The Fate of Max and Martha Liebermann in the "Third Reich

"Here, the situation has now become unbearable and just as today's conditions were unimaginable, so it is impossible to imagine what may yet happen" wrote Martha Liebermann on October 18, 1941 to Emma Zorn, the wife of the Swedish painter Anders Zorn. On this day, the German Jewess had probably long since suspected that she would not succeed in leaving her home in Berlin in time. One day before her planned deportation to Theresienstadt, she flees to her own death on March 10, 1944.
