    Collection Creator
    Ruth Salton
    Ruth Salton was born January 22, 1927, in Berlin, Germany. She was hidden in Warsaw, Poland, by a Polish family at the time of the Nazi invasion in 1939. She escaped to the Russian-occupied region of Poland and was deported to Siberia until 1944. She moved to Stettin, Germany, and joined a kibbutz there and was later active in the Bricha, helping to smuggle Jews across Europe en route to Palestine (Israel).
