Ida Ehre
Birth: Jul. 9, 1900, Czech Republic
Death: Feb. 16, 1989
Hamburg, Germany

Austrian-German actress, theatre manager and producer. She studied at the Academy for Music and Theater in Vienna. She gave her first professional performance in 1918 and performed in dozens of European cities.

Born to Austrian Jewish parents,in Nazi Germany, Ms. Ehre was not allowed to work as an actress, and so she helped in the gynaecolological practice of her husband, Dr. Bernhard Heyde (1899–1978), in Böblingen. After the Kristallnacht, she planned to emigrate to Chile with her husband and her daughter Ruth (1927-2006). However, the ship they were on was ordered to return to Hamburg because of t he outbreak of World War II. She was later arrested by the Gestapo and interned in the concentration camp Fuhlsbüttel for six weeks. Her mother and her sister had been killed by the Nazis.
She is credited with being a major force in reviving the German theater after World War II. She founded her theater, the Hamburg Kammerspiele, seven months after Germany's defeat in 1945. She continued to act after founding the Kammerspiele, and one of her best-remembered performances was in the title role of Bertolt Brecht's ''Mother Courage.''

She ist buried on the Ohlsdorfer Friedhof, Hamburg near Gustav Gründgens(bio by: Holy Grail)
