Summary/Abstract: The historian Ruta Sakowska was one of the outstanding employees of the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw (Żydowski Instytut Historyczny, ŻIH), whose research worker she was from 1958 to 2011. Her main interest was in the history of the Jewish population in Warsaw during the Holocaust. While collecting materials for her doctoral thesis about the Warsaw ghetto, she came across Ringelblum’s Archive (ARG) in the ŻIH and then devoted the later years of her life to its editing. During my work on the new ARG inventory the author had the opportunity to cooperate with Doctor Ruta Sakowska and avail himself of her help. Last but not least, she is also to thank for the 1997 commencement of full editing of the ARG documents.
