The Badchan

A comedian or jester initially hired to entertain the attendees at Shmuel's and Fayge's wedding. He correctly predicts that the Nazi officer who escorts the villagers away is not to be trusted. He frequently speaks his mind even when doing so might place his life at risk. He perishes in the camp after being chosen for execution.
