Story of Rescue - Ulatowski Zbigniew

In 1937,  Zbigniew Ulatowski married Zofia Goldfeder, a Jewish girl. The couple lived in Warsaw. When the War broke out, Zofia was fours months’ pregnant.

In September 1940, Zofia’s family – her parents, together with her sister, Maria Goldfeder, and her two children, Katarzyna and Jan – were moved into the ghetto. At that time, Zbigniew was hiding Jacek’s wife and son in Skolimów near Warsaw, and later he helped Maria’s son, Jan, to escape. Jan found shelter in the same hiding-place as Zbigniew’s wife and son.

In the summer of 1942, Zofia and Maria’s were deported to a ghetto. Zbigniew helped Maria and her daughter, Katarzyna, to escape from the ghetto. He took them to Życzyna in the Garwoliński region (Warsaw district), where there was secure shelter. He obtained false documents for them under the name ”Robakowska”, with their first names remaining the same.

After the War, Maria and her children emigrated to Brazil. Zofia andi Zbigniew Ulatowski, togethe rwith their son Jacek, remained in Poland. After the War, they had another two sons, Tomek andi Witek.
