Volume 3: LIFELINES. German-Jewish Family Stories

“…say farewell to this beautiful world.” The Sturm Family of Augsburg (ger./engl.)

The third volume of our LIFELINES. German-Jewish Family Stories series was published entitled “…say farewell to this beautiful world.” The Sturm Family of Augsburg. It tells the story of the Sturm family of Augsburg, the topic of our LIFELINES 2010 eyewitness project, the story of a German-Jewish family that gradually lost its livelihood after the Nazis took power. Only part of the family was able to flee to safe havens abroad. For those left behind the Nazi regime took away all possibilities for a humane way of life. When the order for deportation “to the East” finally came, they resisted by committing suicide. Each family member who emigrated came to grips with his/her experiences during the Nazi era quite individually. Numerous photos and contemporary documents graphically depict the family’s fate and animate to read on.
