Kurt eventually came back for Gerda and the two traveled to Paris, France. On June 18, 1946, Gerda and Kurt Klein exchanged their vows. (Klein, 247) This came nearly a year after Gerda had been liberated in Volary and Kurt had opened the door for her. The two had their honeymoon in Europe and then in August the two travelled through London to the United States. This was the first time that Gerda had been to the United States and she states in interviews that it was the most beautiful site to see New York.
