Sara Ginter
(Meysterman)

 

G. was born on 17 April 1897 in Lubar, Volin Gubernia, Russia, into a well-to-do family.

She learned in a Russian school. From childhood she excelled as a singer and strove to the stage. Several years later she came to Lodz to her father who was a cantor, and she became a member in "Hazmir" and then a chorus singer with Julius Adler, where from time to time she was given small roles.

In 1919 she immigrated to Antwerp and went into the local Yiddish troupe, debuting as "Hindl" in Asch's "Got fun nekamah (God of Vengeance)". Several weeks later, after her marriage to actor Nathan Ginter, she traveled to Paris, acted in the local Yiddish theatre, and then in Poland, Russia, Germany, Argentina, Cuba, Chile and Mexico.
