In 1939, she was 27 years old when on the 1st of September, Nazi Germany invaded Poland. On September 17th, the Soviet Union invaded Poland as well.

He was released in 1962 after 1 year, 9 months and 10 days in prison.

In 1992, when she was 80 years old, on April 29th, riots began in Los Angeles after the "Rodney King" verdict was issued.
