About “Escape to Auschwitz.
In 2004, and a cache of letters was found when our parents house was cleared in preparation for sale. Ilse, our mother, had kept them safe for 50 years, never mentioning them nor telling their story. Hulda, her mother Gisela and daughter Ilse, all born into a Viennese Jewish family, were caught up in the tragedy of Hitler’s Europe. The three women, bound together by a love that flows through the letters, were physically torn apart by the racist politics of the 1930s and 40s. Ending up in three different countries, they tried to keep hope alive through their letters to each other. Ilse survived, the two older women did not. Gisela was deported to Riga in Latvia and died. Hulda was deported to Auschwitz and died there. This is their story, told mainly through Hulda’s letters.
