EDAD AL MOMENTO

85 years old

All was going fine until Kristallnacht when they broke everything. At that moment, Renate was already in Sweden. They called her names like “Benjamin doesn't have clothes to wear”. In 1936, she stopped going to school. That year, at 14, she left on a transport to Sweden where she would stay until the end of the war. There, she had to work in the fields. She witnessed the bombings in Sweden and she found out that her parents had tried to get to Chile. She married a man 11 years older and they arrived in Chile in 1946. She remembers that she started with nothing and that there, in Sweden, “we only had God”.
