Ruth was born Ruth Luise Oppenheimer in Frankurt. As a result of the escalating Anti-Jewish persecution in Germany, Ruth’s parents sent Ruth and her five siblings to England on the Kindertransport in 1939. Up until 1942 Ruth received letters from her parents, but they subsequently died in Auschwitz. Ruth had a long career as a teacher in England. In Germany she was awarded The Cross of the Order of Merit for her Holocaust Education work.
