Abstract:

The diary of a Jew (née Latrowska, 1909-1989) who fled from the Warsaw ghetto in the summer of 1942 with her eight-year-old daughter to Chęciny, where she had relatives. The Jews of Chęciny had been deported; only some remained there working for the Germans. They wandered from place to place in Chęciny for several months until an elderly Polish grave-digger let them hide in a small house near the Jewish cemetery, where he lived with his daughter. He prepared a hiding place in the cellar, where Guta's cousin Isaak joined them. Describes their everyday life in the cellar, which she called a "tomb". Isaak was caught outside and killed, but Guta and her daughter survived the war. Some years afterwards they emigrated to the U.S.
