The Stanislava Roztropowicz papers include a diary, certificate, and photographic prints relating to Stanislava Roztropowicz and her family’s experience in Poland during World War II while hiding a young Jewish girl. The diary was written by Stanislava from 1943-1944 and describes her family's decision to hide an abandoned Jewish girl, Sabina Heller, their experiences during the war in Poland, the conscription of her sister, Zosia, who was forced into labor in Germany, and the burning of their home forcing the family to move. The collection also includes photographic prints of the Roztropowicz family, including Sabina, from 1943-1948 and a certificate of evacuation for the family stating their movement from newly Soviet governed Dubno to Polish governed Ostrowie, in 1945.
