DENTAL TECHNITION DORIS VON KNOBLOCK AGE 20 FIRST GENERAL DISPENSARY DAMSTADT GERMANY
Frankfurt, Germany, October, 1947:
Doris von Knoblock was a 20 year-old dental technician at the 1st General Dispensary in Darmstadt,
She was discovered as a stowaway in a U.S.-bound crate at the Rhine-Main airport mailing herself to a man in New York city.
Knoblock who was described as “scantily clad,” had no idea what she was doing in her efforts to steal a ride.
If left in the crate undiscovered with near freezing temperatures, she would have died in the cargo hold of a New York bound flight if she hadn’t been caught
The would-be recipient of the crate whose name is written on a piece of paper was a survivor of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp living in New York who said Knoblock was her fiance.
After World War I, the first concentration camp went up in 1932 starting the same pattern of war sorcery that led to events in 1914,
Sachsenhausen-Oranienburg was one of those camps.
A typical Nazi concentration camp in Oranienburg, Germany, Sachscenchausen was used for political prisoners from 1936 to the end of the Third Reich in May 1945.
