"Being a Jew, my Grandmother lived in basements for years. Some of her friends betrayed her, and some Germans helped her out. They lived in a house near a bridge in the town of Novy Dwur, near Warsaw where she moved during the first months of war. In the patio of the house that still exists and is owned by my mother, a German mortar unit exchanged greetings with their Russian foes for a while. 

An arsenal was just across the street, and the Russians answered daily with their “Katyushas” as well as regular artillery. 

When the war ended, my Grandmother’s family had been exterminated almost to the last, and most of their properties confiscated, stolen or simply lost, in the Warsaw Ghetto and during the uprising against the Germans, so one day after a Soviet parade she took her children – my mother and uncle – and disappeared into the night.

She had escaped once from Stalin, and was still worried about being noticed by the Soviet secret police, so she thought that there was no other choice but to escape to the incipient western alliance.

After crossing a few borders, she finally found out in Munich that my Grandfather was still alive in Italy, and soon found her way there thorough the Alps."
