Synopsis

Fewer than half of all the German Jews, who were discriminated against, persecuted, and eventually murdered by the Nazis, were able to save themselves by fleeing abroad. Sadly, a large number, deeply rooted in German culture, were unwilling or unable to emigrate; after "Kristallnacht", the pogrom of 1938, the bureaucratic and financial obstacles to emigration became nearly insurmountable. This is the story of one family's desperate attempts to emigrate from Hitler's Germany. The Fruhaufs experienced endless bureaucratic chicanery and faced enormous difficulties with the German and foreign authorities and government agencies in their efforts to take advantage of matriarch Hilda Fruhauf's us citizenship. At the mercy of the greed of various agencies and shippers, they became more and more entangled in "a labyrinth of red tape". The Fruhaufs' daughter was forced into hiding in 1943, fleeing from the Nazis to Belgium, where she was given protection by the Resistance. Miraculously, she survived. The remaining members of her immediate family were unable to secure permission to emigrate, and were killed by the Nazis. This story, first published in Germany as part of S.
