Further Information

This is a professional photograph of Ruth David's maternal aunt Liese. The picture shows Liese as a young girl, and was taken in Mannheim. Ruth's maternal grandparents had started their married life in Mannheim, but later moved. Liese would grow up to dote on her nieces and nephews and be a much loved aunt of Ruth's. Many of the pictures which form part of this collection were taken by Liese, who had been a keen photographer. Facing increasing danger from Nazi persecution of Jewish people, Liese secured passage out of Germany on a domestic worker permit, which saved her life. After the end of the Second World War, Liese remained in England and became a teacher.
