Kaethe Becker

Kaethe Becker (born May 25, 1923 in Saarbruecken or Herrensohr) was a female guard at several Nazi concentration camps during the last months of World War II.

Guarding

On August 9, 1944, she began her training as a camp guard at Flossenbürg near Bayreuth, Germany. Soon after she was assigned to the Baendorf subcamp of Neuengamme, and later she arrived at Neuengamme.

In December 1944, Becker guarded a transport of women prisoners to the Zwodau subcamp of Flossenbürg in Czechoslovakia. As the camp was evacuated she went to another subcamp in Holleischen as an Aufseherin. She fled the camp in early May 1945 and was never captured.
