Baby doll with articulated limbs attached to the body by elastic thread. Details for hair are carved on the head. Eyes are painted in blue and white, mouth is painted pink. Nose is missing a piece. Red paint or nail polish on the nails and lips. Narrative: Thea Borczuk (now Slawner) is the daughter of Leon Borczuk (b. 1906-02-22) and Anna Blimbaum Borczuk (b. 1910-11-16). Thea was born on May 7, 1939 in Warsaw, Poland. Leon worked as a foreman in a shoe factory in Gdansk, and Anna was employed as a bookkeeper. Thea entered the Warsaw ghetto as an infant. This doll was her only toy and most precious possession while living in the ghetto. The doll had been found by Thea’s father in an abandonned apartment in their building. The Borczuk family remained in the ghetto until the ghetto's liquidation in 1943. A few days before the ghetto uprising, Anna left with her labor detail but did not return in the evening. The following day, another woman brought Thea with her to work. After leaving the ghetto, Thea found her mother, who had assumed a new Christian identity. Thea spent the rest of the war with her mother in Lublin under the false names of Antonia and Teresa Kwasniewska. Leon, who had remained in the ghetto, was sent on a deportation train to Treblinka. He managed, however, to jump from the train. He survived the war hidden in the woods and later in an underground bunker. Leon and Anna were able to maintain intermittent contact by writing to one other at a prearranged address. Thea was liberated in Lublin at the age of five and a half. She and Anna returned to Warsaw following Liberation and reunited with Leon. Thea could only recognize her father by his moustache. Thea started school in Warsaw before leaving with her parents for France. In 1950, the family sailed from Le Havre, France to Canada and settled in Montreal. Though Thea and her parents survived, her grandparents, Abram Blimbaum and Brandla Fajerstejn Blimbaum were both killed in Treblinka. In Montreal, Thea’s own children played with the doll and painted its nails and lips with red nail polish.

Notes
Plastic baby doll with articulated legs and arms. Pink skin colour. Details for hair are engraved on the head and coloured brown. Eyes are coloured blue. Legs are a redder shade of pink while torso and arms' tone is closer to skin colour. Narrative: Donor Marguerite received this doll from her father just before his deportation. She was five years old. Marguerite and her sister left Paris and were taken care in hiding by Catholic farmers in the region of Grenoble, France. they stayed there between 1942 and 1944. Marguerite always kept the doll with her. After the liberation of Paris, the farmer who took care of the girls was accused of being a collaborator and the girls' mother came to get them. On a French train, a French soldier picked up the doll and burned its arm witha cigarette and poked its eye out saying "now it's wounded like the rest of us”. After Marguerite came to Montreal, married and became pregnant, her mother had the doll repaired and sent to her.
