Ruth H. attended the philanthropist from 1926 to 1936 at Frankfurt. According to her statements, she was planning to make it to the high school and to study chemistry. After the adoption of the Nuremberg Race Act in 1935, she had to recognize however that in the Nazi Germany was no prospect of a study and an academic career for them. Due to that, she finished her schooling with the secondary school leaving Certificate and took a practical profession. First, she graduated from a course at the Jewish domestic science school in Frankfurt, before she moved in April 1937 to London, to become a nurse. When she wanted to visit her parents in Germany in April 1938 after completion of theoretical training, the German authorities moved her passport in Bremen at the exit of the vessel. Thus she could not return to England, to complete her education with an internship. This served them while in the home "Isenburg," to the desired degree that not helped her, however.
