The former husband died in 1938 in Switzerland. In October 1939, the family had to move to a collection flat in Sanytrová 12 (today the street is called 17. listopadu). There they lived together with another Jewish family, Otto Passer and Hedviga Passerová. The apartment was located in close proximity to the SS headquarter in the building of the former Faculty of Law of Charles University closed down by the Nazis in 1939.
