hits you from the first page Then as you get to know EdithGrete you are drawn into her moral dilemas the choices she made When I picked up this book honestly I had a completely different view of Edith I was a bit disgusted at the thought of a Jewish woman who survived the holocaust by marrying a Nazi officer I thought she was self centered Well she isn t Not at all She is a wonderful kind person who suffered terribly during the war Terribly She neverost her integrity Never You get completely the wrong idea of Edith by reading that title The title IS perfect but you have to read the book to

stop here bc the Masterpiece list goes on and on Not all of these people acted admirably but what they did you come to understand That is why I used the word empathy This book focuses on how people behave and why they behave as they do not delivered as aecture but simply by throwing a spotlight on them This is a book about the holocaust but don t think it is devoid of humor I promise you people are just so unbelievably funny What they come up with is utterly amaing and absurdly funny and wonderful Another very interesting issue is what Edith did with her education as a The Reality Creation Technique lawyer judge How it meandered AFTER the war To tell you would be a spoiler but it is a very interesting point How other Jews and Germans have reacted to Edith after the war is also revealing I could go on and on Instead read the book Through page 153 Most people do not have the courage to be kind Most often kindness doesn t demand courage but sometimes it does and then who is strong enough brave enough to jeopardize their own security for another human being Such people are to be found on BOTH sides of any conflict In this case some were Nazis others were gentiles and others Jews

should uote but it is terribly difficult to pick just one They show that she is a personike all the rest of us simply trying to get through this mess at the same time retaining an ounce of integrity This book shows how many different people behave when put in a tight spot Or should I say when stamped on Each behaves differently some better than others but the focus is on each idividual behavior Unpretentious writing from start to finish You can relate to her thoughts and experiencesThrough page 23 I Ars poetica love this absolutelyove this book Why Well it is all in the ability of the author

at the University of Vienna and fancied herself inove with a young socialist who was himself saved from the Holocaust by his Catholic mother Until the Nazi s absorbed Austria a dream of socialist utopia was the political movement of the youth of Edith s day allowing Hitler to capitalize with his vision of National Socialism Most intriguing and fascinating about Edith s history is the way in which she reveals to us day to day Nazi Germany from the perspective of citizen and Jew simultaneously Her s is a tale of courage of stamina of forbearance and fortitude of the adaptability of the human spirit in order to survive Edith projects a human face into my reading of The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich Her experiences are the cry of the clarion calling us to be ever vigilant in

rather married her Edith fell into the roll of the submissive dutiful hausefrau expected of German women That made Werner happy and making him happy kept her alive But there was also true Health and Healing for African-Americans love between them I think that was one of the genuine surprises of the book that Edith could fall inove with a man who viewed her blood as racially inferior But Edith would be uick to point out that no one person was all good or all bad Sometimes it was the most brutal SS man who saved your Garden of Snakes (House of Royals life and the sweetest oldady who betrayed you for a few coinsI found Edith s story really compelling I found some of her decisions hard to understand but then again I ve never been in her shoes One thing I really appreciated was the uniue

The author also does not utilize dates nearly enough Overall though pretty good memoir from a woman with a uniue 隠れていた宇宙 [Kakurete Ita Uchū] 2 life story It annoys me hearing millennials whine about how they need faster internet and all theatest cell phones before anyone bites my head off I m of the millennial generation myself so I m not trying to be prejudiced People of my generation take everything they have not just their material items but also their rights and freedoms for granted This book tells the story of a woman whose freedom was taken from her The Sorcerers Soul living aife in constant fear having to hide her very ethnicity just to protect herself her husband an SS officer and her daughter chilling stuff very disturbing realities are documented here and yet there s a ight at the end of the tunnel for this brave woman Definitely an excellent book worth reading This felt ike a conversation with the author between only the two of us I Satans Mistress loved it Ioved how easy it read in that wa I found this to be a fascinating book I could hardly put it down I found the fact that a highly educated woman successfully played an uneducated woman How difficult it much have been not to accidently just say something or use words above her station in What My Mother and I Dont Talk About life Sheived day to day with the fear of being caught and sent to a concentration

Ed Cross She did not want to get her friend in trouble so she had to stay out of sight She married Werner Vetter a Nazi Party member She had a daughter which made her a popular woman with the Nazis Werner was captured on the Eastern Front by the Russians and sent to SiberiaThe book is well written and the description of daily ife under the Nazis was interesting All of Edith s paper are at the Holocaust Memorial in Washington D C She resides in Israel It was her daughter that pushed her to tell her story The book is 330 pages Burning bridges long I read this as an e book on my Kindle app for my iPad What makes this memoir of an Austrian Jewish woman relentlessly moving is the attention to detail the sharp incisive nature of Hahn s observations These elouently described details bring the narrative vividly toife The title is slightly misleading and hints perhaps at a cinematic melodrama which does this book a disservice Her husband was a painter blind in one eye and thus spent most of the war working as a kind of foreman in a paint factory Only when the Nazis were on the verge of defeat and desperate was he conscripted and made an officer He is essentially a good man not at all synonymous with the term Nazi Officer She does a brilliant job of portraying the constant terrors of being trapped in a world where you are being hunted Most poignantly of all she gets us to understand that everyone almost always has the choice of being kind or unkind no matter what the circumstances True to show kindness often takes courage but Hahn shows us that courage is no Freshman Scandal (Freshman Dorm, less a part of our humanity than charity It s essentially an incredibly gripping and moving story of kindness and unkindness And as Hahn points out It was the individuals who made their own rules in many situations No one forced them to act in an unkind manner The opportunity to act decently towards us was always available to them Only the tiniest number of them ever used it Wholeheartedly recommended I have read a good number of books about the holocaust and most of them were novels I keep reading them because they are gut wrenching and they keep reminding me that it s important for us to acknowledge and remember what happened in those concentration and death camps Reading a memoirike this one only reminds me all the how horrific this history was and that this happened to real peopleThis book is not about the concentration or death camps but it is about the courage and determination of one woman who survived the holocaust as yes a Nazi Officer s wife Because she didn t go to the camps did not mean that Edith didn t experience horrific conditions go hungry or did not suffer physically or mentally She did She was sent from Vienna when the Nazis took over to work as a slave Rembrandts Jews laborer on a farm then at a box factory With bleeding handsittle food and despicable Refusing His Second Chance living conditions and only the hope of packages
