One of the last surviving women who lived in the Lodz ghetto founded by Germans for the Jewish population in 1940-1945. Thanks to the charisma and intuition of her mother, who worked as a midwife in the ghetto in the hospital, she survived until the liberation in 1945. In Poland, she graduated from a medical school. Since 1966, Dr. Kape lives in New York.
