I had a dear friend who survived the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. She was brave enough to return from Russia whence she had escaped to – to fight in the Polish underground against the Nazis.

I recall asking her in 1978 why she kept the Polish name she used in the underground. She told me that – everything about her that was a Jew before the war died when her husband and children were slaughtered by the Germans.

She also told me – years later – she couldn’t be a Jew, again, watching Israel treating Palestinians the way Nazis treated Poles.
