Holocaust escapee tells her story

Posted on January 20, 2010

A woman who lost 60 members of her family in the Nazi holocaust and escaped from Prague on the last children’s train from the city in 1939 will tell her story at Bridgend’s Holocaust Memorial Day. Renate Collins, who went on to grow up in the South Wales Valleys, lost approximately 60 members of her family in the Holocaust, including her parents Otto and Hilda Kress. She still wears her mother and grandmother’s rings which were smuggled out of a concentration camp in a loaf of bread.
