Name Manfred Lewin
Date of Birth September 8, 1922 Place of Birth Berlin, Germany
Manfred Lewin lived in Berlin with his parents and four siblings in a predominantly Jewish section of the city. During the Third Reich, the family lived in poverty in a three small rooms, not far from the home of Gad Beck at Dragoner Strasse 43. Manfred's father was a barber and his mother was a former secretary. She took care of the family, and she often had to find other sources of food to supplement the family's insufficient Jewish food ration cards.

Manfred joined the Hehalutz Zionist youth movement in Berlin, and together with Gad Beck, who became his boyfriend, took part in activities at the Youth Aliyah school run by Jizchak Schwersenz. Manfred, his sister Caecilie and his parents Arthur and Jenny, along with 976 other Jews were deported on the nr. 23 transport to Auschwitz-Birkenau on November 11, 1942 where all of them were murdered.
