Wilma Fath was born on October 8, 1913 in Bad Ragaz, Germany. Before she became a guard her life was mostly uneventful. On September 19, 1944 she reported to the Ravensbruck camp to begin her training to be a camp matron. Three weeks later she completed her overseer training and worked as an Aufseherin in Ravensbruck. Soon after her training was completes, Wilma was assigned to oversee a transport of women to the Allendorf subcamp of Buchenwald. She stayed in that post until the Americans closed in on the camp in April 1945 and fled back home. After the war Wilma was netted in a de-Nazification hearing and asked about her role in the two camps. She repeatedly denied participating in the maltreatment of camp inmates and was never prosecuted by the US court.
