Jill Pauly was born Gisella Berg on May 1, 1933 in Cologne, Germany to a close, religious Jewish family. Due to the restrictions put in place by the Nazis shortly before she was born, Jill was unable to play outside with other children, and found herself in a life of displacement. Her childhood home was ransacked, and her father and cousin were forced into an internment camp after attempting to escape the country. Eventually her family found refuge in Kenya, where they worked on farms and navigated British East African policies. It wasn’t until 1947 that her family moved to the United States, where Jill married fellow survivor Kurt Pauly in 1957. Join the Museum for a program exploring Jill’s experience during the Holocaust, and her years in Kenya.
