Natalia Abramowicz (1897-1979) lived in Radomsko (Łódzkie Province). In October 1942, she gave shelter in her attic to the Steinlauf and Wygodzki families, who had escaped from the ghetto. This situation lasted around nine months, after which it was agreed that, for the greater safety of those in hiding, Małka Steinlauf, her children Sura and Kalman, and her sister-in-law Pola Wygodzka, would hide in Częstochowa. Małka’s husband, in turn, would stay with Natalia, while Pola’s husband Jakub would find another hiding place in Radomsko. The Steinlaufs’ former domestic helper, Weronika Kalek, took care of the organisation of the new place and transport to it. Unfortunately, the man who was supposed to pick them up from the Częstochowa train station messed up and the whole group was arrested. The Gestapo also reached Natalia, who was also arrested. Małka’s husband Michał managed to escape. Abramowicz was sent to prison, where she was sentenced to death, eventually changed to life imprisonment. As the front was approaching, Natalia and other prisoners were taken to Hamburg and then to Bremen, where she lived to see liberation.
The Yad Vashem Institute honoured Natalia Abramowicz with the title 'Righteous Among the Nations’ on 8 July 1969.
