Brilliant. Who was he?

Well anything about Theodore must filtered through the understanding of his experiences during the Holocaust of WWII:

"He was born into a wealthy Jewish family in Düsseldorf, North Rhine-Westphalia, where his father was a magazine publisher. Theodore attended the University of Cologne. At age 32, under Nazi rule, he was imprisoned at the Dachau concentration camp until he signed over his family's fortune for one Reichsmark. After being deported for chess hustling from Switzerland he went to Austria where Albert Einstein, a family friend and alleged lover of his mother, helped him escape to the United States."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brother_Theodore

He did a weekly live stage show in NYC during the 80s at the 13th Street Theatre--a friend of mine at the time was his stage manager. Two hours of Theodore was enough to change your worldview forever. I also used to see him at a chess parlor on the Upper Westside hustling chess.
