    Abstract: The memoirs begin with the family's deportation from their Berlin apartment on the evening of October 27th, 1941. They were taken to the Lewetzowstrasse synagogue and from there deported to the ghetto of Lodz (Litzmannstadt). Ruth's husband Julius (Ulli) was assigned the position of a transport supervisor, which granted them a small space to themselves. The memoir describes the living conditions, illnesses and deaths in the ghetto. She also recalls religious celebrations and cultural activities. The mass deportation of Jews from Lodz in September 1942 is described. Ruth's son Michael was exampted due to her husband's interventions. Ruth's mother, who was with them in the ghetto, died in 1943. In 1944 the famly was deported to Auschwitz and Stutthof. The living conditions of these camps are described. Ruth was transported to a work camp in Dresden, and was in the city during its destruction in February 1945. After the destruction of the city Ruth was transferred to a series of concentration camps, finally escaping on a death march. She was liberated by American soldiers in May 1945. In 1946 she was reunited with her son Michael, who had survived the Stutthof concentration camp.
