By August 15, 2019 No Comments

Else Ury’s ‘Nesthäkchen’ books for young readers “sold millions of copies from 1918 to 1933. Then, with the Nazis in power, she was barred as a Jew for publishing her work, even though her last book featured Adolf Hitler as a hero.” She died at Auschwitz in 1943.  (The New York Times, 7/10/19)
