She met her future husband, Felix, during 1935-1936. In 1938 Sima got a visa for England. She obtained a contract as a nanny and received her British citizenship. Felix was sent to Dachau in 1939 amongst a random group of Jews being sent there at the time. In the same year, Sima somehow got him out and got him a visa for Shanghai. He stayed in Shanghai until 1949 in a Jewish ghetto comprised of refugees. He wrote articles about stamps for a local newspaper. The two were separated for 10 years, at the end of which they met in Israel and were married in 1949. Felix died sometime in the 1990s and Sima died in 1999.
