Author With a Background in Foreign Consuls & History of Scandinavian Jews
My name is Cami Green Hofstadter and I’m a lecturer and life-long author in a great variety of genres ranging from the academic (such as the role of the foreign consuls throughout our communities; and the history of Jewish-Scandinavians during WWII) to the human interest area and other inspiring topics (such as my unfolding awareness as a Swedish-speaking Protestant in Helsinki, Finland, who settled in Miami where I found my home in Jewish culture and traditions.)
A European and U.S.-educated lawyer, with a PhD in Educational Leadership, I’m retired from a career as a law school administrator and adjunct professor, while also serving as a foreign consul for many years.
The best preparation any person gets is the life she’s led. While I grew up in war-torn Helsinki, Finland, my beloved America is where life truly began for me. As a wife and mother, I list among my past and current interests, tennis and golf, and ballroom dancing. A plethora of cultural offerings in South Florida adds yet another dimension to my life, which is also (at least pre-pandemic) interspersed with cruising to other parts of the world.
Today, I continue to lecture and write primarily in the two areas of interest shown by my most recent books:
The Yellow Star that Wasn’t: Scandinavia, Miami, and Me (an Amazon Bestseller in four categories) is a historical memoir about what happened to the Jews in Scandinavia during WWII, available in paperback and e-format (Kindle and Nook).
