The most amazing Woman: Polish midwife risked her life & delivered 3,000 babies in Auschwitz

 Goran Blazeski

Stanislawa Leszczynska was born on May 8th, 1896, in the Bałuty neighborhood of Lodz, Poland.

She was the oldest of three children of Jan Zambrzycki and his wife Henryka. She completed high school in 1914 and 2 years later she married printer Bronisław Leszczynski.

In 1920, Stanislawa and Bronislaw with their two children Bronisław and Sylwia, moved to Warsaw where she enrolled in the midwife college and completed her studies.

In 1922, they moved back to Lodz where she got a job as a midwife.

There , she gave birth to her second son Stanisław and in 1923 her third son, Henryk was born.

Stanislawa loved her job and was on call day and night, assisting women who delivered their newborns at home, since this had been a usual practice in the past.

She worked in the poorest districts of Lodz and often walked miles to each delivery.

When World War II began, Stanislawa and her husband involved in the Polish resistance movement but eventually, the entire family was caught by the Gestapo in 1943.

Her husband was killed in the Warsaw uprising of 1944, her sons were sent to labor camps in Germany while she and her daughter to Auschwitz, where she spent two years in a non-Jewish sector of the camp.

Stanislawa proclaimed herself as midwife to the camp’s authorities and was relegated to women’s camp maternity ward.

All the newborns of the prisoners in the camp were killed before she arrived in April, 1943.

During her time in Auschwitz, Stanislawa delivered over 3,000 babies.

Half of them were murdered and another thousand died due to the horrific conditions in the camp.

But after 1943, about 500 babies with blonde hair and blue eyes were sent to be raised as Germans, while 30 more survived the camp.

Somehow, she managed to tattoo the children who were about to be adopted by German families hoping that one day they will be reunited with their mothers.

All the 3,000 babies delivered by Stanislawa were born alive, not one single baby was lost during birth. She was called “Mother” by the prisoners.

When World War II was over, Stanislawa returned to her job in Lodz.

All of her children survived the forced labor camps. Stanislawa rarely spoke publicly about her time spent in Auschwitz and never had considered her deeds as heroic or unusual.

She attended an official celebration in 1970 where she met a small group of the surviving babies who had been born in the camp.

Her story is one of the most miraculous accounts from the Holocaust’s history and Stanislawa Leszczynska is being considered for canonization. God bless that woman.

Throughout the Global South, underpaid workers face wage theft and injury to meet Western consumers’ demands.

Note 1: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains months-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

Note 2: If you are Not tri-lingual, you will stumble on Arabic notes, written in Latin characters and with numbers representing vocals Not available in Latin languages.

S’il m’aime, il doit etre capable de reperer les salopes qui me veulent du mal. Leurs regards de le mater, zyeuter et le posseder de loin. Et il me rend folle: il ne se rend pas compte que ca me fait du mal. (les femmes sont plus brutales que les hommes jaloux)

La difference entre L’Enfant desiré et L’Enfant collateral (bil ghalat): La dette d’amour sans fond: substituer le temps consacre a l’enfant par acheter ses desir d’objets de consummation, les plus neufs, les plus cheres.

Bashar of Syria liberated the extremist salafists in May and June 2011, pour faire la place aux demonstrateurs pacifists: Le systeme pensait abattre 2 oiseaux en un seul tir: il mettait plus de poids aux coloniaux que ses voisins: Turkie, Qatar et Saudi Kingdom.

Rania avait vite eu de quoi s’ inquieter: Le pretendant etait un vertueux, pas d’alcool, pas d’avanture, un precheur venue de la campagne, intransigeant et “honnete”. La marieuse dit: “Tous les chameaux ont une bosse: j’en trouverais une”

The exigencies of living lead us to stick to most of our biases and fallacies. We tend to procrastinate acting on our well-intentioned decisions that could correct our ill-conceived methodology to run our life.

As of October 13, 2015. Terror tactics. Live bullets against stones in occupied Palestine. Is it true that more than 1,400 Palestinians have been injured last week by Israeli forces? One girl was shot dead and the Israeli planted a knife by her side to claim that she intended to stab an Israeli.

How would you list the hardest hit States/Nations by climate calamities (Storms, earthquakes, flooding, fires) according to their economic/financial potentials to recover from devastation? 

Just a reminder: over 300 killed in Mogadishu suicide car bombing. At least 3 fold that number were injured, most of them handicapped for life. Can western media cover these calamities with more than 10 seconds?

La lucidite’ amer vaut plus qu’une mediocrite’ dans les illusions: Si on croyait que l’existence est absurde, notre reussite aurait plus de valeur.

La “zabiba” (resin seche’), un durillon sur le front des devots, de frequente prosternations. Ces grand-peres qui marrient les filles de 14 ans.

L’ exil ne suscite plus un tel sentiment intense de perte d’identite’ apres l’emergence d’ Internet. Je fis l’experience.

Medical prof. Philip Salem said: Many of our “leaders” brag of their foreign allegiance. In other States, they are dispatched to prison. Sure, tiny Lebanon was Never in a strong position, but cut out this imbecile bragging.
