Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jew born in 1928 in Hannover. Her father, Samuel Herskovits, was secretary of the local Jewish community and in the 1930s had to carry out bureaucratic tasks for the Nazis. After the "Kristallnacht" pogrom, Ruth and her twin sister Eva were sent to Holland with a "Kindertransport". An elder sister emigrated to England; another sister, who lived in a home for the disabled, was a victim of the euthanasia program. Their mother died during an operation in 1939. In fall 1941 the twins returned to Hannover in order to emigrate with their father, but the plan failed. Samuel Herskovits was forced by the Gestapo to compile a list of 1,000 Jews to be deported to Riga. In 1943 the father and twins were deported to Theresienstadt and then to Auschwitz, where the father was killed. The twins were taken for medical experiments by Mengele, and later for forced labor. In November 1944 they were evacuated to Gross-Rosen and then to Neuengamme, where they were liberated. After the war Ruth emigrated to the USA.
