Hilde Berscheid passes away

January 2011

At the age of 90, Hilde Berscheid passed away in Trier. She married Willy Berscheid  in 1947 and was his partner for their acts Sambalo and Omar Pasha.

We shared such wonderful emotion, when we took over the Omar Pasha act from her in 1975 – friendship which only grew as we visited through the years.  

After Mrs Berscheid’s death on 12 January 2011, we alone are carrying that ancient Black Art tradition created in 1895.
