metal worker, active in the "Bund" under the pseudonym

school, which she didn't finish because of material
reasons. She worked in an office and through her
acquaintance with David Herman in 1926, she entered into his
dramatic studio, but already after two weeks she debuted
in Siedlce and soon thereafter performed in the "Azazel"
Theatre in Warsaw.
In 1927 she acted for a
season in "Vi"kt" and afterwards with the Vilna Troupe.
