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.);

Now I am with my husband in the spa town Bad Reichenhall - gorgeous town lying right in the Alps - where we headed for a few weeks. I take baths for my legs here.

I would very much like to know how you are doing, how you are living, how things are going - please write everything to me in detail. At the same time I send you hearty congratulations on the occasion of your son's marriage. I imagine you in the role of happy grandparents! For now that's it, I'll end here, at the same time I send warm greetings and kisses to my beloved Mrs. Zamorska

[At the side of the page] Warm greeting to Zbyszek and at the same time greetings from my husband.
