Before the war Abram alias Avram Cohn (born on 20 September 1904 in Corni, Romania), his wife Gittel Eisner (born on 14 February 1909 in Dobromil, Poland) and their daughter Deborah live in the Netherlands. Abram and Gittel then divorce. On 14 May 1941 Gittel marries Josef Reiter (born on 2 December 1905 in Dombrowa, Poland) in The Hague, the Netherlands. In late 1942 or early 1943 Josef and Gittel flee to Belgium. They settle at Posschierstraat 9 in Etterbeek, Brussels, under the false Flemish name Dierckx. Josef and Gittel are identified and arrested in May 1943, after which they are transferred to the Dossin barracks in Mechelen. Neither survives deportation to Auschwitz-Birkenau via Transport XXI on 31 July 1943.
