Eva Salier

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


Eva Salier (née Hellendag; 1923 – August 12, 2014) was a survivor of the Nazi Holocaust.[1][2][3] She has written a book about her experience during her enslavement by the Nazis: "The Survival of a Spirit",[4] a summation of the hardships suffered by her [5] small group of "girls" as they were forcibly moved from secret site to secret site where they worked on electronic gear, including sending tubes for the enigma coding machine and V-2 guidance systems. As she tells the story, she worked on the first solid state transistors that would replace the tubes in the guidance system of the V-2. But this has never seen the light of day. The book was also translated into German as Lebensweg einer Koblenzer Jüdin[6] and as Ungebrochen durch die Hölle. [7]

She was also a prolific painter, watercolorist and cartoonist.[citation needed] Her works of art are in the Goodwin Holocaust Museum and many personal collections around the country.

She was born in Germany and emigrated to the United States after World War II, living most of the rest of her life in New Jersey.
