She also writes about living in the Ringlikon refugee camp and being transferred to girls' camps in Fribourg, Neuchatel, Lucerne, and Montreux. In 1947 Edith went to work for a Jewish refugee organization in Zurich and received an affidavit from Mr. Bulova, president of the watch company, to immigrate to the United States in 1953.
