Here are 2 famous actors from Poland died in Starvation:

Eugeniusz Bodo

Eugeniusz Bodo (December 28, 1899 Geneva-October 7, 1943 Kotlas) otherwise known as Bohdan Eugène Junod, Bogdan Eugeniusz Junod, Eugene Bodo or King of Polish Actors was a Polish film director, actor, screenwriter, singer, film producer and comedian.

He was born to a family of Polish actors who were touring Switzerland at the time. Bodo rose to fame in Polish cinema during the 1930s, where his talent for comedy and singing made him a popular figure. He is best known for his roles in the films Rapsodia Bałtyku (Baltic Rhapsody) and Pieśniarz Warszawy (Singer of Warsaw).

In addition to his acting career, Bodo was also a successful film director, though many of his films were lost during World War II. He was also an accomplished singer, recording numerous popular songs and operettas.

During the war, Bodo was imprisoned at Fort VII in Poznań, Poland before being sent to a Nazi concentration camp in Kotlas, Russia where he ultimately died. Despite his tragically short life, Bodo's legacy lives on in Polish cinema and theater, and he is still recognized as one of the greatest talents of his time.

Heinrich George (October 9, 1893 Szczecin-September 25, 1946 Oranienburg) also known as Georg August Friedrich Hermann Schulz was a Polish actor and film producer. His children are called Götz George and Jan George.

Heinrich George had a successful career in German film, television and theater, appearing in over 100 films. He gained particular fame for his roles in the Nazi propaganda films, including the lead role in the 1942 film "Jud Süß" which promoted anti-Semitic stereotypes. During the height of the Nazi regime, George was appointed as the director of the Berlin State Theatre, a position which he held until the end of World War II. After the war, he was arrested by Soviet authorities and died in captivity in 1946, possibly due to mistreatment and malnutrition. Despite his controversial actions during the war, George has been remembered for his significant contributions to German film and theater prior to the Nazi era.
