Yiddish Theatre Roles & Plays - Short Yiddish Translation needed #poland

Connie Fisher Newhan
 

Dear All,

My grandmother Liza BARSKA FISCHER/FISZER was an actress in the Yiddish
Theatre in Poland. I have ten photos of her >from various roles and plays.
On the back of each photo is a short (several words at most) inscription. I
wonder if it might be the name of the play or her part. Any help with a
translation would be deeply appreciated. I have five now on ViewMate.

They are on ViewMate at the following address ...
