Six weeks later, she celebrated her twenty-first birthday. As a member of the Resistance, Rowinski witnessed firsthand the devastation that World War II brought to Poland. She provided communication services for the Resistance, delivering orders to Resistance leaders. She was captured after the Uprising and spent six months in P.O.W. camps before being liberated.
