A WWII Heroine Has Passed Away

Mimi Reinhardt, the woman who wrote down lists of Jews who worked for Oskar Schindler, has passed away at the age of 107.

The woman who drew up lists of people for the German industrialist Oskar Schindler that helped save hundreds of Jews during the Holocaust has died.

Mimi Reinhardt, who was employed as Schindler’s secretary, was in charge of drawing up the lists of Jewish workers from the ghetto of the Polish city of Kraków who were recruited to work at his factory, saving them from deportation to Nazi death camps.

“My grandmother, so dear and so unique, passed away at the age of 107. Rest in peace,” Reinhardt’s granddaughter Nina wrote in a message to relatives.

Austrian-born Reinhardt, who was also Jewish, was recruited by Schindler himself and worked for him until 1945.

She was a true heroine in every sense of the word. May Mimi’s memory be a blessing.
