Rachel Dror, who was born in 1921 was raised in a traditional religious family in Königsberg (East Prussia). In 1933 she began encountering discrimination and exclusion as a Jew. In 1936, when she was 16, she went to Hamburg where she received agricultural training to prepare for immigration to Palestine. While in Hamburg she witnessed the “Polenaktion”, the expulsion of 17.000 Polish Jews from Germany.
She finally immigrated to Palestine in 1939. In 1948 she became Israel’s first female police officer. She returned to Germany in 1957; from 1967 to 1969 she studied special education and then worked from 1969 to 1986 in a school for deaf pupils. Now retired, she is active in the Society for Christian-Jewish Cooperation (GfCJZ) and appears in schools as a contemporary witness.
