Eve Morrison was born in Germany in 1925 and in 1939, her parents decided that life for Jews in Berlin was too dangerous, and they needed to flee. The outbreak of war was imminent, and they could not escape as a family so Eve was sent alone, on a Kindertransport, from Berlin to London. Eve arrived in London in January 1939, a thirteen-year-old girl, who spoke little or no English, with a small suitcase and ten Reichmarks. She was allocated to a foster family in London, and aged fifteen, was sent out to work and learned very quickly how to provide for herself.
Eve worked as a translator for the US Army at the Nuremburg trials and was a secretary to one of the Board Directors of Marks & Spencer. During her lifetime, she regularly donated to charitable causes and her wish was that when she died, a large portion of her money should be given to charitable causes. She supported the Pink Ribbon Foundation with regular donations, including the purchase of the caravan at Manor Park.
