 Johanna (Hanna, Hannah) Appel is the daugter of Amalie (Malchen) Appel. Johanna was born in Marburg. At the age of almost two years she came to the 'Heim' of Neu-Isenburg, where she stayed for three month. Where she was unsubscribed to is unknown. 

She was murdered on 10 April 1940 in the 'Landes-Heil- und Pflegeanstalt' Weilmünster. The six- years-old girl was a victim of the National Socialist euthanasia. Johanna Appel is burried on the Jewish part of the 'sanatorium'-cemetary of Weilmünster. A small tombstone is a memory of her.
