A. was born on 19 May 1888 in Warsaw, Poland. Her parents were owners of an iron-[giserey]. She learned in a pension, felt a great desire for the stage, and she participated in an amateur production of her cousin Mark Arnstein's play "Dos vilner bel habitl" in Polish, later with amateurs in Yiddish in "Uriel Acosta" in Kompaneyets' theatre. Then she went on tour with the "amateurs" across the province.

Her first professional stage activity began with Zandberg in Lodz in Zelin's theatre in the play "Di tsvey serzhonten". Here she acted for two seasons, and she traveled back to Warsaw, where she entered into Spivakovski's troupe with which she traveled for six years across Russia. Then she acted for two-and-a-half years in Jardin d'Hiver, three months in Berlin, made a tour across Germany, went to Paris and here put together member troupes until the outbreak of the war. Then she helped with permissions to act in Yiddish theatre in Paris, participating in the "Peretz Theatre", and she acted then for one year in Switzerland, a half year in Belgium and in Germany.  The last year she acted from time to time in France.

Specialty: Mother roles.
