Hanna Ramras was born in Bratislava, Slovakia. When her father died, her mother returned to her home in Aussig, leaving Hanna in an orphanage in Bratislava. When the Germans took the Sudetenland, Hanna was moved to an orphanage near Prague where she was eventually transported to England via airplane. In England, she lived with a foster family and attended a boarding school before reconnecting with a cousin there. After the war, Hanna moved to Brazil where she got married and started a family. Eventually, she and her family moved to Israel where they still reside today.
