Born in 1927, she had been drafted on the 18th August 1944 and so was due to be sent to Germany. The war ended a few days later and she escaped the labour service (Reichsarbeitsdienst).

The team she talked about her fear of being sent to the German Reich and the consequences for her family. She told the warlux project about life under occupation and the liberation by the U.S. troops.

The interview was conducted via phone because of safety and health restrictions due to Covid-19.

We will transcribe the interview and add her story with her name to our data base and use her biography in our analysis of life sequences of the affected people.
