CHANA AVRUTSKY

As a child of eleven, Mrs.
Avrutsky, now a resident
of Israel, escaped the
Warsaw Ghetto by pre-
senting herself as a
Polish orphan to a Roman
Catholic convent in
the city. Taken in
by the nuns, she

began her religious educa-
tion, and when the convent
moved to Zakopane in
1944, she went with it. In
both locations, she served
as a courier for the nuns'
religious leader, Fr.
Karol Wojtyla, now
Pope John Paul II.

A short film of Chana's 1989 reunion with the mother superior and nuns in the
Zakopane convent, their first meeting since the end of the war, will be shown.

MARIA PIEHNIK

A hidden child survivor now
living in Michigan, Mrs.
Gorman will speak for the
Hidden Children of Michigan
on "Who Are the Hidden
Children?"

She and her parents hid a Jewish
family of five, saving them from
the Nazis. The Piehnik family, farm-
ers from Grybow, Poland, dis-
played extraordinary courage in
hiding the family which included a
three-month-old baby.
