Elisabeth Mann Borgese was born in Munich, Germany in 1918, to parents Katia Pringsheim and Nobel Prize winning writer, Thomas Mann. The fifth of six children, Elisabeth was born into an intellectual family whose views supported the post-war movement for World Federalism. While in exile from Nazi Germany, Elisabeth earned a Bachelor of Arts in Classical studies and a diploma from the Conservatory of music in Zurich, Switzerland before her family immigrated to the United States in 1938. The following year, Elisabeth married Giuseppe Antionio Borgese, an Italian professor and author then employed by Princeton University with whom she had two children, Domenica and Angelica.
