We have copies of four letters that Rena wrote about her rescue in Poland. One is two typed pages, dated 28 Sep 1945, and is addressed to Henryk Birencwajg, the Director of the Polin Museum, which published the story above. Rena is trying to get in touch with Zamorski.

I guess it worked, because two years later she began a correspondence with Stanislaw Zamorski.

There are three hand-written letters to Stanislaw Zamorsky which are dated:
29 Aug 1947 (4 pages; signed Irena, which was the name she assumed while the Zamorski family hid her.);
1 Dec 1947 (4 pages);
2 Feb 1948 (3 pages).
