Further Information

Ellen Rawson nee Herrman was born in Königsberg, East Prussia in 1922. Ellen, her two brothers and parents lived happily until Adolf Hitler came into power. The change was subtle, but when it became apparent that Jews would face increasing anti Semitism and prejudice in every facet of society, Ellen's parents organised for Ellen to come to England on the Kindertransport. Ellen and her brother Gert were the only survivors of the Herrman family.
