Abstract:

Traces the fate of Esther Cohn, who was born in 1926 in Offenburg, Germany. At the age of four Esther contracted polio, and her left arm and leg remained paralyzed. With the rise of the Nazi regime, the situation of the Cohn family deteriorated. During the "Kristallnacht" pogrom, Eduard Cohn was deported to Dachau and forced to leave Germany within six months. He fled to England and prepared for the arrival of his family, but after the outbreak of World War II this was impossible. Sylvia Cohn moved to München with her three daughters, and Esther moved into the Jewish children's home Antonienheim because of her disability. In July 1942 she was deported to Theresienstadt, and in October 1944 she was killed in Auschwitz. Sylvia Cohn had returned with her two younger daughters to Offenburg, but they were deported in October 1940 to Gurs. The two girls managed to escape to Switzerland with the assistance of the OSE, and after the war joined their father in England. Sylvia Cohn was deported via Drancy to Auschwitz in 1942 and killed there. Includes excerpts of letters and poems written by Sylvia Cohn, as well as the diary of Esther Cohn.
