Stories Survive: Annelies and Marianne Bernstein
Annelies and Marianne Bernstein were among the 1,700 German Jews in Berlin who survived the Holocaust by posing as non-Jews. Known as “U-boats” in the slang of their time, the sisters hid in plain sight with the help of ingenuity, grit, and luck. Join The Museum of Jewish Heritage to find out how “the Steins” used their new names to secure ration cards and permits for travel and work and how they evaded the Nazi state surveillance apparatus, constantly on the move, frequently unhoused, and doubly vulnerable as women. The storyteller is Dr. Richard Lutjens, who will discuss the sisters’ story and the wider experience of Jews in hiding in Berlin.
