Lilit


Yekhezkel Kornhelder writes:

"She, a poem to me, was Vilna itself. She lived a bit of time in Bialystok, and also took to participating in the artistic group, which Nakhum Tsemakh had founded [e"h] (together with the wife of Meir Eyzenshtat).

She had married Benjamin Unterman, who was an actor until the end of the First World War.

He later used to perform with recitations of culture-faranshtaltungen. Afterwards Lilit had gegt with him.

He was deported and was killed during the Second World War by the Nazis.

Lilit later married a certain Grundman.

She had acted in "Maske," and in a range of other theatre spectacles. Both, she and her husband, and the poem itself, also a child, were killed during deportation.

Lilit was a sister-in-law of the actress Blumental.
