Shortly after the annexation of Austria by Germany in 1938, the Geiringer family emigrated to Belgium and finally to the Netherlands. In May 1944, the Jewish family was captured by the Nazis, and brought to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi concentration camps. Her father and brother did not survive the ordeal, but she and her mother were freed in 1945 by Soviet troops. They returned to Amsterdam in the Netherlands, where Eva continued her schooling and then studied art history at the University of Amsterdam. In November 1953, her mother Elfriede (1905–1998) married Otto Frank, father of Anne and Margot Frank, both of whom died in 1945.
