Biographical / Historical

Heinrich Hoffmann was a 19th century German phychiatrist and author, best remembered today for the children's book Der Struwwelpeter, which tells short, often over-the-top, cautionary tales of children being punished for misbehavior, which he originally wrote as a gift for his son. The book was published in 1845. Hoffmann died in 1894.

The Heinrich-Hoffmann-Museum (also now known as Struwwelpeter Museum), is located in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and was founded in 1977, to preserve and showcase the history of Hoffmann and his works.
