Photograph | Photograph Number: 23468

Portrait of Marie Kleinova signed by Alfred Bergel on September 10, 1944.

Caption translation: "This woman lived in Terezin for the three years under the mark Aul-813. Until May 15, 1942 her name was Marie Kleinove. After the war, she and her sister Rudolfa changed their names to Klanova since they did not have a German name. Marie was born on December 3, 1907 as the last child of her father Leopold Klein and her mother Bedriska (Dubska). Since the time she was 15, Marie worked in an office. In her free time she read a lot; she always loved nature above anything else. Since it happened that Marie and Ruda, rather than Erna and Veruska, survived Hitler's reign of terror, it was well that they saved Erna's drawings and diaries and ... notebooks from ... niece Vera Segerova (Frantiska's daughter). The fate prevailed over our wishes. The picture was drawn by a Professor from Vienna.

Used in the DOR pamphlet "Fifty Years Ago: Darkness Before Dawn" (1994).
