Gertrud, Johanna, Lothar, Jenny und Martin

Xenia Taliotis has written this article „The remarkable untold story of the German man who saved a Jewish widow from the Gestapo“ which highlights the story of both our Krausz and Kreyssig families, published in THE TELEGRAPH on 8 May 2021, on the occasion of the end of the war in Europe.

The story of Jenny’s grandmother Gertrud, who was hidden by my grandparents Johanna and Lothar Kreyssig on our farm in Hohenferchesar / Halvelsee between 1944 and 1945 and thus survived the Nazi regime. And the story of the third generation, of Jenny and me. Our friendship was initiated by our parents and is still alive today.
