His family lived in Bruchsal, but he was born in Karlsruhe at the St. Vincentius-Krankenhaus in Südenstraße at 8:45 a.m.
In a letter to his mother from Amsterdam in 1942 he mentions having stayed at the city orphanage ("Burgerweeshuis"). He went to school at, amongst others, the "Openluchtschool" (open air school) in Amsterdam and was staying with his "onkel Herman" and "tante Leni" van Meekren from 1939 at 116 Stadionkade in Amsterdam South and from 1943 in Amsterdam East (the Jewish Quarter). They had a son Jaap (Jacob) and a daughter Fietje. A letter in 1945 includes an address stamp with "Jacob van Meekren, Oudezijds Achterburgwal 83, Amsterdam".
In 1943 he was employed as an archivist in the financial department of the Jodenraad (Jewish Council).
He was transported to Camp Westerbork on 20th June 1943 where he was a "message boy" and from there he was deported to Bergen Belsen on the 11th January 1944. According to documentation in Wannsee, he died in Bergen Belsen concentration camp, but he actually survived Bergen Belsen.
On or about 10th April 1945, he and 2000 others were put on transport and were shunted around northern Germany between the 2 fronts for over a fortnight. They finally stopped in Trobitz near Leipzig and were liberated by the Russians. Many of the prisoners were weak and sick and many died during the transport or shortly after being liberated. Hans died after contracting Typhoid ("Flecktyphus").
His name is inscribed on the memorial wall of the Hollandse Schouwburg in Amsterdam.
