Lipko-Lipczyńska Ewelina

Her Rescue Story

With pride at the luck they had, Ewa recalled, “Throughout the whole war, about fifty people passed through our home, staying for a longer or shorter period or receiving immediate help. […] Most were Jews. […] There were also Poles wanted by the Gestapo. […] This happened over five long years, right next to a barracks full of German soldiers and in front of neighbours – residents on Polna, Iłżecka and Browarna Streets!”.
