Ida Kaminska Will Visit U.S. and Return to Israel when Yiddish Theater Available

Download PDF for this date

Ida Kaminska, the director of Poland’s now defunct state-sponsored Yiddish theater, left Israel today for the United States with a promise to return here permanently as soon as proper facilities are available for a Yiddish theater. Miss Kaminska and her husband left Poland last August in face of a renewed anti-Semitic campaign by the Warsaw Government following its participation in the Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia. They spent some time in Vienna prior to coming to Israel to visit relatives. Miss Kaminska indicated that the theater facilities she wants are in the process of being established and hopes was expressed that she would return to Israel soon.
