Hans Maier autobiography
The Hans Maier autobiography is a photocopy of a typed and annotated translation of Maier’s original autobiography, which he wrote in German and mailed to his children just before his suicide in December 1937. Maier describes growing up in Frankfurt, his university education in law and economics, his marriage, the beginnings of his career in social work, his membership in the German Democratic Party and the German Social Democratic Party, the political turmoil in Germany following World War I, his work leading welfare services in Saxony, the economic depression, the rise of the Nazi party, Hitler’s appointment as chancellor, his own dismissal from office, and his wife’s illness and death.
