Gina Bauer

Catalogue Reference:(JML) Gina Bauer

Gina Bauer was born in Vienna in 1924. This is an extract from a document where she describes her life and the events which brought her to London. Her expectation of having a university education in Vienna has gone - she is working as an apprentice hairdresser. The account ends with the terrible uncertainty regarding whether or not she will see her parents again. Britain declared war on Germany on 3 September 1939, three days before Gina's parents were due to join their daughters.
