Both of my grandmothers were killed in the camps (or en route). My paternal grandfather was beaten by a mob in July 1938 and died of his injuries in August 1938.
One of my aunts lived in Germany all of her life and never left. She was hidden. Both of my parents who were born in Germany, left as refugees in 1939.
What of those Jews who fled to Russia, Sweden or Shanghai?
The classifications may seem simple to some but no to me.
