Suzanne was born in Frankfurt am Main in May 1927. Her parents were ‘proud Germans who happened to be Jewish’, but that didn’t stop them being persecuted by the Nazis forcing them to leave their home and come to England in August 1939. Suzanne considered herself very lucky to have been able to travel with her parents. She believes her grandparents died in Sachsenhausen. Suzanne’s father was interned on the Isle of Man and she herself struggled with being accepted. Arts & crafts helped Suzanne express herself through pottery, sculpture, painting and glass-blowing.
