Pnina - Basia Gutman: memoirs:
She was born in the Warsaw ghetto in late 1941 or in 1942. Her real name might be Barbara Weglinski. When she was 9 months old her family gave her to Szarlote Rebhun, a Christian German woman, and her husband Meir Rebhun, who lived at 33 Krochmalna Street, in "Aryan" Warsaw. The Rebhuns raised her until August 1944; with the outbreak of the Polish uprising the Rebhun family was deported to the camps. Barbara was found in a railway carriage in the town of Milanowek and was given for adoption to a Polish couple, Stanislawa and Franciszek Kaczmarek. In March 1948, Barbara was redeemed by a representative of the Central Jewish Committee in Warsaw and was placed in a Jewish orphanage in Otwock. In September 1948 she was adopted by Mania and Mendel Himel of Lodz, and after exactly two years the family emigrated to Israel.
Pnina is trying to discover her real identity and the names of her birth parents.
