Frieda Fritzshall, 91, Dies; Survived to Create a Holocaust Museum

Sent to Auschwitz as a girl, she settled in Chicago after the war and vowed not to let the world forget the atrocities. The museum, in Skokie, Ill., bears witness.

Frieda Fritzshall, who not only survived the Holocaust but established a museum outside Chicago to keep the memory of it alive for future generations so history would not repeat itself, died on June 19 in Deerfield, Ill. She was 91.

Mrs. Fritzshall was a 13-year-old Jew in Czechoslovakia when she, her mother and two brothers were herded into a ghetto on the last day of Passover in the spring of 1944 by Nazi occupiers. — Source
