The authoress was a little girl of ten when she used to recite poetry in public and accompany on the piano her father G. Servadio who was a violin-virtuoso. One night, at a performance in Frankfurt am Main, Fräulein Bertha Pappenheim, then about forty, was in the audience; obviously much impressed by the artistic gifts of the pretty little girl, she went to see her father and told him about her disapproval: it did not seem right to use a child's talents in public at such a tender age. When he replied that he could not afford to do without her collaboration, Fräulein Pappenheim offered to befray the costs of her education and later training for her artistic career. She kept her promise in the most generous way.

With Fräulein Pappenheim's help the family settled in Vienna, where the child attended school and the young girl was introduced into high society and artistic circles through the influence and recommendation of Fräulein Pappenheim who then provided the means for the attendance of the “Schauspielschule” and helped her in every way to become a most successful and well-known actress.
