Margot Kasper (nee Blumenthal) was born in Nordhausen, Germany on March 18, 1902. Before the war, she finished basic schooling in Germany. After the war she worked as a kitchen helper. Of her immediate family, a daughter survived. Her father and mother were killed.
She came to St. Louis in May 1948 because her daughter, Ellen Kesslinger, had come here in 1938 with a children’s transport group. Her daughter was placed with a foster family. Margot has fled to England in February 1939, but her daughter remained safely in the US.
