Franziska "Franzi" Stern Groszmann (December 27, 1904 – September 20, 2005) was possibly the last surviving mother of the Kindertransport. She sent her daughter (born 1928), now a writer known as Lore Segal, to England following Kristallnacht. Groszmann's husband, Ignatz, a Vienna accountant before the Holocaust, died at the end of World War II following a series of strokes.
Groszmann served as a consultant on the documentary Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport. Groszmann and Segal also appeared in Melissa Hacker's Academy Award-winning 1996 film My Knees Were Jumping.
Groszmann died on September 20, 2005, aged 100. She was survived by her daughter, two grandchildren, two great-grandsons and a brother, Paul Stern.
