Summary Memoirs of a Jew born in Lodz in 1933. At the beginning of the war her family fled to Warsaw; in summer 1941 they left the ghetto and went to Ozarow. In November 1941 Winter's parents gave her to a Jewish woman who lived with false documents on the "Aryan side" of Warsaw; she passed the child on to Maria (Maryla) Oraczowa, a Polish woman whom they met on a train. Maryla took her to her home in Lvov, but Winter was soon recognized as a Jew and Maryla arranged other hiding places. Winter's life in hiding was a painful process of changing identity; she became a sincere Catholic in 1943 and an agnostic after the war. She remained with Maryla and her family, even though she was treated like a servant. Finally, she went away to school, married, and in 1969 emigrated to the USA. Her parents and brother perished in the Holocaust. (From the Bibliography of the Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism).
