Posted on October 3, 2020

Nussbaum was born Ruth Rozanski in Offenbach, Germany on Sept. 30, 1920. Following the Kristallnacht pogrom of 1938, her mother managed to get her sister out of Germany on the Kindertransport to England. However, Nussbaum was past the 17-year age limit for the Kindertransport, so with the aid of HIAS( (founded as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society), she made her escape from Nazi German on her own in 1940, with only the clothes on her back.
