Charlotte (Lotte) Friedmann from Breslau #germany

Lotte (Charlotte) Friedmann from Breslau, Germany (now Wroclaw, Poland) came to Scotland in the 1930s and we know that in 1937, she was employed as an ‘English correspondent’  by a company in Aberdeen. She lived at the time with a Mrs Benson. In February 1940, the Aberdeen Press & Journal reported that Lotte Friedmann was convener of the Aberdeen Refugee Centre.  In 1943, there is an account of Lotte giving a political talk to the Aberdeen Housewives' Association.  But what became of Lotte after the war?  Did she stay in the area? Does anyone have any knowledge of this lady?

In 1999, Charlotte Friedmann of Ramat HaSharon in Israel submitted a Page of Testimony to Yad VaShem about her father-in-law, Louis Friedmann from Breslau.  Perhaps Charlotte or someone who knows her may read this posting.
