In reading about various artists and intellectuals who suffered under Nazism, I stumbled across a brief bio of a ballet dancer who was trained at the Mariinsky, went to Berlin in 1926, and ran a successful ballet school there. In 1938, she and her Jewish husband (Joseph Lewitan) made their way to Paris and eventually in 1947 to New York. She is described as "broken" after those struggles and never regained a career.
I'm curious if we know anything about her final years in New York, when both NYCB and ABT were establishing themselves. It's always interesting to learn more about the impact on artists and others of totalitarian regimes, whether Nazis or Communists or others.
