German journalist and Jewish refugee from Nazi Germany. Lepman returned there as adviser on the cultural and educational needs of women and children with the U.S. Army in 1945. She determined that children's books were the best way to heal cultural conflicts and build a more peaceful world. Her first traveling exhibit led to the founding of the International Youth Library in Munich (1949) with eight thousand books contributed by publishers from twenty-three countries. She also established the International Board on Books for Young People (1952), an organization dedicated to crossing boundaries through children's literature.
She died 14 October 1970.
