Your Neighbor: Eva Schaal

Posted on May 9, 2013

Eva Schaal left Berlin during the Holocaust on the Kindertransport, a rescue mission to get Jewish children out of Nazi Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland and the Free City of Danzig.

Eva Schaal remembers the night Adolf Hitler came to power. She was 11 years old, and was performing on stage when she heard an announcement over the city’s loudspeakers: Hitler had been appointed chancellor of Germany. That night, Schaal saw swastikas all over the streets of Berlin. She vividly remembers seeing soldiers marching in celebration.
