Veteran Israeli actor Nathan Cogan died on Wednesday morning at the age of 95. His coffin was displayed at the Cameri Theater in Tel Aviv on Friday before he was laid to rest at the Yarkon Cemetery.
Cogan was born in 1914 in Caucasia and moved to Palestine in 1920 with his family, but they then relocated to Romania because of financial difficulties. Cogan returned on his own in 1935 and began his acting career, which was interrupted by service in the British army. In 1946 he first joined the Cameri Theater, which was in its infancy. He also acted in radio skits and television shows, and later even in some French films.
Cogan is survived by his wife Dana, two daughters and a granddaughter.
