Walter Susskind, an underground operative in the Netherlands, with his daughter Yvonne.
Photographed in Amsterdam in 1942.
Susskind was born in Germany on October 29, 1906. He was a member of the Joodse Raad and dealt with the registration of the Jews who came to the assembly point at the "Jewish Theater" in Amsterdam, from whence they were subsequently deported. He took part in the rescue of children from De Creche, the children's home located opposite the theater. Susskind was deported to the Terezin (Theresienstadt) ghetto, and sent from there on a transport to the Auschwitz camp. He died there after the camp's liberation, on February 28, 1945. Close
