Born: 1930, Warsaw, Poland
Describes conditions in Ravensbrueck [Interview: 1990]
The Germans invaded Poland in 1939 and established a ghetto in Warsaw in 1940. After her parents were deported, Doris hid with her sister and other relatives. Her sister, seized in a raid, was killed. Doris learned her parents had been killed and witnessed the shooting of an uncle, whose death prompted her grandmother to commit suicide. Doris was smuggled out of the ghetto and lived as a non-Jewish maid and cook, but was ultimately deported to Ravensbrueck concentration camp in Germany.
