They managed to escape from Germany just before the war started, leaving behind beloved parents, all to perish in the concentration camps of Auschwitz and Gurs.
Gerda, an only child, was sixteen years old and adored by her parents. Originally from Crossen under Oder, she parted from them at Berlin Railway Station when they put her on a train for England. She would never see them again.
Hans, the youngest of six children, from Lichtenau, was twenty, when his widowed mother managed to get him papers to free him from Dachau Concentration camp, and send him to England. He, too, never saw her again.
This is their story, told in their own words, so that the world might not forget.
