    Biography
    Greta Fischer grew up in Czechoslovakia, but fled to England at the beginning of the war in 1939. Her parents, who remained in Czechoslovakia, perished in Theresienstadt. Greta spent the war years working in British nurseries. Immediately after the liberation she joined UNRRA and was assigned to Relief Team 182 that established the Kloster Indersdorf DP children's center. Greta left in 1948 to accompany a group of hard-to-place older children traveling from Marseille, France to Toronto, Canada. She settled in Montreal, where she was as a social worker. She died in Israel. Her niece, Lilo Plaschkes, gave Fischer’s collection of materials from Kloster Indersdorf to the Museum in 1992.
