Sh. Blakher writes about her:
"A yearlong chorister from
the Vilna Yiddish Theatre. She was at home in the entire
operetta repertoire, both Yiddish and European. At times
an actress was sick, and they went immediately to
"Celia" (this is what she was called at the scene.)
In 1925 she went to work,
touring with an itinerant troupe in the province, taking
a prominent place as a soubrette and character actress.
The provincial audience had a deep love for her, and
when they arranged a benefit for her in Baranowitz, she
was at the large circus building until the last ticket
Later she married the artist
(Leib) Kuznetsov, whom she had loved gemeynzamen
vunder-veg. She came to travel to Vilna, and there
there was born her only son Borele. She became an
actress and remained a faithful mother to her only son.
She was tempted from time to time, but she had been out
of range [rey], in the war theatre they also engaged
her, but they had not given her any roles to play.
Moreover, this did not last long.... Then came the
destruction of the theatre, the destruction of Jewish
Vilna, together with all the Jews from Pohulanka Street,
with her entire family-- [her husband was taken away
earlier] --one way-- through the Lukiskes prison, with
her son going beforehand to Ponar."
