When Hitler came to power, everything changed. By 1938 the Hitler Youth were very visible in my school. Suddenly no one spoke to me – if they did, they got into trouble. I was moved to the back of the class and my desk was painted yellow and said “here sits a dirty Jewish girl”. My work was no longer corrected, and despite being top of my class, I was not allowed to win the first place award – a copy of Mein Kampf.
