    Johanna Gödelmann
    Johanna Cahn-Gödelmann, a nurse, was married to non-Jewish painter Jakob Gödelmann, and worked in Jewish hospital of Mannheim, Germany from 1939-1942. Following the deportation of the other Jewish staff and patients, Cahn-Gödelmann remained behind as the only nurse. Because she was married to a non-Jewish German, she was not deported, but following the closure of the Jewish Hospital in 1942, she lived with relatives of her husband's near Mannheim, until the end of the war.
