This album is divided into three sections, reflecting the three parts of the book:
Part 1: A Young Doctor in Occupied Łódź
Part 2: In the Camps
Part 3: Surviving Survival
The album starts with the image that was used to create the book jacket cover. My mother first showed me this 1×2 inch photo in 2000, when we were discussing the postwar years. It is so wrinkled, she must have carried it throughout her postwar travels in Germany. The photo was probably taken for an identity card at one of the early refugee camps where Jadzia stayed.
(239) Photo taken soon after liberation by the U.S. Army Signal Corps (May 1945).
