    Biography
    Heinz (now Henry) Straus is the son of Gustav and Sofie Straus. He was born October 30, 1928 in Essen, Germany, where his father was a traveling salesman. Heinz, who was an only child, attended the Israelitische Volkschule, which he entered on April 1, 1935. He also was involved in many social activities at the local synagogue and youth center (Jugendheim). In October 1938 a number of his classmates, who were the children of Polish-born Jews, were expelled to the Polish frontier. Four weeks later Heinz witnessed the burning of the Essen synagogue and youth center during Kristallnacht. The next day, on November 10, 1938, his father was arrested and sent to Dachau. Following his release several weeks later, the family obtained American visas and departed for the U.S. on April 20, 1939.
