In the article the issue of process structures in the autobiography of Alice Salomon and a relation between biographical and collective trajectory. Besides the introductory information on the pioneer of social work in Germany herself and her international career in organizations of women's movement in the article the analysis of process structures in her autobiography is presented together with theoretical inspirations, methodological remarks and data on the text. In contrast to the analysis of autobiographical utterances of Rudolph Hoess enclosed in three articles by M.Czyzewski and A.Rokuszewska-Pawelek, which to some extent constituted the pattern of construction of the plot, the analysis of Alice Salomon autobiography allows to notice the situation when the collective trajectory does not absorb individuals but makes them build their own identity by means of biographical projects despite experiencing suffering associated with the collective trajectory. By the comparison of R.Hoess and A.Salomon autobiographies an attempt was made to emphasize the complexity of the German nation's fate of the Nazi period.
