|In the village of Wawolnice, Albach-Retty played the part of "Alter Kaczyne".|
Wolf Albach-Retty was a German actor. He was one of the historical re-enactors who performed as a Jew at the tourist village of Wawolnice in the mid-21st Century. He played Alter Kaczyne, the village melamed. Many of his young students were the children of the re-enactors.
Like many others in the village, Albach-Retty soon came to identify with his Jewish character.
Wolfgang "Wolf" Albach-Retty (1906-1967) was an OTL Austrian actor. However, he did not appear in Suss the Jew (1940), the Nazi "hate film" which provided the names for three other main characters in "Shtetl Days".
