Sonya Mishurat

(Sarah Kheyke Rabinovitsh)


Born in Nikopol, Kherson Gubernia, Ukraine. Her father was a [water leader=vaser firer].

When Meyer Mishurat performed with his troupe in Nikopol, she became known to him, and he moved her into his troupe. After his marriage to her, he got her to act in prima donna roles.

M. acted [ksdr] in her husband's troupe, and as a mature [actress] she had there permanently taken the [oybn-on].

After the death of her son and husband, she adopted a youngster, who went around with her as she crossed the Ukraine as her "son", and she performed with him as a "wunderkind (wonder child)" in "concerts".
