D. was born in 1905. She finished the Kiev Theatrical Institute under the name of Lisenko.

In 1931 she performed in the Yiddish State Theatre for young spectators, and after the year 1940 she worked in the theatre in the city of Sumy, Ukraine.

In the beginning of the Nazi-Soviet conflict, she was tempted to return to Kiev, but she didn't appear, because the Nazis had already stationed themselves at the front and in back of Kiev, so that one couldn't get in or out.
