From Freedom To Betrayal

Simon Interviews Eva Schloss

Read Also The Bystander
Eva Geiringer was born in Austria, and shortly after the annexation of Austria by Germany in 1938, her family emigrated to Belgium and finally to the Netherlands. While there, she lived in the same apartment block as Anne Frank, and the girls, only a month apart in age, were sometimes playmates from ages 11 to 13, at which time both went into hiding from the Nazis. In May 1944, the Jewish family was captured by the Nazis, and transported to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi concentration camps. Her father and brother did not survive the ordeal, but she and her mother were freed in 1945 by Soviet troops. They returned to Amsterdam in the Netherlands, and during this time, she and her mother renewed their friendship with Otto Frank, who was at that time contending with the loss of his wife and children, and the discovery of his daughter Anne's diary. Eva continued her schooling and then studied art history at the University of Amsterdam. She then traveled to England to study photography for a year. While there, she met and married Zvi Schloss, a Jewish refugee from Germany who had been living in Israel, and the couple subsequently settled in England.
