Turns out, Maya Plisetskaya came from a long line of Badass Jewish Women. Her mother, Rachel Messerer-Plisetskaya was a star of Russian silent film, but her promising career was cut short when she and her husband were detained in the Great Purge of 1936-1937.  Rachel’s three children: Maya, Alexander, and Azari were adopted by Messerer-Plisetskaya‘s siblings.  Maya went to her sister Sulamith Messerer, a gifted ballet dancer who went on to lay the foundations for classical ballet in Japan. Sulamith formally adopted Maya after her parents were executed and later coached Maya into one of the greatest ballet dancers of all time.
