Fanny Holzinger was born in Windsbach near Ansbach in Central Franconia on November 9, 1913. She was the daughter of the merchant Isidor Holzinger and his wife Jakobine, née Weinschenk. In 1934 she moved to Munich to train as a housekeeper in the children’s home of the Jewish community in Antonienstraße. Following this, she went to Berlin, where she took her examination to become a baby nurse. In 1936 she visited her older brother Lothar Arie in Palestine, but she returned to Berlin after more than a year. From 1938 she lived in Munich again with her cousin Julius Bär and his wife Fanny at Tengstraße 26. In autumn 1938, Fanny Holzinger fell ill with spinal polio and was admitted to the hospital in Schwabing on October 7, 1938. She was not discharged until the end of May 1940 – unable to walk and with partially paralysed arms. She now lived with her parents in a “Jew apartment” at Herzogstraße 65. Isidor and Jakobine Holzinger had moved to Munich after the “Kristallnacht” pogroms of November 9, 1938. Isidor Holzinger had to work as a forced labourer in the Flachsröste (flax factory) Lohhof. It was probably Jakobine Holzinger who looked after their daughter Fanny. In April 1942, the Gestapo (Secret Police) interned the whole family in the so-called “Heimanlage für Juden” (“home facility for Jews”) at Clemens-August-Straße 9. On July 16, 1942 the Gestapo deported Isidor and Jakobine Holzinger to the Theresienstadt ghetto. Fanny Holzinger is also included on the transport list as Number 752. But she never arrived in the Theresienstadt ghetto. The seriously ill young woman probably died during the transport. Her date and place of death are not known. The SS deported Fanny Holzinger’s parents to the Treblinka extermination camp on September 19, 1942. They were murdered immediately upon the arrival of their train there. (text ranz Noweck, editor C.
