Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jew (as related to Gammon and Hemker) born in 1907 in Dresden as Johanna Lindner, the daughter of an unmarried Jewish mother who had emigrated from Hungary in 1905. In January 1933 Krause was arrested for attacking an SA man who beat up a Jewish performer in a café; she shouted that Hitler is a murderer, and was accused of insulting the Führer and imprisoned for four months. She was imprisoned again in 1934 because she had no legal papers (her mother had registered her with the municipality as a Hungarian), and was taken by a police officer, Herbert Ossmann, to the Czech border. When she was turned back because she had no passport, Ossmann threw her into the river intending to drown her. She later crawled out and stole back to Dresden, where she lived illegally. In October 1935 she married Max Krause, an artist and a non-Jew. In June 1936 they were arrested for "Rassenschande". When Max refused to divorce his wife, they were imprisoned for eight weeks, but released because her name could not be found in the Jewish community's registry. In the following years Johanna held various jobs and her husband sold paintings. In 1943, in her eighth month of pregnancy, Johanna's boss informed the Gestapo that she was pregnant; she was forced to undergo an abortion and sterilization, after which she was sent to work at a carton factory. The owner, Adolf Bauer, was responsible for her deportation to Ravensbrück in 1944. She survived the death march and was liberated in March 1945. Her mother died in Theresienstadt. After the war, she returned to live with her husband in Dresden. She discovered some years later that the Communist Party secretary was the same Ossmann who had attacked her and tried to drown her. When she made a complaint against him, she suffered antisemitic attacks. The couple were harassed between 1958-60, and imprisoned for short periods on trumped-up charges.

Eventually, the harassment stopped. Max Krause died in 1982 and Johanna died in 2001.
