From left: Springfield residents Irene Rehbock, 89, Lore Schneider, 91, and Anne Herrmann, 94, prepare to leave the Yom Ha’Shoah service Sunday night at the JCC in Fairfax. Rehbock was scuttled out of Germany in 1938 aboard the Kindertransport, an organized rescue of nearly 10,000 Jewish children sent from Europe to England in the months leading up to the outbreak of World War II. Schneider’s father was a lawyer and judge for the Nuremburg trials. “We got out of Germany before the war broke out,” she said. Herrmann was born in Nuremburg in 1929 and escaped Germany aboard the kinder train. Her family, however, did not survive the Holocaust.
