Short biography
Hertha Feiner was a German Jewish teacher and community leader who lived in Berlin with her two daughters, Inge and Marion Anmus. She was divorced from their father, who was not Jewish. When the girls were ages 11 and 14, she sent them to a private boarding school in Switzerland with the help of her ex-husband, because she feared their future in Nazi Germany. She wrote to them often, but never saw them again. She made desperate attempts to leave Germany herself, but was arrested and deported early in 1943. She killed herself on a mass transport destined for Auschwitz. Her children survived the Holocaust. A series of eloquent letters from Hertha to her daughters was published under the title Vor der Deportation: Briefe an die Töchter, Januar 1939-Dezember 1942 (in English, Before Deportation: Letters from a Mother to Her Daughters) in 1999.
