Eva Storch was born into a Jewish family in Bukowitz (Polish: Bukowiec) in the rural district of Schwetz (Polish: Świecko) on 18 May 1914. Together with her parents Rosa and Heimann Storch and her sister Hilde, she moved first to Frankfurt an der Oder and in 1929 to Fürsten­walde, where the family ran a shop for ladies’ and men’s wear. After her apprentice­hip as a furrier, Eva lived in Berlin-Friedenau. In December 1938, she married Josef Prager and moved in with him at Wallnertheaterstraße 28 in Berlin-Mitte.

On 3 February 1943, Eva and her husband were deported on Transport No. 28 to the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp, where they were murdered. Her sister Hilde managed to escape to England; her parents were deported to the Warsaw Ghetto in 1942. Nothing further is known about their fate.
