Dora Wasserman plaque unveiled

Veterans of Montreal’s Yiddish theatre gathered June 20 at the corner of Westbury and Côte Ste. Catherine for the unveiling of a memorial plaque dedicated to the centenary of Yiddish theatre pioneer Dora Wasserman.

Sue Montgomery, mayor of Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough, officiated, along with Wasserman’s daughter, Bryna. Dora Wasserman was the driving force behind the creation of the drama group that today bears her name and continues to perform in Yiddish at the Segal Centre.
