Eyewitness to History: Esther Starobin

Esther Starobin was born in Adelsheim, Germany, in 1937. When she was just two years old, Esther’s parents sent her and her three older sisters to England on Kindertransports. Esther spent the next eight years with a foster family, largely unaware of what was happening to her parents and brother, who had remained behind in Germany.
