Olga Wohlbrück (1867–1933) was an Austrian-German actress, director, and writer. She's considered the first female director in Germany.
Olga Wolhbrück was born in Austria in 1867 to Max and Olga Wolhbrück; her parents both came from acting families. She spent much of her childhood in Russia before moving to Germany and studying acting from her maternal grandmother.
She established a flourishing literary career for herself, producing novels, short stories, and plays while continuing to work as an actress in Berlin. In 1913, with the release of To Give a Girl Away (Ein Mädchen zu Verschenken), she became Germany's first female director. She wrote other scripts over the years, but that was her sole directorial effort.
