Hilde Adler was born in Nürnberg, Germany in 1928 and left Germany with her family in March 1939, just before the Nazis invaded Poland and World War 2 began. Nürnberg was the site of the Hitler rallies and was one of the centers of Nazi extremism. Hilde remembers a lot (though not everything) about those days, including Kristall Nacht, her move to “the Jewish school” and how it all looked and felt through the eyes of a child. She was in her home when storm troopers vandalized it on Kristall Nacht, November 9, 1938. A few years ago she wrote a small memoir, “The Way it Was, ” about her childhood memories. To her good fortune, her mother was an early, avid photographer, so she many photos.
