11-year-old Edith Michel arrived in Leeds with her younger sister Irmgard – both found safe havens with Jewish families. Born in Kaiserslautern on May 13, 1928, she grew up in a little village, population of around 200, of whom only 20 were Jewish. Edith was one of the Holocaust Survivors’ Friendship Association’s greatest supporters. It was only in the past five years that she began to speak in schools, to children who were the same age as she was when she left her homeland.
