INSURANCE STATEMENT


I hereby swear, under importance of eider fed union following insurance at OATH BEFORE: -

I was born on 5 December 1919 in Seelow in Brandenburg. My parents, the merchant Louis Reissner and his wife, Martha Reissner, born Rauschmann, were fully Jewish.

In Easter 1926, I was enrolled in the elementary school in Seelow, because of my good performance after a year was a class of elementary school űberspringenand dungeonselementary school Easter 1929, and then for one year visit to Easter 1930 at the middle school in Seelow.

My parents already wanted me at Easter 1929 already to train the Friedrichs High School in Frankfurt / Oder, Gubener Strasse 13, a humanistic school.  I could, however, because overcrowding warden at that time not taken not. For this reason, my parents left me zunȁchstattend middle school in Seelow to Tues time to admission to wait in the school.

Easter 1930 I was then added to the Friedrichs-Gymnasium in Frankfurt / Oder. Since I French in middle school in Seelow only, but had not had Latin class, I was in the sixth grade. Due to my very good testimony of middle school I was accepted without entrance examination in the sixth grade.

I visited the Friedrichs High School until spring of the 1934 I was in the sub-Daman Tertia.

In all these years I went daily by the school train from Seelow to Frankfurt to class and returned back home again.

After Hitler came to power, the Verhȁltnis the non-Jewish school had deteriorated continuously to us Jews. When I was in the sub-Tertia, moisten the non-Jewish classmates spoke to me again. Very many of the classmates were in the Hitler Youth and came in uniform to school. From that certainly afternoons find gym class we were excluded Jewish children. My class teacher was set particularly anti-Semitic. I was fully overlooked komen about in the last six months by himself in lessons for grant. I was asked no more of him, and has been preserved by him my class work uncensored back again. If we Jewish children ourselves with a question addressed him so dismissed he runs with the words "Go away, Jew" or "be quiet, Jew."

Just before Easter 1934, my parents were in Seelow a letter from the Director of the Friedrich school with the content that I should not come to school. A letter with the same content were also the parents of the other Jewish kids in my class.

So was the intention of my parents to let me go to school until graduation and study me then been undone.

A brother of my mother, Dr Max Rauschmann, was a doctor in Berlin, and it was the wish of my mother to let me have been to medical school, so I could practice this above-named  unmarried uncle.

I had the type of treatment in the school not sustain itself much longer. I went to business school and then stayed until I emigrated in April 1939 in my parents' house, where I helped my father in business.
