G. was born on 3 March 1909 in Warsaw, Poland.

Her parents were merchants who carried themselves over to Russia.

Due to the fact that her brother, Peter Amatin, was a Yiddish actor, G. had the opportunity to his nont to the theatre, and as a child acted in children's roles with Rapel in the Bolgarov theatre, and she used to arrange children's productions in the homes. When her family immigrated to Constantinople, G. also acted there in children's roles. Here she also learned in school and music with the theatre director Grushkovsky-Grushkov.

Afterwards she traveled with her brother to Rumania, and there she began to act in adult roles in her brother's troupe, later in a member's troupe with Jacob Silbert as the guest-star, then across the province, and in the summer of 1924 with Ettinger and again with various itinerant troupes, in 1927 for Reysh in Czernowitz and later through Itsikl Goldenberg first came the opportunity to act with Baratov.
