    Hermanowski family
    Jan and Stanislawa Hermanowski, their son Wojciech , and his older brother Andrzej, lived at 32/44 Raszynska Street in Warsaw. Jan was a high official in the city government. After the German occupation of Poland, both boys continued their education. Wojciech was able to do so legally due to his age, and Andrzej studied in an underground high school. After the Warsaw Uprising in August 1944, Wojciech and his parents were deported to a slave labor camp in Wriezen, and later Wojciech was transferred to work at a dairy in nearby Eberswalde. Andrzej was imprisoned in Auschwitz, Neuengamme, Braunschweig and Bergen Belsen. The family was reunited at the end of the war and transferred to Sweden, where they were able to convalesce at a center for refugees.
