Story of Rescue - Cajtag Aleksandra

During the Nazi occupation Aleksandra Cajtag lived in Krzemieniec at 15 Tunicka Street. At the end of 1942,  her house became a shelter for 7 Jews who had managed to escape from a ghetto: Jan Kot, Tola Kapłan, Zofia Kahan, Czacki, Alpiński (vel Alernand) and two other people. At first, they hid in a separate room, and then in a shelter which they dug under the room.
