"A few of the women were getting together, and they said we'd like to form a club, a junior league club, and the women were very friendly with each other. Many of them were at szkuka which means Polish Saturday school for culture and education and language. At any rate, Mother was with some of these friends and they said oh we - we, let's make a club, let's make a junior league club. During that time, all of a sudden on September 1st Hitler bombed Poland and all these women, of whom I spoke a moment ago, these women called each other up and they said quick we must definitely form the club after today to send packages, money, relief, help to the people in Poland. And eventually they had the first meeting, but my mother she missed that meeting. But she came, whatever X number of months later. She was quite involved with the club. They sent ambulances, they assisted the Red Cross, they sent money, they formed a school for the blind, they did things in Poland, in France, in England, in Italy to help the Polish citizens no matter what their really religion or ethnic orientation, background was, they were out their to help them.
