Tonight Gillian will introduce Eva Clarke.
Eva Clarke came into this world at Mauthausen, a notorious Nazi death camp, on 29 April 19Ll5. Had Eva’s mother gone into labour just 2LI hours earlier, her daughter would almost certainly have been killed.However, Eva’s arrival coincided with the collapse of the Third Reich and Hitler’s henchmen fled the camp as the US army approached.
