Ruth Hartz, nee Ruth Kapp, born in Palestine of German-Jewish parents in 1937, moved with her family to Paris in 1938. Although the family had affidavits for the U.S., their immigration was was disrupted by the American consulate. After the invasion of France 1940, they were sent with other non-French to Colombes, a sports stadium outside of Paris. Her father avoided deportation by joining the French Foreign Legion in Morocco. With the help of the resistance, Ruth and her mother fled to Normandy with false papers, hiding on a farm, then to Toulouse and Arthes near Albi in the French Free Zone, where her father joined them in 1942. She describes the kindness of people in the small towns toward the persecuted, their decency and political thinking but also the willingness of the French police and beauracracy to collaborate with the Nazis. She describes flight, hunger, and painful separation from her parents when she was hidden in a convent in Soréze. After one year, the family reunited and was helped with food and hiding by two generations of a Catholic family, with whom they remain in contact. After the war, the family moved to Paris. Ruth experienced antisemitism in school and later at the Sorbonne and found protection hiding her Jewishness as she had during the war. Joining the Jewish scouts (Les Éclaireurs) and WIZO reinforced her Jewish identity. She immigrated to the U.S. in 1958. Her biography, "Your name is Renee" by Stacy Cretzmeyer, was published in 1994 by Biddle Publishing Co

Arnold Miller served in the 245th Combat Engineers of the United States Third Army in Austria. He went to Ebensee concentration camp, on his own, one day after it was liberated. A Jewish physician, who had served as a camp doctor, showed him the camp and told him about the brutal treatment of the prisoners. Mr. Miller vividly describes what he saw: prisoners who looked like walking skeletons, mass graves, and crematoria. Once the survivors realized he was Jewish, they told him their experiences. Later, he briefly stopped at a work camp for women and relates the testimony of a Russian soldier who had seen atrocities in Dachau and Auschwitz. Mr. Miller mentions his experiences while stationed in the Army of Occupation in Bavaria in 1945. Because he spoke their language, he had several interesting encounters with German citizens

Holocaust testimony of Agnes Adachi : transcript of audiotaped interview by Agnes Adachi( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Agnes Adachi, nee Mandl, was born in Budapest in 1918 into a non-religious family. She attended a Reformed Church School where she received some Hebrew instruction. For safety, just before the Nazi invasion, she was baptised. She worked at the Hotel Ritz and first felt open antisemitism at the end of 1942. Her father was taken by the Hungarian Arrow Cross and his Christian partner in a textile store appropriated the business. She was given asylum by the Swedish Embassy, where Szent-Gyorgyi was also a refugee, and worked there (with 350 other refugees) under Raoul Wallenberg. Wallenberg had her stop wearing the yellow badge, succeeded in the return of her apartment, and issued many hundreds of "Schutzpasses." She describes Wallenberg's wit and daring in dealing with Arrow Cross and German officers. She credits the Swiss Red Cross as well as the Swedish Red Cross for their aid. In 1945, after the war, ended, she was in Sweden, where she worked with Count Bernadotte as a teacher of refugees. She wonders how and why Wallenberg disappeared and deplores the incredulity of some influential people to whom she tried to describe Wallenberg's rescue work
