Max Glücksmann
Max Glücksmann, born (Mordechai David Glücksmann) (Czernowitz, Bukovina, Austrian Empire, March 8, 1875 - October 20, 1946, Buenos Aires, Argentina) was an Argentine pioneer of the music and film industries. Biography Glücksmann was born in Czernowitz, then part of the Austrian Empire, and emigrated to Argentina in 1890.
