Beate Hammett überlebte den Holocaust Dank eines Kindertranportes nach England 1939. Ihr Vater dagegen, der Architekt Alexander Beer, verhungerte 1944 im KZ Theresienstadt.  Alexander Beer hatte die Synagoge am Fraenkelufer in Kreuzberg erbaut, die 1938 von den Nazis niedergebrannt wurde und die nun wieder neu entstehen soll.
