Oral history interview with Judith Heimann

Oral History | Accession Number: 2011.254 | RG Number: RG-50.030.0643

Judith Heimann, born August 23, 1920 in Frankfurt, Germany, discusses her Protestant father and Jewish mother; her well-to-do but unostentatious life in Frankfurt where she and her older sister Ruth grew up as Protestants; various schools she attended in Frankfurt, Switzerland, and England, and jobs held in doctors’ offices in Frankfurt; her memories of the bombing of Frankfurt; meeting her Jewish husband while both worked for the United States military government in the post-war denazification program; immigrating to the United States in 1947; maintaining ties to Germany through friends and family; and her view that any German citizen who had a connection with Jews knew as early as 1935 about the treatment of Jews and later about the concentration camps.

Some video files begin with 10-60 seconds of color bars.
