This is a story of Life, Persecution, Emigration and Survival
It has become visible through the documents of Suse MERZBACH
At age 15 - 16, her mother already dead, her father in Concentration Camp, Suse persevered through all the necessary steps, and got permission to leave for Chile

The second World War had already started - the last documents are dated January, 1940, 4 months into World War II !

The following are Documents from Roberto BRUNSCHWIG archives
