She recounts moving to Kalisz when she was eighteen months old; German invasion; fleeing to Kutno, Łódź, then Warsaw; joining her maternal grandparents in Rzeszów; her grandparents' deaths; ghettoization; her mother paying a Polish woman to hide her; being returned because she wouldn't stop crying; accompanying her mother to work; her mother's boss hiding them and providing them with Polish identity papers; staying with another Pole; a brief visit to her father in the ghetto (she never saw him again); traveling to Warsaw; her mother working as a housekeeper; moving frequently to avoid discovery; her mother's visits; moving with assistance from a German soldier; traveling to Warsaw, then Kalisz after the war; reunion with an uncle; traveling to Munich; attending school in a displaced persons camp; her mother's remarriage; and emigration to the United States. Ms. G. discusses her mother's postwar nervous breakdown; having no sense as a child of being Jewish; marriage to a survivor; and her children's lack of interest in her experiences until recently.
