Lotte Weiss was a remarkable woman, who believed in miracles. Without them she would not have survived.
Lotte was born in Czechoslovakia into a large and loving family. This came to an abrupt end when, in 1942, Lotte was forcibly deported, together with two of her sisters, to Auschwitz.
Tragically, three months later, the rest of her family were also taken, and Lotte, alone, miraculously survived three year’s slave labour in the death camp, from where only a handful returned.
The miracle of surviving, the miracle of meeting her husband and the greatest miracle of all – that of having children and continuing her family – made Lotte strong. Through her open heart, her never-ending good humour and positive attitude to life, she had shaken off the label of ‘ fate unknown’.
She felt compelled to tell her story to the younger generations in the hope that these tragedies will never happen again,
