"She died in Theresienstadt in my arms," Betty said in Hamburg in 1955 about her mother Hanna. The entire family had been deported there, but all the others had survived their time in the ghetto.
Betty had been born in Hamburg on Sept. 7, 1888, the second of ten children of the Jewish couple Sally Heimann and Hanna, née Schlesinger. We know nothing about her childhood.
Betty Heimann married Abraham Samuel Bari on August 1, 1913 in Hamburg. He was the second of six children born to the Jewish couple Marcus and Rebecka, née Sauber, in Brody Galicia (small town in the western part of Ukraine) on 10/14/1888. Two more children were born in Brody/Galicia, Mendel Max Bari (born May 22, 1884) and Hene Bruche Bari (born July 31, 1886). Two more children were then born in Hamburg: Levy Leon Bari (born Sept. 12, 1896) and Lea Frieda Bari (born Febr. 11, 1898). Because of their origin in Galicia they were considered Polish citizens.
About the Samuel Bari family there is to report that they lived strictly religiously. The parents paid attention to a kosher and ritual diet. The family lived in great poverty.
The newlyweds Betty and Samuel Bari lived at 12 Roonstrasse in the Hoheluft-West district from 1913 to 1920. Samuel Bari had married into a fairly wealthy family. Three children were born to the young couple at Roonstraße 12: Moses Bari (born August 19, 1914), Manfred Männe Bari (born October 19, 1916) and Fanny Bari (born October 2, 1919).
Samuel Bari participated in WWI as a soldier and lost a leg in front-line combat. He now earned the family's living as a sales representative for cigarette articles, as he entered in the telephone directory. The family lived at Schlump 2a from 1921 to 1924. Here their son Gottschalck Bari (born July 7, 1921) was born, who died in Hamburg on May 21, 1922 and was buried in Langenfelde Cemetery, followed by Sally Bari (born Oct. 16, 1922) and Rebecka Bari (born Febr. 27, 1924).
From 1925 to 1931 the family lived at Bundesstraße 18/Rotherbaum. Other children were born: Sulamit Bari (born July 3, 1925), Magnus Bari (born December 19, 1927) and Mirjam Bari (born February 25, 1929).
In 1932 and 1933, the family lived at Blücherstraße 18. According to the address book, they now operated a grocery store at Blücherstraße 27, with which they then moved their residential and business address first to Bogenstraße 24 and then to Bornstraße 25. The family was now very wealthy. The store flourished, and Jewish and non-Jewish neighbors met there for their daily shopping. Until the mid-1930s, there was not much evidence of the exclusions and harassment of Jews enshrined in law. Samuel Bari and his wife Betty are said to have been very popular.
Betty and Samuel Bari had to move into the "Judenhaus" at Bornstraße 22 on April 28, 1938. While other Jewish businesses had to close by the end of 1938 at the latest, Samuel Bari was officially allowed to continue running the business until 1940 because of his war injury. Then it was sealed.
In October 1938, son Manfred Bari from Bornstraße 25 was taken to Bentschen/Zbaszyn with the so-called Poland Action and interned there until 1939. Manfred Bari managed to return from there to Hamburg and to escape to the USA. The other children fled to Palestine, except for the two youngest.
These, Magnus and Mirjam Bari, stayed with their parents and their grandmother Hanna Heimann in Hamburg. All five were deported to Theresienstadt on July 15, 1942. The Bari family lived in the ghetto.
Hanna Heimann died in the ghetto of Theresienstadt. There is a Stolperstein for her in the street Rutschbahn 11/Rotherbaum. (See www.stolpersteine-hamburg.de.)
Magnus Bari and Mirjam Bari were further deported, among others to the concentration camps Gleiwitz, Oranienburg, Auschwitz and Flossenbürg. Magnus Bari and Mirjam Bari were liberated by the Allies in Pemfling on April 23, 1945, during the "death march" from Flossenbürg concentration camp to Dachau.
Magnus Bari cured pneumonia and other secondary illnesses in Feldafing. Mirjam Bari recovered from her ordeal in the reception camp in Deggendorf.
Samuel and Betty Bari were liberated from Theresienstadt by the Allies on May 8, 1945, and were also taken to the Deggendorf camp, where they met their daughter again. Mirjam Bari remained in the reception camp in Deggendorf until 1947 and then emigrated to Palestine via Italy.
Betty and Samuel Bari left for Israel on the ship "Masdam" via Holland on August 21, 1955. Samuel Bari, weakened from his time in the Theresienstadt ghetto, died in Israel on October 24, 1958. Betty Bari lived after his death in the house of her daughter Schulamith Bari until she died on May 1, 1971 at the age of 82.
