Katya Adler
(Guralnik)
 

She was born on 15 May (A. S.) 1881 in Nikopol, Ukraine.

Her father was a merchant.

She learned in a cheder, and a little Russian.

Seeing a play at the Yiddish theatre, she sensed a inclination to the stage, and because of this she began to work her way into amateur groups.

In 1908 she traveled around in Sabsey's troupe as a professional actress. After that she married Yermiyahu ["Vosyem"] Adler, then toured across Russia in Fuchler's miniature troupe, then to Constantinople, Bulgaria, Romania, Austria, Germany, and since 1926 [she was] in Paris, where she acted from time to time.

When the Nazis assaulted Paris, they deported her, and she was killed.
 

Sh. E. from Anita Poliakov.
