Abstract

This is a collection of writings about a family torn apart by Nazi race laws and their experience of the Holocaust. It details the lives of a Christian family with Jewish lineage in a small town in the Brandenburg region of Germany in the first half of the 20th century. Most of this collection was written in German in 1939 by Dorothea Oppenheimer upon her arrival as a German "refugee" and prior to her immigration to the United States. It also includes excerpts from Ernst Oppenheimer's memoirs regarding his conversion from Judaism to Christianity. Some details regarding arrests and deportations to the Warsaw ghetto and Theresienstadt are also included.
