Aneta Reyzer

Dancer and actress.

Zygmunt Turkow observed that "at the ballet school, where she had then participated in the production, there was at the time the professional dancer, the sister Reyzer..."

Jonas Turkow remarked: "Also Aneta Reyzer, the talented dancer and actress had for a long time worked in the troupe of Kadish-Khash, which was called the "Vilna Yiddish Operetta Troupe."

In 1926, R. participated in "Sambatyon."

About her destruction, there was contradictory information given: Dr. Emanuel Ringelblum in "Notes from the Ghetto," there is written:

"Aneta Reyzer, well-known Yiddish dancer, had performed with lectures of ritmik in the Harbut school [in Warsaw], on Kormelitska 22, her children productions. The children has acted as ekhte artists and had alemen onttsikt with the realism of their acting. Aneta Reyzer was sent to Treblinka."

The actor Zalmen Kaleshinov related that during the Second World War, she acted in Bialystok's State Yiddish Theatre. There she was, together with her husband, a professional. They were both remaining there at first. Then she went away to Minsk, and her husband left therein to her. She, however, in the meantime, had left on the way to visit her husband. So one was visiting the other, and they both were captured by the Nazis and killed.
