Anneliese Ameli Feibel worked as a 16-year-old nanny for seven months in the Home of the Jewish Women's Association in September 1935.

Anneliese was born in 1919 in Frankfurt am Main. Her father was a commercial agent by profession; the family lived in the Gerviniusstraße 16. Anneliese attended the “Schwarzburg-Reformschule” from 1926 to 1930 in Frankfurt, then St. Elizabeth High School. In 1933, she had to leave this school and switch to the “Philanthropist.” She wanted to finish high school and study, however, due to the persecution and lack of prospects in Germany her parents sent her to the Jewish School of Domestic Science, apparently after graduating from primary school.

After her internship in Neu-Isenburg, Anneliese Feibel went to Munich in April 1936. At the beginning of the year 1937, she found a job as a house maid in the home of Dr. Ludwig Feuchtwanger who was a lawyer. Her employer was the brother of writer Lion Feuchtwanger. After half a year, Anneliese returned to Frankfurt and planned her emigration from here.

Anneliese Feibel succeeded to escape from Germany to England in 1939. Since she had completed no training in Germany, she earned her living as a maid in England for six years. On December 31, 1942, she married an Englishman, but a few years later he was killed as a member of the British army in Germany. Before his death, the couple already had initiated the emigration to the United States, a plan which the widow now had to implement alone.

Anneliese Feibels parents were deported and murdered. Karl Samuel and Nanette (Netty) had apparently fled to France but fell into the clutches of the Nazis. They were deported on May 30, 1944, via the Drancy camp to the concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz.
