Testimony of Ewa Grynbaum. Written in Polish.
Ewa was born in Krasnik, Poland on April 9, 1939, the daughter of Schulki and Chana (nee Boimberk). Ewa's father was the rabbi of Krasnik.
When the city was conquered, Ewa, her sister and their mother were sent to the Budzyn camp. When her mother learned of the fate of children in the camp, she escaped with Ewa to Krakow. Her father didn't agree to escaping and remained in the camp. Ewa and her mother lived by means of "Aryan" identity documents. They had to leave the house where they were lodging because the woman whose home it was, was suspicious of Ewa. One night the Gestapo men came and arrested them, but in the end they were released.
Ewa and her mother survived the Holocaust; her father died of starvation.
After the war, Ewa entered a children's home. Her mother went to live in Frankfurt. Close
