Studio portrait of Felicja Pleszowski as a young girl.

Photograph | Photograph Number: 60239

Studio portrait of Felicja Pleszowski as a young girl.

This photograph was part of an album that was saved and retrieved in the following manner. After the war, Felicja was standing on a street corner in Krakow waiting for a bus. A total stranger approached her and told her that she recognized her from her photographs. The Polish woman had moved into the Klopholcz's apartment and found Felicja's photo album and autograph book from school. The Polish woman had saved the two albums and after bumping into Felicja by pure chance, she returned the books to her.
