Pola later received false papers under the name "Pelagia Pisula" and was sent to Germany as a forced laborer at a munitions factory in Güstrow. Includes her false papers, essays written about Pola Spitzer's experiences, her own testimony, and documents related to Natalia Pisula being designated "Righteous Among the Nations."
