Wersja polska


We know Elżunia only from what she wrote on a slip of paper found in Majdanek after the WW II in a children's shoe. The slip of paper contained the poem and a short note about the author.

The girl wrote that she was nine years old, and she was singing the song to a melody of : "Z popielnika na Wojtusia iskiereczka mruga" [a nursery rhyme].

The note she wrote disappeared. We don't know anything else about Elżunia.
