Update on Eva Edit Weinberger

The post After Many Years gave the story of Eva Edit Weinberger, a little Hungarian girl gassed in Auschwitz in June 1944, at age 6. It was based on Judith Kalman’s Nazi War-Crime Trial Testimony presented at the trial of Oskar Gröning, the bookkeeper of Auschwitz.

Judith Kalman made on July 8 a final statement for the Trial of Oskar Gröning.

The article Ein Leben, aus dem Tod geboren, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, May 6, 2015, gave an uncropped image of the photograph of Eva at age 4; I reproduce it here:

Most of Eva’s family had been caught in a Nazi raid and sent to die in Auschwitz. Zsuzsa Rochlitz was the only family member caught in that roundup who returned alive after the war. Judith Kalman has added to her Nazi War-Crime Trial Testimony a photograph of Zsuzsa with Eva as a baby:
