His Story:

George Levy Mueller was born in Germany to Max and Lucie Levy. In 1938, George and his family were forced out of their home and forced to live in a “Juden Haus” (Jew House).  On November 9, during Kristallnacht, George’s father and uncle were arrested and taken to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp.  Following Kristallnacht, George and his sister Ursula were sent to Holland, were they lived in a convent until 1943. In 1943, they were deported to the Vught concentration camp, then to Westerbork, and finally to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany.
