"The Gestapo came for Lotte Schloss in October 1942 in Berlin; she was to join her parents in a "resettlement" to the "East." Realizing that to comply would likely prove fatal, she escaped with the help of her future husband, Herbert Strauss. After months in hiding, she reached Switzerland in May of 1943 and was reunited with Herbert."--Jacket.
