Jewish pediatricians in Nazi Germany: victims of persecution.

Author information

Children's Hospital at Montefiore/Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, New York 10467, USA.


The plight and fate of German Jewish pediatricians during the Nazi period in Europe has not received much attention, yet the narratives of the victims still resonate today and they deserve to be remembered. The stories of two women serve as examples of the fateful turns taken by the lives of many German Jewish pediatricians between 1933 and 1945. The two women, Dr. Luci Adelsberger and Dr. Lilli Jahn, illustrate both the ordeals endured and the disparate ways the Nazi policies ultimately spared or ended lives.
