Charles Hoffman was born into a Jewish family in Berlin, 1933 – the same year that Adolf Hitler came to power.
One of his earliest memories is of an anti-Semitic mob attacking a neighboring synagogue. Although his family escaped to America in 1939, Charles found more subtle persecution there as well. His schoolmates told him many times that the Jews were to blame for the death of Jesus – a suggestion Charles always rejected.
Given this history of persecution, one would expect that Charles would never be attracted to Christianity – but in fact, careful study of the Old Testament eventually led him to the Catholic Church.
