Sh. was from Romania.

She settled in Paris and performed as a member in the "PIAT" Theatre, where she participated in various play productions, e.g. in Bergelson's "Der toyber" and Sholem Aleichem's "Mentshn-aristokratn."

In 1942 she, at the hands of the Germans, was deported to a concentration camp from where she did not return, and it isn't known where and under what circumstances she was killed.

Her husband managed to save himself.
