Mother who escaped Nazi Germany

Posted on January 28, 2022

Tim Locke’s mother, Ruth Neumeyer, grew up in the German town of Dachau with her parents and brother Raymond. Despite not following the Jewish faith, several of Ruth’s relatives were Jewish, meaning under the Nazi’s Nuremberg laws she and her family were classified as second-class citizens.

Ruth and Raymond escaped Germany to the UK on the Kindertransport (German for children’s transport), which was an organised rescue effort of children from Nazi-controlled territory during World War Two.
