Margot was born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, in 1922. Her family was warned not to stay in their apartment the night of November 9, 1938. They hid in the attic during the Kristallnacht pogrom. Soon after, a friend was able to secure work for Margot in England. She never expected the separation from her parents to be permanent. They perished in Auschwitz in 1942. Margot arrived in the U.S. in 1946. She helped create the Hatikvah Holocaust Education & Resource Center of Western Massachusetts in 2001. She has recently come to Omaha to be near her son and his family.
