Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jewish woman born in 1931 in Wuppertal to a family of Polish origin. Korn and her brother experienced the cruelty of the Nazi regime as small children: they lost their playmates, were expelled from school, suffered from deprivations, and were witnesses of the "Kristallnacht" pogrom. In June 1939 the family, considered stateless, was required to leave Germany. They were smuggled into Belgium by the resistance, and went into hiding after the German occupation. In summer 1942 the children were sent to an orphanage and converted to Christianity. The family survived thanks to the assistance of a Belgian who provided the mother with a fake passport, pretending that she was his wife. After the war the family emigrated to Australia.
