What concerned her most was that they were talking about the Holocaust, as if it were just another history topic to cover once and then check off the list.

Wiosną 1942 roku Teresa Prekerowa mieszkała w Warszawie – w tym czasie sama, gdyż jej rodzice opuścili miasto. Pewnego dnia wracała wieczorem do domu i zobaczyła na ulicy małą żydowską dziewczynkę. Zabrała ją do domu, przez tydzień opiekowała się nią, a po tygodniu poszła z nią do zakonu Nazaretanek, o których widziała, że prowadzą ochronkę i na pewno zaopiekują się dzieckiem. Prekerowa znała ten zakon jeszcze sprzed wojny, kiedy chodziła do prywatnej szkoły prowadzonej przez zakonnice.

Stella obserwowała walkę swojego ojca, będącego żydowskim policjantem, o utrzymanie przy życiu swojej rodziny. Do jego obowiązków jako policjanta należało, m.in. zabieranie z ulic zwłok zmarłych Żydów. I kiedy umarł dziadek Stelii, a ojciec jej ojca, to był on prawdziwie szczęśliwy, że nie musi zbierać jego zwłok z ulicy i, że ojciec umarł naturalną śmiercią. Stella usłyszała takie zdanie z ust ojca i byłą tym strasznie zszokowana.
