Gertrude Preiss-Spiro and her daughter Sonia helped smuggle my friend Pnina out of the Warsaw Ghetto in 1942 as an infant. We have recently discovered Gertrude owned a tobacco and spirits shop in Warsaw in 1941 and 1942 at 2 Nowiniarska St. She lived with her daughter Sonia at 48 Tamka St.
We just discovered that Gertrude and her daughter Sonia were transported to Auschwitz on 24 August 1943 from the Pawiak prison in Warsaw. We do not know if they survived.
Any information about Gertrude Priess-Spira and her daughter Sonia is greatly appreciated.
