Chapter Summary

Alfred Klee possessed unusual oratorical abilities, which he devoted to advocating the implementation of Herzl's program of "conquering the [ Jewish] communities" and winning them over to the Zionist cause. Hans Goslar, a committed Social Democrat, served as Press Chief of the Prussian state government and as advisor to the Prussian Minister of Domestic Affairs as a Ministerialrat until his dismissal in 1933. The efforts to secure the emigration of the Klees and the Goslars from Holland took on added urgency after both families were deported on 20 June 1943, along with the other Jews of South Amsterdam, to the concentration camp of Westerbork. Bergen Belsen was liberated by the British army on 15 April 1945. Eugenie hoped that more such trains from Bergen Belsen would be found, but no trace of either Theresa Klee or Hans Goslar was encountered.
