my adored friend."
start of 1920 Sh. went away to Berlin, and there she
joined in the troupe that Asro had put together, under
the patronage of a "Yiddish theatre society." She
remained in Berlin and participated later in productions
with Avraham Morevsky, who wrote about it:
(scant) years she was associated with a loving man who
was called Doctor Shpigelgas, and we were then in Berlin
associated and linked by an intimate friendship. They
had creates several productions that were organized by a
man named Shidlover--my guest role in Leipzig and
Chemnitz. We played "Shma Yisroel (Hear, O Israel)."
Chana Sherman had acted in it."
Sh. arrived in Riga and there joined in the Yiddish
Meutim Theatre (under the leadership of Morevsky.)
also noted that at times in Berlin she turned to him,
that he should give her protection, that she should
receive an understudy role in a motion picture.
later made her home in Riga, where from time to time she
used to play Yiddish theatre and often performed in
literary evenings and concerts.
Radinov writes, she was killed during the first Action
in the Riga ghetto on 30 November 1941, when more than
seventeen thousand Jews: women, children and the elderly
were taken away on a frosty, snowy Sunday to the Rumbula
Forest, where she, as well as them, were mercilessly
destroyed by the Nazis.
