19 December 2012 Jacqueline Morgenstern Jacqueline was born in 1932 in the town of Czernowitz , Romania. Thirteen year-old Jacqueline and her friends were then hung one by one. On April 20, 1945, all 20 children were brought to a school in Hamburg. They were injected with morphine and fell asleep. 1932-1945 Jacqueline and the rest of the children were injected with tuberculosis cultures. In January 1945, Dr. Heissmeyer decided to operate on the children. He wanted to find out how their glands had reacted to the TB infection. In the fall of 1944, Dr. Kurt Heissmeyer, the doctor who had requested the children for experimentation, had them transferred to the Neuengamme concentration camp. After her mother's death, Jacqueline was sent to a special children's barrack. The 20 children in these barracks were being held for use in experiments. Jackie and her parents Karl and Suzanne moved to Paris, France to escape antisemitism of Rumania shortly after her birth. Her father and uncle owned a beauty shop in the center of the city. On June 20, 1944, Jacqueline and her parents were deported to the Auschwitz death camp. Jacqueline and her mother were sent to the women's camp while her father was left in Auschwitz. Jacqueline's mother became weak because she gave most of her food to her daughter. After she fell ill, her mother was murdered in the gas chamber. The barracks were heated and the children were provided with decent food and played games with the staff to distract them from the smells of the crematoria.
