Beware that presence on these lists does not necessarily mean that any
of these people have survived the war. It does, however, prove that
they have survived until, respectively March and June 1944, that they
had made it to hiding in Warsaw and that they were, within the limits
of circumstances, taken care of by the Zegota for at least a while after
the date by which these lists were drawn. In other words, it does
provide a new last known date and place of whereabout.
