Ilse Weber, 11 January 1903 – 6 October 1944, née Herlinger, was born in Witkowitz near Mährisch-Ostrau. A Jewish poet, she wrote in German, mainly songs and theater pieces for children. She married Willi Weber in 1930. In 1939, before being forced to move to the Jewish Ghetto in Prague, the Webers managed to send their older son Hanus to live in England. In 1942 she was incarcerated with her husband and younger son Tommy at the Theresienstadt Ghetto/Concentration Camp, where she worked as a nurse at the children’s infirmary. In 1944, she was voluntarily transported to Auschwitz with the children of Theresienstadt and murdered in the gas chambers, along with her son, Tommy. The songs and poems she wrote and performed in Theresienstadt, risking her life to encourage the inmates, are composed and performed by musicians and singers world wide.
