This thesis on algebraic rasiowz initiated her career contributing to the Lwow-Warsaw school of logic: She exhibited many different skills and interests, from music to business management and the most important of her interests, mathematics. Inthe time was not very opportune for entering a university.

Rasiowa’s thesis burned with the whole house. That is where she met Andrzej Mostowski and came back to the University. Rasiowa had to interrupt her studies, as no legal education was possible in Poland after She worked in the foundations of mathematics and algebraic logic. 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.

The Rasiowa family fled also, as most high-ranking administration officials and members of the government were being evacuated to Romania. Rasiowa became strongly influenced by Polish logicians. Helena’s father was a railway specialist.
