Helene Bergmann was born in Nuremberg on May 25, 1897. She was the daughter of Jewish hops wholesaler Nathan Bergmann and his wife Mina. In educated Jewish circles, girls, too, were given a higher level of education. So Helene attended the Lyzeum, a girls’ school similar to the modern Gymnasium (grammar school). In 1919, she married the merchant Dr. Johannes Roselieb. Their daughter Anneliese was born three years later. In 1934, following her divorce from her first husband, Helene Bergmann moved to Tengstraße 25 in Munich with her parents and her daughter. In 1936 she married Carl Pincus, a merchant ten years older than her who owned a specialty production factory in Nuremberg making sofa cushions and deckchair mattresses. In the rear building at Schellingstraße 107 he ran a wholesale business in blankets, cushions and dolls. When the Gestapo (Secret Police) closed down the business on January 24, 1939 Helene and Carl Pincus lost their livelihood. Helene Bergmann divorced Carl Pincus in 1941 and took her maiden name again. At the end of 1941 she moved to Nibelungenstraße 12 with her daughter Anneliese. From there, the Gestapo deported her to the Theresienstadt ghetto on July 23, 1942. Helene Bergmann was murdered on April 8, 1944. Several of Helene Bergmann’s relatives also did not survive the Shoah. Her mother, Mina Bergmann, was deported to Theresienstadt shortly before her and died there on June 30, 1942. The Gestapo deported Carl Pincus to the Piaski ghetto. The circumstances of his death are still unclear. Anneliese Roselieb was deemed a “half Jew” during the Nazi period and lived until September 1943 with her non-Jewish father in Munich and then in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. In 1946 she emigrated to the USA.(text Elisabeth Rosa M. Noske, editor C. Fritsche, translation C. Hales)
