The Pauline Kra papers consist of biographical materials and photographs documenting the Bartkowski and Skornicki families from Łódź, their confinement in the Tomaszów Mazowiecki ghetto, Pauline’s hidden Jewish identity in a Warsaw convent, and the family’s relocation to Caracas after the war and eventual immigration to the United States. Biographical materials include a Tomaszów Mazowiecki identification card for Natalia Skornicka’s mother Tauba Bartkowska, an American Foreign Service application for non‐immigrant visa for Natalia and Paulina Skornicka, and Polish, Venezuelan, and American identification and immigration papers for Paulina Skornicka. Photographs depict Paulina Skornicka and members of her father’s and mother’s families, mostly in Łódź but also in Caracas and Brussels. One photograph documents Paulina’s first communion while she was hiding under a non‐Jewish identity in a convent in Warsaw.
