    Biography
    Frank Morgens (originally Mieczyslaw Morgenstern) grew up in Lodz. He was married to Maria Minc, who gave birth to twin daughters, Sylvia Awiwa and Anne Ileana in April 1939. During the war the family secured false papers and a place to live with the assistance of a Polish Catholic woman, Walentyna Zak. The Morgensterns lived out the war in Olsztyn, where they were joined by Maria's mother, Stefania Gutentaj Minc, and Mieczyslaw's mother Dorota Gotheil Morgenstern. Dorota came to live with them after escaping from the Warsaw ghetto.

    Walentyna Zak converted to Judaism immediately after the war and married the Polish Jew, Zew Sztajnert. The couple moved to Israel in 1948.
