'The battle has been waged by three generations of the Rosenfelder family. In 1937, as the Nazi persecution of Jews increased, the family abandoned its three-storey house in the German industrial city of Karlsruhe and fled to France. The family was later deported. Edith Rosenfelder escaped but her mother died in Auschwitz in 1942 and her father died in a Red Cross camp in Switzerland in 1945' Guardian.
