Jadzia spent the postwar years moving from one camp to another in search of employment, while trying to rebuild her life. She worked as a physician in several camp infirmaries, reconnected with family and friends, began the long process of recovering key documents, and in late 1945, accompanied her friends, the Krzeminskis, on a sightseeing trip through France.
