The Fischer Family
before World War II
Luba Fischer, Tibetan Dancer
"Daughter of the Jewish actors
Liza Barska Fischer and Herman Fischer, studied at the University
of Warsaw. In 1931, she finished the Malubhaska State
in Warsaw and joined the Polish theatre. Fischer had already
appeared in 1926 on the Yiddish stage in the Kaminski theatre. She
was the wife of the extremely gifted Polish artist Jacek Woszczerowicz.
As reported in Yonas Turkov, from the beginning of the German occupation of Warsaw. she was in the Warsaw ghetto. Afterwards she went over to the Arian side, but when the ghetto was closed hermetically she could no longer enter and could not send help to her father and sister Annie /Anya who remained there. She alone, being a Jew, had to flee Warsaw. Later she returned and died in a tragic way. In 1929 she participated in a movie 'In the Polish Woods' based on a book by Yosef Opatoshu."
