  • A small house (not far from the town hall), where Basia and Adolf Berman met Celina Lubetkin, Antek Cukierman, Zygmunt Warman, Marek Edelman, Lodzia Borkowska-Zylbersztajn, Henryk Lukrec and Luba Zylberg for the first time after the Warsaw Uprising.

  • The author started to write on 5 January 1944, and the last entry is dated 14 January 1945. The diary was written in ten, common, chequered school notebooks. Written irregularly. Bermanowa probably took a pen in her hand only when she either found the time or when she felt strong enough. Successive entries, dated scrupulously, written in Polish, were written in occupied Warsaw ('in hiding'), then in occupied ('free') capital and in a number of places near Warsaw (again 'on the Aryan papers'). The first event described took place during the Polish-German War of 1939, the latest - three days before the liberation of Warsaw (17 January 1945).
