The ‘Bride of Belsen’ dies at 95
before being taken by cattle train to Belsen, where she nursed Anne Frank, famed for her diaries, as the 15-year-old lay dying of typhus.
She married Norman Turgel six months after he freed her.
They then moved to north London. Her wedding dress, made from British Army parachute silk, is on display at London’s Imperial War Museum.
The Holocaust Educational Trust said she “tirelessly” shared her story so the “Holocaust’s horrors are never forgotten”.
It added: “A shining light has gone out of our lives and it will never be replaced.”
