Oral history interview with Holocaust survivor Della Krieger. Krieger was born in 1920 in Dresden, Germany. Her mother died when she was born and her father was frequently away on business, so much of her childhood was spent with her elder brother and the family's housekeeper. When she was in middle school, Krieger met her friend Puppe, a Christian girl. Although Puppe was a member of the Hitler Youth, the two girls were good friends. They were separated by the war, but eventually managed to get back into contact. A seamstress by trade, Krieger immigrated to the United States in 1938, where she met her husband, Hans Krieger, and married him in 1946. Her husband was also a Holocaust survivor, who escaped on a Kindertransport, came to the United States, and eventually liberated a concentration camp.
Interview conducted November 23, 2010.
