Further Information

This passport belonged to Gitta Ogg, Gitta was born in Bratislava in what is now Slovakia, on 30 July 1925, to parents Erwin and Rosalie. Gitta recalls having a happy early childhood, and although the family were Jewish they did not practise the faith. Regardless, Gitta and her family faced increasing danger from Nazism. In light of this, Gitta and her parents were forced to flee for their lives across Europe. They arrived in London in October 1940, and survived the Holocaust. This passport of Gitta’s documents her journey, and is filled with stamps as the family rapidly crossed borders.
