Climate 3, Fogelman Eva

“In 1933 when Hitler came to power, there were a half million Jews
living in Germany. Sixty thousand emigrated during the first two
years of the National Socialist Party’s regime. Germans urged their
Jewish friends to leave, as did some Jewish leaders like Berlin’s
Rabbi Baeck. Those with inside glimpses into the new regime were
particularly adamant. Frieda Suss repeatedly urged her mother’s
Jewish neighbors in Bavaria to leave. Suss was married to an
official with the French embassy in Berlin and knew that Jews were
in terrible danger.” (Fogelman, 27)
