Date of Death/Place of Death-

Berti Giesberg grew up with her parents in Fulda. Her father was a butcher by profession. The family lived in Peter Gasse 17 in 1939. Berti graduated the first four grades of elementary school in Fulda. At the age of 15 she had to leave the Evangelical Lyceum, which she attended, shortly before the end of the 9th grade.

Berti wanted to be trained as a kindergarten teacher, a wish that she could no longer carry out after the forced school dropout. She learned, instead, the white dressmaking. From April 1935 to January 1936, she was a student of private housekeeping school „Institut St. Mariae der Englischen Fräulein“ in Fulda. After that, she worked for about two years in a private home as a nanny.

At the age of 20 years, Berti Giesberg came to the Neu-Isenburg Home of the Jewish Women's Association in as a nanny for three months in April 1939. Afterward, she took on a private job, presumably as a nanny in Wiesbaden. On September 1, 1939, she returned to Fulda to her parents. In the period between September 1939 and May 1940, the Giesberg family fled to Argentina.

As Berti Giesberg arrived in Argentina in early 1940, her father lived in the province Eterios. Berti ran the household for him and also supplied three lodgers, of which she received a modest remuneration.

In July 1940 Berti Giesberg married a farmer named Sajnin. Four children arose from the marriage.
