Oral History | Accession Number: 1999.A.0122.546 | RG Number: RG-50.477.0546

Dina Angress was born Dina Dassberg on October 12, 1928 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands (Holland). Dina and her two younger sisters were raised in an Orthodox Jewish family. In 1939 Dina’s father was called to the front line to serve as a medic. Around October 1941, the Jews were forced to relocate to the Jewish quarter in Amsterdam. Dina and her mother baked fish cakes for the Jews who had been imprisoned; once this became known they were forced into hiding. After the war, Dina was reunited with her family. For a time, Dina worked in a home for children whose parents had been murdered in concentration camps; she also spent some time obtaining her certification to become a maternity nurse. Dina married in 1947 and in 1948, she and her husband moved to the United States
