    Harry Houdini

    Jew Score:



    (Ehrich Weiss)
    March 24, 1874 – October 31, 1926

    If you think of Renaissance Men, you might think of Leonardo da Vinci. But why not Harry Houdini?

    Escape artist extraordinaire. Exposer of charlatans. Silent movie star. Magazine publisher. Pioneer aviator.


    That's right, Harry Houdini, the man whose name became synonymous with magic, was really Ehrich Weiss, a Hungarian immigrant, and a son of a rabbi.

    So as far as Renaissance Men go, we might not have Leonardo, but we definitely got Houdini. Not bad at all!

    Verdict: Jew.
