JACEK STĘPIŃSKI, ALEKSANDER MUSIAŁOWSKI
Irena’s name was Ida Englard, then Kisilewska. After the war, when she married a communist, it was Irena Majchrzak. When at the age of 15 she left the Ghetto, her father told her: “Itele, never forget that you’re a Jew.” Her uncle standing right next to him said something else: “No, the other way around. You must forget or you won’t survive.” Those were the two precepts she was following through her entire life.
