My Wounded Heart: The Life of Lilli Jahn, 1900-1944

New York: Bloomsbury, 2004. First U.S. Edition. First Printing. 269, illus., map, DJ somewhat worn and soiled. The true story of a Jewish doctor and mother in Hitler's Germany, comparable in importance to the diaries of Anne Frank and Victor Klemperer. When Lilli Jahn's husband and fellow doctor was separated from her under pressure from the Nazis, she and her children were left unprotected, and she was arrested and sent to Breitenau labor camp. Lilli was a prolific letter writer and, miraculously, almost all her letters to her children and friends have survived as well as many of their replies to her. The editor, Martin Doerry, was Lilli Jahn's grandson and also editor in chief of Der Spiegel. Condition: very good, good.
