Mrs. Ida Kaminska, the first lady of the Yiddish stage in Poland, will appear at Carnegie Hall with her troupe on Feb. 9 in a program of drama, poetry readings and songs. It will be her first professional appearance since she came to the United States last year after leaving Poland because of the anti-Semitic campaign there. Mrs. Kaminska formerly headed the Yiddish State Theater in Warsaw.
