ABOVE: 1925: Eve (center), Yerachmiel (her brother), and (probably) her sister Tobe. This photo was taken during Eve's trip from the U.S. back to Poland to visit her family. Note Eve's pants suit and white shoes --"oxfords"? On her US entrance document Eve's occupation was listed as "tailoress," so perhaps she made the pants suit herself (the visible hems look a bit homemade).

ABOVE: Closeup from the photo above of two of Eve's fingerprints, with a date of February 1927. "The unique twirls on Eve’s fingertips provide an oddly intimate image, an eerie artifact of her physical existence." Jonathan Ned Katz, The Daring Life and Dangerous Times of Eve Adams,(Chicago Review Press, May 18, 2021) p. 68.
ABOVE: Two pages from Eve's Polish multi-page passport dated November 27, 1928. Eve mentioned this passport in her letter to Ben Reitman on February 15, 1929, saying that she had stayed in Danzig (now Gdańsk, Poland) longer than she had wanted in order to get it (Katz, Daring Life, p. 106). After the passport expired and was useless to Eve she probably gave it as a memento to Hella Olstein's brother, Georges, who visited the two women in the summer of 1939 (Katz, Daring Life, p. 135).

ABOVE: Eve in Paris, September 1934, photographer and setting unknown. Eve sent this photo to her brother Yerachmiel Zahavy, in Tel Aviv, Israel, and in 1972 he gave it to the Ghetto Fighters' House Archive in Lohamei HaGeta'ot, Israel.

ABOVE: “Eve Zloczower,” as Eve Adams spelled her original Polish surname on a passport photo that she had made in October 1941. The anchor images on Eve’s scarf are fitting, since this photo was for an international steamship trip back to the US for which Eve was yearning. Eve sent this photo to her friend and correspondent Ben Reitman in her four-page letter of September 1, 1941, from Nice, France, imploring him to find a way for her to legally return to the US.

ABOVE: Eve and her companion Hella Olstein, date and place unknown. Since Eve and Hella made several summer visits to Saint-Tropez, in southern France, this may be the locale. Daniel Olstein Collection.
ABOVE: Eve, left, Hella, center, and an unidentified man and woman, date and location. One guess is that the man is Duncan Grinell-Millne and the woman his wife of that time. On April 18, 1934, Eve, in Paris, wrote to Alexander Berkman: “Well to do English friends of mine Mr. and Mrs. Duncan Grinell-Milne, author of 6 novels are looking for a villa in the South. I heard from a friend here that E. G. [Emma Goldman] wants to rent her cottage at St-Tropez for month. I am getting them interested – They are rich people and both charming good friends. . . . They have the most gorgeous town house and I am trying to convince them that they will like the place in spite that there is no bathroom.
