IamA 95 year old survivor of Nazi Germany, I moved to the US at the age of 16 a week before Kristallnacht. Ask Me Anything!
My name is Hanna Hamburger and I am 95 years old. I was born in Eppingen, Germany in 1922. At the age of 14 I was removed from school by the Nazis. I experienced anti-semitism first hand. Right before Kristallnacht, customers of my fathers warned him to leave Germany right away. At the age of 16 I left Germany with my mother and father and arrived in Hoboken, New Jersey the 5th of November, 1938. In 1993 I moved to Nashville, TN to be closer to my family. I have 2 of my grandchildren helping me with this AMA.
Ask Me Anything!
Edit: Thank you for your questions! Hanna goes to bed pretty early so she's going to log off, but her grandchildren will continue to answer some questions!
Edit 2: And we're back! We will try to answer as many questions as possible, so long as our Oma is up for it.
