About (Profile/Biography):
Hedwig Dohm was born on September 20, 1831. She was the third child of (Henriette) Wilhelmine Jülich, née Beru, and tobacco manufacturer Gustav Adolph Gotthold Schlesinger (originally Elchanan Cohen Schlesinger). She was the daughter of a Protestant convert who adopted Schleh's surname in 1851 after converting to Protestantism in 1817. Her father's family had strong reservations about the marriage, so it wasn't until 1838 that Hedwig's parents married.
