Jadwiga Mendelson in her family’s prewar home

Image

This is a picture of my sister Jadzia (Jadwiga). It was taken at our home in Katowice, some time in the 1930s.

Jadzia was the youngest of all the siblings. She was born in 1933. I loved Jadzia. She was so sweet and pretty.

I called her 'Jadziulka.' Before the war Jadzia didn't manage to start school, so she had no schooling. My little sister was six years old when the war broke out.
