The End on Halloween

A son of a rabbi, Erik Weisz was destined to perform for many.  Young Erik decided at the age of 9 years old, to join a traveling circus.  Erik learned quickly that he had some very astounding acrobatic moves and he also learned how to pick locks.  This lead this young man to a surprising career.

By 1900 he was performing his showa internationally.  Erik was an elaborate showman.

While talking about his abilities, a young student took advantage of his words and struck him in the stomach.  These blows were the beginning of the end.  While on his way home, the appendix ruptured and he was hospitalized.

On October 31, 1926, he died from his injuries.  And this was the end of who became Harry Houdini.
