My Wounded Heart: The Life of Lilli Jahn 1900-1944
From her idealistic young womanhood in Cologne to the end of her life, Lilli Jahn was a prolific letter writer. After studying medicine and marrying her Protestant sweetheart, Ernst Jahn, she set up home and a medical practice. Then, in 1933, Hitler took power and everything changed. Ernst was pressured to divorce his Jewish wife, and when he did, Lilli and her five children were left unprotected from the local Nazis. Arrested and sent to Breitenau labour camp, Lilli was angry and afraid, but she could at least write and receive letters. Miraculously, almost all of her many letters to her children and friends survived, smuggled out of Breitenau when she knew that Auschwitz would be her fate. A powerful, inspiring and heart-rending book and a tribute to a woman of extraordinary courage.
