Ida Kaminska, Proponent
of Yiddish Theater Dies

NEW YORK (JTA) — Ida
Kaminska, a leading per-
former in the classical Yid-
dish theater for more than
60 years, died May 21 at age
80.
Miss Kaminska, who
came to the United States in
1968, was known to genera-
tions of Yiddish theater-
goers in Poland.
But she was best known
outside the Yiddish stage
er performance in the
f
1
Czechoslovak film,
"The Shop on Main Street,"
in which she played an old
Jewish shopkeeper who
could not understand why
she was being forced out of
her store and home by the
Nazis.
Born in 1899 in Odessa,
she came from a theatri-
cal family. Her father,
Avram Izhak Kaminska,
founded the Yiddish
Theater in Moscow and
had his own company.
Her mother, Esther
Rachel Kaminska, was
known as the "mother of
the Yiddish stage."
Although her parents put
her on the stage when she
was .5, Ida had originally
planned to become a
psychiatrist. But after her
parents gave her a leading
role in an operetta and she
received a warm reception
she decided to remain in the
theater.
With her first husband,
Zygmunt Turkow, whom
she later divorced, she es-
tablished the Warsaw Yid-
dish Art Theater which per-
formed until 1931. When
the Nazis invaded Poland,
she and her family fled and
ended up in Soviet Central
Asia.
The family was first
courted but later got into
trouble with Soviet
authorities. Although Ida
was allowed to return to Po-
land after the war, her
daughter, Ruth,• was im-
prisoned for several years.
Miss Kaminska was
helped by the Polish gov-
ernment in establishing
the Jewish National The-
ater of Poland which she
headed until she left for
the U.S. in 1968 in the
wake of anti-Semitism in
Poland kindled by the
1967 Six-Day War.
Miss Kaminska and her
husband, Marian Melman,

who died last year, contin-

unsuccessfully to start a
Yiddish theater in Israel

Her most recent appear-
ance was this month, in
Peter Weiss' "The Investi-
gation" in which she spoke
Yiddish while others trans-
lated it into English. Miss
Kaminska, who lived with
her daughter, Ruth, here,
wrote her autobiography
"My Life, My Theater,"
