Trivia Information

I recently read a book called "The Diary of Mary Berg" which is a diary of a 16 year old in the Warsaw Ghetto during World War 2.  The book is interesting and worth reading but in the back in the footnotes was an interesting comment.  Jews could not have the same birthday as Adolf Hitler (April 20th) so they had to pick another day to put on all their official papers.  Mary Berg, the author,  ( Miriam Wattenberg was her actual name) was born April 20, 1924 so she changed her birth date to October 10th.
