Ruth David didn’t even know what a Jew was when she and her family were shunned by Nazi Germany.

Her parents were eventually murdered at the Auschwitz concentration camp.

David was lucky. She was 4 years old when Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany, but several years later she escaped with other children to England, where she spent most of her life before moving to Ames in 1992 with her husband, Herbert.
