Robert Clary, the French actor, singer and Holocaust survivor who portrayed Corporal LeBeau on the World War II-set sitcom Hogan’s Heroes, has died. He was 96.

Clary, who was mentored by famed entertainer Eddie Cantor and married one of his five daughters, died Wednesday morning at his home in Los Angeles, his granddaughter Kim Wright told The Hollywood Reporter.

Wow, what a life he had. I knew he had been interned in WWII, but I'd thought it was because he was in the French resistance. I didn't know he was sent to Auschwitz at 16, where the rest of his family was murdered.

I watched him on Hogan's Heroes, of course, but he was also on Days of Our Lives when I was watching it. Watching someone on the small screen daily makes you feel like you know them a little bit in a strange way.

RIP.
