Abstract:

Lawner's memoirs (p. 19-82), describing her experiences in the Holocaust, are interspersed with comments by her daughter, Miriam Tisher. Lawner was born in 1918 in Warsaw. She describes life in the Warsaw ghetto, where she was married to Adek Knaster in 1940. Her brother was deported to Treblinka following a roundup in September 1943, but he survived, and returned to Warsaw to warn the Jews about realities in the death camp. Lawner, her husband, and parents escaped from the ghetto to the "Aryan side", and survived there until the liberation. From their hiding places they witnessed the Warsaw ghetto uprising, in which Lawner's two siblings were killed. After the war the remaining family emigrated to Palestine, and in 1948 to Australia.
