Gerda Weissmann Klien
"...And that young American of the day is my husband."
How did she get there?
In 1939, Gerda's brother was deported for forced labor. In June 1942, Gerda's family was deported from the Bielsko ghetto. While her parents were transported to Auschwitz, Gerda was sent to the Gross-Rosen camp system, where for the remainder of the war she performed forced labor in textile factories. Gerda was liberated after a death march, wearing the ski boots her father insisted would help her to survive.
You shouldn't stereotype everyone by their looks, race, gender, or religion. Everyone isn't the same
