Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Domin was born in 1909 in Cologne as Hildegard L wenstein, the daughter of a German Jewish lawyer (her year of birth has been erroneously reported as 1912). Between 1929 and 1932 she studied at the universities in Heidelberg, Cologne and Bonn, and at the Humboldt University of Berlin. She initially read law, and later changed her specialism to economics, social sciences and philosophy. Among her teachers were Karl Jaspers and Karl Mannheim. As a result of the increasingly virulent anti-semitism in Nazi Germany, she emigrated to Italy in 1932 with her friend (and future husband) Erwin Walter Palm (a student of archaeology and writer) . She received a doctorate in political sciences in Florence in 1935. From 1935 to 1939 she worked as a language teacher in Rome. She married Palm in 1936. However, Hitler's visit to Rome and the acrimonious atmosphere of fascist Italy under Mussolini prompted them to once again emigrate.show more
