This is the fake ‘Kennkarte’ [identification document used under German ocupation] of  my Mom, Stefania Krasucka, issued under the false name of Julia Wilczynska. The document was issued in 1940.

 

I wasn't aware that Mom had come out of the ghetto in February 1942, two months before I arrived in Warsaw with the intention of getting her out. Our neighbors, the Goscinskis, had arranged for a 'Kennkarte' for her, Mom had left the ghetto, and gone to the Lublin region. There she became involved in underground education activities. My mother was the only one to leave the ghetto, while the rest of the family remained there.
