This was not only due to the immediate fighting, but also because of the systematic destruction which followed the uprising after it had been suppressed. She herself survived with her mother in a cellar covered by the ruins of the demolished building. For the degree, she submitted two papers, Algebraic Models of Axiomatic Theories and Constructive Theorieswhich together formed a thesis named Algebraic Models of Elementary Theories and their Applications.

In the meantime, Rasiowa had accepted a teaching rasioww in a secondary school.
