Ellinor (now Eleanor) and Evelyn Perl, twin sisters, were born in Berlin in 1938 to Ernst and Frieda (nee Heimann) Perl. The family fled to Lisbon via Paris and succeeded in sailing to the United States on board the SS Nyassa on May 25, 1941. They settled in New York where the girls attended a pre-school for Jewish refugee children.
