    Hana Fuchs (nee Krasa) is the daughter of Oskar and Rosa Fuchs. She was born in Prague on September 23, 1923. She had one brother, Jiri (George) April 4, 1941. Before the war, Oskar worked as a chemist and CEO of a major food corporation, IDKOLEIK. The family was totally assimilated. Hana attended a public grammar school and then a private gymnasium until the laws forbidding Jews from attending public schools banned her from attending. She then was taught by private tutors. Hana spoke fluent German since her parents believed that all educated people should speak at least two languages. Hana was deported to Theresienstadt in July 1942 and was given work splitting mica. This was very difficult work and she was then transferred to work in the German vegetable gardens outside the garrison walls. Although the workers were watched very carefully, Hana often would simply eat ripe food in the fields. Here older brother also was sent to Theresienstadt and worked in the bread bakery, which also allowed him to get extra food for himself and the family. Hana's grandmother also came to Theresienstadt in June but she lasted only six weeks and died of dysentery on August 26, 1942. She was liberated from Theresienstadt by the Soviet Army in May 1945 and returned to Prague where she met and married her husband, Edgar. In 1950 they left Czechoslovakia illegally and immigrated to Israel. In 1962, they immigrated to the United States. Hana died on April 13, 2015.
