life stories

remembered... recounted... recorded!

Lily – Eine ganz normale Deutsche

When Elisabeth Roeckner, born 1915, narrates her life she need not only rely upon her excellent memory, but upon folders full of letters, diaries and a shoe box filled with meticulously administered calendars. 

The vivid portrayal of the “cheeky lass from a good home” and her contemporary records convey an authentic feeling of the time and the life lived. In its own unique way this also applies to the period of the Nazi dictatorship.
