Dear Fredy

Fredy Hirsch was a proud Jew and openly gay man born in Germany. At 19 years old, upon the publication of the Nuremberg Laws, he fled from Germany to the Czech Republic which was later conquered by the Nazis. He began activities in the Czech Republic as a sports teacher and soon became his students’ object of admiration. With the deportation of the Jews to Ghetto Terezin, Fredy was appointed head of the youth department and dealt with more than 4,000 young people. When he arrived in Auschwitz, he persuaded Mengele to set up a daycare center for children and youth and granted some 600 children their final moments of happiness.
