|Birth:||19th March, 1872|
|Death:||12th August, 1918|
Anna Held was born in Warsaw, Congress Poland. She was a Polish-born stage performer, most often associated with impresario Florenz Ziegfeld, her common-law husband. Held began working in the garment industry, then found work as a singer in Jewish theatres in Paris and, later, after her father's death, London, where her roles included the title role in a production by Jacob Adler of Abraham Goldfaden's Shulamith; she was also in Goldfaden's ill-fated Paris troupe, whose cashier stole their money before they ever played publicly. She was soon known for her risqué songs, flirtatious nature and willingness to show her legs on stage.
