Certificate for changing names, 10 shillings stamp with crown seal embossed on the t.l. corner of the document. Officially changes Liselotte Goldberger's name to Charlotte Goldhill Narrative: Charlotte Urban, originally called Liselotte Goldberger, was born in 1919 in Vienna, Austria. Her parents were Yaakob and Franzi Goldberger. She lived with her family in an apartment on Staudinger Gasse in Brigittenau, which was a mostly-Jewish area. She considered herself more Viennese, and her first language was German. In a statement she says she remembers when the Germans invaded Austria during the Anschluss. One day, she and her mother were ordered out of their building by the SA and forced to scrub the pavement in front of a crowd. Afterwards the commander wrote them a receipt for their work on a piece of cigarette paper. Charlotte kept it until her death. Her father had made it to England, and was working to get her and her mother visa. He was away during the Kristallnacht. They remained safe because their land lady, Frau Grabner, had a son in the Nazi party and would use that to discourage troops from coming into their room. When Charlotte got her papers her mother decided to stay with her family. They parted at the station, and Charlotte never saw her again. It is likely that Franzi was deported to Dachau or directly to Sobibor. Charlotte changed her name to Charlotte Goldhill and later married Joseph Urban.
