Stefania Krasucka

This is my mother, Stefania Krasucka.

This photo is from a fake ‘Kennkarte’ [identification document used in countries under German occupation], taken in Warsaw in 1942, so Mom must have been 47.

My mom was the eldest daughter of Nikodem and Cecylia Krasucki. She graduated from the music conservatory in Warsaw and ought to have become a professional pianist, but suffered from stage fright and got so nervous in front of an audience that she never managed to give a decent performance.

Ludwik Krasucki

This is me,at the age of ten. This photo must have been taken in Warsaw, around 1935.

I was a gifted child. When I went to elementary school - I was sent to a normal public school on Hoza Street - Mom arranged for me to be placed in the second grade from the start.

I could read, write, and count. At seven I finished the second grade, terribly bored and with all ‘A’s.

By then I had read all the books written by Curwood and May, as well as London's ‘Martin Eden’.

Warsaw, Polsko

Ludwik Krasucki Warsaw Poland Interviewer: Marta Janczewska Date of interview: January – February 2004  

I was interviewing Mr. Ludwik Krasucki, Chairman of the Association of Jewish Combatants and Casualties in World War II, in his apartment situated in an exclusive area of Warsaw.

Our discussion took place in his study filled with books, photographs and other mementoes. My host told his story with color and volubility, interspersed with many anecdotes.

Purim in the Jewish Community

This picture was taken in Gdansk in 2006 during Purim in the Jewish Community. That's what I look like now, as I'm telling you my story.

I became independent, shook off the shackles. Because I couldn't admit who I was.

I didn't know about the Jewish organizations that were being founded. We got a divorce.

I went into retraining and got a new, interesting job. It was a public institution and I worked there for 40 years until my retirement.

I'm an employee of merit, have been awarded the knight's cross, various medals…

Matylda Wyszynska’s daughter Katarzyna

This is my daughter Kasia, Katarzyna. She is a painter.

1950s I got a divorce and I married an actor called Wyszynski, he was an actor in Czestochowa, then in Opole, in the Thirteen Rows Theatre of Grotowski.

We weren't long together because he drank a lot, an artistic soul, essentially.

He was a Pole but he knew I was Jewish. I never made it a secret. I mean, I made it a secret from others but I told him. We were together until 1970.

Matylda Wyszynska with her colleagues

This picture was taken during some party at work.

After the war I terribly wanted to work and later, unbeknownst to Staszek, I went to work at a factory, in the machine room. And then I met my second husband.

In 1953 I started working for the labor inspection and worked there until my retirement in 1984.

Then I got a divorce (don't remember the exact year) and I married an actor called Wyszynski, he was an actor in Czestochowa, then in Opole, in the Thirteen Rows Theatre of Grotowski.
