Her father was drafted and killed in a Yugoslavian potato field while bringing a comrade water. Alone with her mother and brother they endured being shot at by American planes as she and her brother Karl walked to school, as well as bombings that lasted for seemingly ever,. they were later rounded up by The Nazis and not so kindly placed in the notorious death camp Auschwitz for disposal. to say they were beyond lucky is an understatement as a family friend was able to get them out. Our dear mother suffered from nightmares for the rest of her life from this time.
