B. was born on 6 May 1891 in
Zychlin, Poland. Her parents were wholesale merchants. She
completed a folkshul, then a pro-gymnasium in Warsaw.
As a child she used to excel
in school as a declamator, and when she saw a Yiddish
production in Kutno in 1907, in which Morris Bielavski
also participated, she felt a strong desire for the
stage, and she accepted B.'s proposal to travel to
Scandinavia, where they got married. She acted later
in Denmark in Yiddish theatre with amateurs (then with
professionals). She also guest-starred often in Yiddish
theatre in Sweden and Norway.
In Copenhagen she attended
dramatic courses, and in 1920 she acted in Danish in the
Casino Theatre, and she participated many times for the
"Nordic Film Company".
In October 1921 she came to
America, where she acts from time to time.
