I am a writer and historian in Philadelphia PA. The Hoeber family originated in Karlsruhe Germany in the late eighteenth century. Over the last 200 years, descendants and their spouses have contributed to progressive politics, history and the arts. This website provides stories, texts and images related to this remarkable group of people. Most posts are taken from the extensive archive of photographs, letters and other documents left by my grandparents and parents, Rudolf and Josephine Höber and Johannes and Elfriede Hoeber.
Documents from the Hoeber Family Archive may be viewed by historians and other serious researchers upon request. Requests may be communicated via an inquiry posted in the “comments” box below.
Information on the book about the Hoebers, Against Time: Letters from Nazi Germany, 1938-1939, is available by clicking here.
