The diaries of Hermann Pressman
- Credit Line
- United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Collection, Gift of Sonia Pressman Fuentes
Hermann Pressman's diaries commence on 21 July 1932, which coincided with his 18th birthday. Mr. Pressman used the 30 German marks he received as his birthday present to purchase the diary. The diary illustrates the difficulties endured by Hermann and his Jewish family during the Nazi ascendancy, detailing harassment, violence, economic marginalization, escape to Belgium, and eventual emigration to the United States. An English translation is available online, at the website for the Museum of Family History, http://www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/ce/pd-main.htm.
