Author. Born in Berlin, Germany, she was most recognized as a dramatist and poet in addition to being a spokeswoman for the Jews.

As a playwright and poet, some of her best known works included "In den Wohnungen des Todes" (1947), "Eli: Ein Mysterienspiel vom Leiden Israels" (1950), "Flucht und Verwandlung" (1959), "Fahrt ins Staublose" (1961) and "Zeichen im Sand" (1962).
