St.-Annen-Straße 11 - Emilie Isabella Haas

From 1926 on Emilie Isabella Haas, who was single all her life, lived in the Senior’s Home of the Jewish Community on St.-Annen-Straße 11.  At first she lived on the second floor and then in 1934 she moved to the first floor.

Emilie Isabella Haas came into the world on 8 August 1855 in Heinsberg, in what is called the lower Rhine area.

In July 1883 as a 28 year old she moved from Hanover to Schüsselbuden 24 in Lübeck.  She earned her living by working as a sales clerk.  As of this writing, it is not known where she found employment.

In 1894 she found a flat at Mühlenstraße 5, then later Mühlenstraße 33.  These were followed by three further moves:  in 1899 to Schüsselbuden 16, in 1907 to Mühlenstraße 21 and in 1919 to Hüxstraße 43.  Just before her 71st  birthday she moved from Hüxstraße 43 to the Senior’s Home.

On 19 July 1942 she, as an 87 year old individual, was forced to leave Lübeck by means of deportation to the ghetto in Theresienstadt (the present day Terezín, Czech Republic).   She arrived on “Transport VI/2” on 20 July 1942.

Three months after her arrival she died on 27 October 1942.
