    Biography
    Eve Bergstein (born Eve Nisencwajg) was born in 1936 in Staszow, Poland. In 1941, Eve was placed in hiding with a Catholic couple, Wiktoria and Stanislaw Szumielewicz. For the duration of the war, Eve posed as their orphaned niece, and in 1943 she took first communion at the local church. She remained with the Szumielewicz family until 1946 at which time an uncle found her and brought her to a Jewis orphanage in Krakow. From there, Eve was taken to the Schirmeck orphanage in France, where she remained until emigrating to Canada in 1947 to live with an aunt who had immigrated before the war. After the war Yad Vashem honored the Szumielewicz family as Righteous Among the Nations.
