Max Berol (1868-1930) was a professional mentalist and illusionist.


Berol worked in an act, including brother William, which performed throughout Europe, the United States and Japan.

As "Konorah", he worked with assistant Nora Belmonte.

He invented Mene Tekel Board around 1898. With his brothers, Felix and William, performed an illusion they called "Askme". It is a large, transparent clock dial, which was taken to any part of the house, and no matter what question is asked it would answer instantaneously anything that could be answered by letters or figures.[1]

He joined the Society of American Magicians (No. 132) at the annual meeting in 1906. He returned to Germany, where he became head of the Variety Artists' Federation, in Berlin.
