Inge Deutschkron

As Jews, Inge Deutschkron (*1922) and her mother wanted to flee Berlin, but the outbreak of the Second World War made this impossible. From 1941 to 1943, her work in the Otto Weidt Workshop for the Blind offered her a measure of protection against deportation. From that point until the liberation, she survived in the underground. After the war, she worked as a journalist and author, reporting, for example, from 1963 on the Auschwitz trials in Frankfurt for the Israeli newspaper Maariv. Disappointed over the enduring antisemitism in Germany and the anti-Jewish bias of the 1968 movement, Inge Deutschkron left West Germany for Israel in 1972. In 2001 she returned to Berlin, where she currently lives.
