My Story

Erich Geiringer manufactured and exported shoes. He also was an active sportsman. Eva was born in Vienna, Austria on May 11, 1929; her older brother Heinz Felix Geiringer was born on July 12, 1926. Shortly after the German annexation of Austria in 1938, the Geiringers decided to flee. Erich left first with Heinz, and Eva and her mother followed a few weeks later in June 1938. They first came to Belgium and after the start of WWII settled in Amsterdam, Holland. They lived near many other émigrés and there Eva met Anne Frank for the first time. In May 1940 Germany invaded Holland and began imposing antisemitic restrictions. All Jewish children had to attend Jewish school. Heinz attended school with Margot Frank. Erich could no longer continue his business and instead began a cottage industry making handbags from snake skins. As their lives became more endangered, Eva's father began to explore how to go into hiding. The underground supplied them with false papers; Eva's alias was Jopie Ackerman. After Heinz received a deportation order to go to a forced labor camp on July 6, 1942, the family decided to hide. Erich felt they would be safer if they divided in two groups, men and women. Mother and Eva went to the home Mrs. Klompe who had prepared a hiding place in her attic with two small rooms. For extra security, several men from the resistance made a tile wall behind the toilet in case of an emergency. Two hours after they completed this construction, German police raided the apartment but not find Eva and her mother.
