Clara Jacobi was born on 11 July 1887 in Germau in East Prussia, near Königsberg (now Russkoje, Russia). Very little is known about her life, such as who her husband was or when she moved to Berlin. But records show that on 24 November 1938, Clara Hasche – she had divorced in the meantime – left the Berlin Jewish Community and was baptized a Protestant. It is not known whether she did so for reasons of faith or in the hope of evading persecution. Neither is it known when she became a subtenant of Henriette Vogel, who owned the house where she lived at Charlotten Straße 28 in Lichtenrade. But it was from here that Clara Hasche was deported to Raasiku near Reval (Tallinn) in Estonia on 26 September 1942, along with 1048 others. Only 26 young people, deemed fit to work, survived this transport. All the others, including Clara Hasche, were shot dead in an area of woodland (Kalevi-Liiva) near the village Jägala.
