Following the liquidation of the Lomza Ghetto, Nathan and Helen Drew fled Lomza for Warsaw. From November 1942 until the evacuation of Warsaw in the late summer of 1944, they lived as "counterfeit Poles" in the city concealing their Jewish identities.
The above map in Polish and German depicts Warsaw in 1941. On the map, viewers can read about locations Nathan mentions in his memoir and see how they spatially relate to places of Nazi occupation, Jewish life, resistance, and genocide.
