Rita Prigmore was born on 3rd March 1943 in Wuerzburg, Germany, together with her twin sister Rolanda, into a Sinti (Gypsy) family.
This poster shows a soldier by the name of Kurt Winterstein. Kurt was one of Adolf Hitler’s personal drivers, but when the Nazis discovered that his mother was a “Gypsy” Kurt was removed from the army and forcibly sterilized. Kurt is a relative of Rita Prigmore, whose story is relayed in the accompanying postcard.
