About Salomea Bau-Prussak, Dr
Dr Salomea Bau-Prussak was the first woman, Jewish or non-Jewish to receive a doctor's degree at a Polish University. A leading neurologist, her clinical abilities and broad knowledge were widely known in Poland and abroad.
During the Warsaw ghetto months, while active in distributing underground literature, she had sheltered and cared for a fellow doctor, a woman physician, sick with typhus.
She was deported to Treblinka in July 1942 and gassed.
