Felice Schragenheim (March 9, 1922 - December 31, 1944)

Felice Rahel Schragenheim was a Jewish resistance fighter during World War II. She is known for her tragic love story with Lilly Wust and death during a march from Gross-Rosen concentration camp (today Poland) to Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany or, not later than, March 1945 in Bergen-Belsen. Erica Fischer portrays the story of the relationship between Schragenheim and Wust in the 1999 film Aimée & Jaguar, by director Max Farberbock, and in a book by the same name. It is also the subject of the 1997 documentary Love Story: Berlin 1942. “Felice, I love you! What a feeling it is to be able to say that! Oh, Felice, the nicest fate I could hope for is that of lasting happiness. I want to live with you for a long, a very long time, do you hear? And life is so beautiful, so wonderful. Felice, do you belong to me - without limit? To me only? Please say you do, at least for a very long time to come, please! Do you love me? I'm acting like a seventeen-year-old, aren’t I?” (Lilly to Felice, March 31, 1943)
