S. began as a chorus singer.

She was very much a lovely person. Since 1913 she crossed over to act in roles.

In 1924 she acted in the member's troupe in the Palace Theatre in Vilna.

She was on the member's document that was found at YIVO, and was noted, that she acted exclusively in Vilna and didn't travel around, and that she was not dependent on the actor's profession.

According to the "Yizkhor-Reshime (Yizkor List)" [as found] in the program of the State Yiddish Theatre in Poland, A. was killed by the Nazis in Poland.
