Golditsa


G. was born in Bucharest, Rumania.

According to Itsikl Goldenberg her name was Golda and she was the wife of a theatre painter -- Weiss or Weissman.

During a conflict between Goldfaden and his troupe, Goldfaden made it to America with her. Goldfaden related in his autobiography: "The new actress had quickly progressed on the stage, because as a waif, only for the stage, she wasn't built to frighten people and had a great deal of courage and cheek. Then she acted in "Shmendrik", where she copied very well the [antlofenem] Mogulesko..."

According to Itzhak Libresko, Golditsa later acted in a members troupe across the Rumanian province.
