Born in Warsaw, Poland. Close to dramatist Mark Arnstein. She acted in a dramatic union in Warsaw, and after settling at the end of her twenty years in Paris, she worked by day, and in the evening acted in a dramatic circle and afterwards she performed with the Piat Theatre, where she participated in a large portion of the actor's repertoire.

In 1942 during the German "evacuation" of the Jews of Paris, she with her husband, young and healthy, except for the request of the [betn], was led together with more than 10,000 Jews to a death camp from which there was no return.
