He followed this role up with a few soap opera appearances. He became a spokesman for the Holocaust survivors in his later days and had a documentary about his life created for PBS called "Robert Clary A-5714, A Memoir of Liberation."
