Susanne Perl 1922-2020

Aug 4, 2020 | JMW News

The Jewish Museum Vienna mourns the loss of an important friend and patron: Susanne Perl, who passed away at the age of 98 in New York. Born on August 9, 1922 in Vienna as the daughter of merchant Max and housewife Elsa Spritzer, she grew up on Jägerstrasse in Brigittenau. During her carefree youth, the Augarten served as her playground and meeting spot. The “Anschluss” brought the lightness of her youthful life to an end. Susanne was fortunate and found a place on a children’s transport. Even at her advanced age she still knew her transport number by heart: 7356. | more
