Abstract:

A biography of Lilli (Schlüchterer) Jahn, written by her grandson, based on 560 letters and various personal and family documents from the years 1882-1962 which were found after the death of her son, Gerhard Jahn, in 1998. Jahn, a Jew, was born in 1900 in Köln. She studied medicine and became a physician. In 1926 she married the non-Jewish physician Ernst Jahn. The couple settled in Immenhausen, near Kassel, where their five children were born and baptized. During the Nazi regime, Jahn was forced to give up her practice and gradually found herself socially isolated. Her husband divorced her in October 1942. In August 1943, she was arrested, interned in the Breitenau labor camp, and deported to Auschwitz in March 1944. The book contains the texts of 250 letters, or excerpts therefrom, written by Jahn and her children. Her last letter from Auschwitz, dated 5 June 1944, reached the family a few days before the confirmation of her death by the Gestapo.
