Hessy Levinsons Taft, a retired chemistry professor at St. John's University, New York, has an amusing story to tell. When she was only 6 months old, her photograph was selected by the Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels to represent the “perfect Aryan baby”. Her cherubic face with chubby cheeks and wide eyes graced the cover of a popular Nazi family magazine Sonne ins Haus or “Sun in the House”, and she appeared on cards and posters across Nazi Germany. Unknown to Goebbels, Hessy Levinsons was a Jew.
