History

Lucja was born on October 31, 1909, in Minsk, Poland, to parents Jozef and Rozalia (nee Juszkiewicz) Gerjatowicz.
She completed her nursing education with the Polish Red Cross in 1930 in Lwow (Lviv). From 1930 to 1939, she was enlisted as a nurse in the District Corps No. VI, working at the Lwow Military Hospital in the radiography laboratory.
At the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939, she made her way through Hungary to Parthenay, France, where she worked as a nurse at the temporary hospital beginning in 1940. Later in 1940, she relocated to Dunfermline, Scotland, and resided in various locations in Scotland for the rest of the war. From 1945 to 1947, she was part of the Polish Auxiliary Territorial Services (ATS). Under the auspices of the Polish No. I Corps, she worked in No. 2 Polish General Hospital “Sefa” in Dupplin Castle, Scotland until 1946 and received The War Medal 1939/45 for her service there. Lucja married Henryk (Henry) Zdrojewski in Perth, Scotland, on August 4, 1945. She was released from the ATS Polish Resettlement Corps in 1948 in Edinburgh.
Together with her husband, she immigrated to Canada in 1950, arriving in Halifax on February 8th of that year aboard the Empress of France, and made her way by rail to Winnipeg, where they settled. Lucja received her Canadian citizenship in 1955.
She was active in the Polish community in Winnipeg and was a member of the Polish Canadian Women’s Federation Branch no. 7.
