Do You Remember Me?

First Name:


Last Name:



Bronia Wiener was born Braindla Bronka Najmark on December 10, 1932, in Warsaw, to Leib and Malka (née Wald). Her younger brother Israel was born in 1936. The family was quite well to do. They were enjoying a relaxing summer in Legionowo, away from the big city, when Warsaw was occupied and as a result they could not return home. For some time they managed to get by, even without all their belongings in Warsaw. The children helped look for food and smuggled it into the ghetto in Legionowo to which the family was moved, bartering for what they needed for as long as that was possible. At one point, Bronia was arrested in Warsaw and did not return to Legionowo for a whole week. She spent time in the Pawiak Prison (during which time her mother was beside herself with worry) but miraculously managed to escape. Under very difficult conditions, while the family was living in a small room and had insufficient food, her brother Abraham was born. As their situation worsened, Bronia’s father, Leib, tried to return to Warsaw to bring some valuables so that they could survive in the ghetto. They waited for him anxiously but he never returned. They never found out what happened to him. Read more about Bronia Najmark.
