A Jewish Girlhood in Berlin

JennyfrontcovertinyIn the faded inky German handwriting in a 1940s school notebook, the editors of this memoir discovered a gem just waiting to be released from its dusty confines. This translation of the memoir of  Jenny Barth Bornstein tells of her childhood growing up in Berlin in the 1860s and 70s at the height of the Prussian Empire. Written when the author was in her nineties in the early 1940s, the notebook came to light only recently and has been lovingly translated, edited and annotated by Jenny’s German-speaking Texan descendants.

Jenny’s memoir is self published through Lulu.com, with layout, cover design, photo preparation, and publishing coordination by Jane Ross of MJR Publishing Services.
