Charlotte (Lotte) Alterthum is the daughter of Siegfried and Therese Alterthum, née Loose. She had two brothers who escaped from Germany in time and survived the Shoah. Charlotte Alterthum spent three months in the summer of 1938 at the "Heim Isenburg". She worked probably here as a nursery nurse. By profession, she was a pulmonologist, but was not allowed to exercise this after the National Socialist seizure of power. During the Weimar Republic from 1926 to 1929, she had worked as assistant physician in the tuberculosis department of the municipal hospitals Königsberg. In 1933 she moved to the sanatorium Berlin-Wittenau, but was later released on the basis of the "Gesetz zur Wiederherstellung des Berufsbeamtentums (Law on the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service)" of 7 April 1933. From Neu-Isenburg she returned to Berlin. From there she was deported to the ghetto Minsk on November 14, 1941, where her trace is lost.
