Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jew (in Polish and German) born in 1893, relating her experiences in the Holocaust. In September 1939 Pintus was living in Kartuzy (in German, Karthaus) with her brother Heinz. The Germans closed down Jewish businesses and looted Jewish homes. Pintus' home was also plundered and her brother was arrested; he was deported to Stutthof, where he perished. In order to avoid deportation to Lublin, Pintus managed to get permission to move to Gdańsk, claiming illness. There she worked as a caretaker for the elderly, first privately and then in an institution. In 1942 she escaped to Chmielnik to avoid deportation and found refuge in the home of Dorota Pryczkowska and her family, where she hid until the end of the war. After that she remained in Chmielnik for a while, then stayed briefly in Kartuzy, before immigrating to Germany. Else Pintus died in Berlin in 1980. She wrote her memoirs in 1947. A typed manuscript was received in Yad Vashem in 1957; Borzyszkowski saw this account and decided to publish it Pp. 7-66 present an overview, by Józef Borzyszkowski (in Polish and in German), of the contribution of Jews to culture in Pomerania and of the Pintus family's ancestry there.
