Helena Makowska

Helena Makowska (March 2, 1893 Kryvyi Rih-August 22, 1964 Rome) also known as Elena Makowska, Helena Woynowiczówna or Helena Woyniewicz was a Russian actor.

Born in present-day Ukraine, Makowska began her acting career in Poland before moving on to perform in films throughout Europe. She is perhaps best known for her role in the classic silent film "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" (1920), which is widely regarded as a masterpiece of German expressionist cinema. In addition to acting, Makowska was also a radio personality and a journalist. She left Europe for Brazil during World War II and later settled in Rome, where she spent the rest of her life. Despite her extensive career, Makowska remained a relatively obscure figure until after her death. In recent years, however, there has been renewed interest in her work, with several film festivals and retrospectives featuring her performances.
