Berlin, Germany

Holocaust survivor Margot Friedlander (92) in her private nursing home in Charlottenburg. She was 21 when the Gestapo came for her family. She escaped and remained in hiding in Berlin for 13 months. While hidden, she dyed her black hair a brownish orange and had her nose operated on to disguise her looks. She had to change hiding places frequently to avoid detection and never asked the names of those who hid her, nor where they lived. After emerging from a bomb shelter in April 1944, she was apprehended and sent to the Theresienstadt Concentration Camp in what is now the Czech Republic. It was in Theresienstadt that Friedlander met and married her husband. They were married in a traditional Jewish ceremony after the Russians liberated the camp. A short time later they emigrated to New York.
