Trude Schneider was a member of the BDM. My father served in WWII and somehow ended up with her photo album which details her summer in 1940 youth camp, some of that time near Nuremberg. I would love to know who she was/is, what happened to her and who her family was. She may have ended up working for the Ministry of Culture and Propaganda. Goebbels photo is also in the album.

I am a doctoral student and writing my dissertation on this.

    It is not impossible that she is still alive. You have to be very careful with possible identification: See, amongst others, this discussion genealogy.meta.stackexchange.com/a/2067/2663 – Chenmunka May 17 '17 at 8:50
  • Our privacy policy appears in the help center and I agree with @Chenmunka that there seems to be a chance that Trude could still be alive so please take care as you edit your question to provide any additional details. Any answerers should take similar care. – PolyGeo May 17 '17 at 11:11

    A poor hint is that Trude certainly stands for Gertrud. Unfortunately, Schneider is a very common name in Germany and Gertrud was a top 30 first name for girls in Germany the 30s. A second piece of info is that she must have been between 14 and 18 in 1940, this restricts the year of birth to the range 1921-1926. – J.J.D. May 17 '17 at 14:04
  • Some potential information on a german genealogy site : myheritage.de/… – J.J.D. May 17 '17 at 14:11
  • Thank-you all for your response. I continue to look for her. It appears there was an actress in Germany by the same name about that time but from the photos I have it does not appear to be the same person. – Nancy B Jan 15 '18 at 5:18
