Hilde Hoffman's Growing Up in Hitler's Shadow is the story of a young girl born and raised in Germany during Hitler's regime. Medi, the main character, was a Jew, and her story describes the hardships and fear of living in Nazi Germany. Medi's story gives today's historians a glimpse into the life of a German Jew at a time when being such meant harsh treatment and almost certain death.
Hilde Hoffman, author of Growing Up in Hitler's Shadow, was born in Munich, Germany, in 1928. Her mother's side of the family was Jewish, and Hilde spent much of her time with them or close family friends. Although Hilde writes from a third person perspective, her life is that of Medi's in the story.
Collection consists of six folders.
This collection was donated to Special Collections by Hilde Hoffman in September 2005.
