I have just adopted the name Elisa Gonny Elsas. She was born on 28 August 1927 in Baarn, and died on 27 November 1942 in Auschwitz. She was 15 when she died. I didn’t know of her existence, but she was about the same age as my parents, who did survive the war. How different lives can turn out. It is important to me that her name is mentioned: Elisa Elsas. She lived and her life had meaning. What was her upbringing like here in the now so peaceful Baarn? Where did she live and what was her family like? Who knows, maybe more can be discovered about her today, almost 70 years later.
