Children's Home in Eersel, Holland. They were able to stay there
(at the church) and pretend to
be visiting Dutch Children. Ursula wants a cherry tree
someday! When Holland was taken over
by Germany, the two were taken
to Camp Vught. Officer Etlinger was a mean Nazi
officer at the camp. Joseph van Mackelenbergh (the guy
that helped them get to the church
in Holland) sold stuff at his store for
cheap prices to Officer Etlinger so the
children would stay in nicer barracks. Joseph told the story that
the kid's father was American. Florence was told to look
after the children. George
denied needing her at one
point to save himself. WALTER ZIFFER 12 years old Pelted with stones by fellow
students and called a "stinking
Jew". German officer's took over
the Ziffer's home. Another officer took his wrenches. Met Lydia at the ghetto camp. While at the slave-labor camp,
he was beaten up by other prisoners
for doing too good of a job with his
work. Was a servant to one of
the prison guards. SARAH ENGELBERG Favorite Uncle Naphtali was killed by the Nazis when trying to get food to Sarah's family Sarah's family and her Uncle Isaac's family hid in haystacks. A friend of her mother's found them in the haystacks and eventually let them stay in his attic. Sarah and 14 others stayed
in the attic for 2 years. Those in the attic had to
adjust to walking and
talking again after they
were freed. Mathei Jackel As a 7-year-old, "friends" tried to kill him in a pond. Balked when he was told to shoot a girl who was helping the Nazis. Escaped from the boxcar and fled to the mountains. Joined a group of Partisans, doing things to stop the Nazis. Was taken captive on a boxcar at age 10. Jack Gruener Traveled on a death march from Auschwich to the German border. Lost his bread on the march
while trying to help another
prisoner. Ended up being transferred to
10 different camps. Found a small space at the top
of the apartment building for his
family to live in while in the ghetto.
Loved to read! Remembered how to
save himself when he was sick from
the rich food he was given. Married Luncia Gamzer from
our previous story! :)
