In 1933 he fled to Amsterdam, but he was arrested in 1943, together with his wife and the two daughters Susanne and Mirjam. They were deported to Westerbork and later to Bergen-Belsen. They were among the few survivors of the "Lost Transport" to Terezín which was liberated by the Red Army after a 13-day-odyssey through Germany. The Kriegs returned to the Netherlands. Hans Krieg made a career as composer, singer, choirmaster and musicologist. He died in Amsterdam 26. November 1961. Mirjam Krieg became a prominent singer.
