This is Salo Fiszgrund with his second wife, Gusta-Maria Fiszgrund. After the war, at first they lived at the Jewish Committee where Salo worked. The first Committee, which was established in Warsaw, had its premises in the Praga district, on Targowa, it was a detached house surrounded by a garden. I think it's this house in the photo here. I guess it's 1946 or early 1947. Salo Fiszgrund got married again after the war. His first wife died in Piotrków Trybunalski. Salo Fiszgrund was the last secretary general of the Bund, and for some time the Joint's official representative in Poland. He frequently traveled abroad on Bund and Joint business. Salo's second wife, Gusta-Maria, was older than me, birth year 1917 or 1918. Her proper name was Guta. Maria was her name from the fake Aryan papers. My husband called her Gusta-Maria. I know that her first husband was a jeweler and had a store, probably on Targowa Street. He died in the Warsaw ghetto. She met Salo in the ghetto, being already a widow. They left the ghetto together through the sewers. She went to some priest, somewhere near Warsaw, I think it was Podkowa Lesna , and she worked as his housekeeper. She was a pretty woman, good-looking, shapely. She worked as a clerk after the war.
