Yakov Mikhailovich Berger , who later adopted the name Jacques Bergier ,  was born in Odessa in Mikhail Berger, his father, was a Jewish wholesale grocer and his mother, Etlia Krzeminiecka, was a former revolutionary. He was a gifted child: in his autobiography he said that at two he read his first newspaper and at four he could easily read Russian, French and Hebrew. He was a speed reader until the end of his life he could read 4 to 10 books per day and had an eidetic memory.
He was a vivacious child, and he told fabulous sounding stories of discussing strategy with generals as well as talking with tramps, prostitutes, political activists and businessmen in the streets of Odessa. He never went to school but had private tutors. Young Yakov Mikhailovich went to a Talmudic school and he became enthralled with the study of the Kabbalah and its mysteries.
Besides that he studied mathematics, physics, German and English. He read everything he could lay hands on, but his favourite reading was science fiction. In the family moved to France. According to Walter Lang , Bergier was approached by Fulcanelli with a message for Helbronner about man's possible use of nuclear weapons.
The meeting took place in June in a laboratory of the Gas Board in Paris. In Bergier met Louis Pauwels, a writer and editor, in Paris. They would later collaborate on the book Le Matin des Magiciens , which was published in France in This book takes the reader on a neo-surrealistic tour of modern European history focusing on the purported influence of the occult and secret societies on politics. It also attempts to connect alchemy with nuclear physics, hinting that early alchemists understood more about the actual function of atoms than they are credited.
