Edith Hahn Beer tells her story beautifully. It is emotional. She survived the ghetto and labor camps. She was hunted and went underground, scavenging food, and searching for a place to sleep each night. A Christian friend helped her to re-emerge under a different name. She worked as a nurses aide for the Red Cross, She met Werner Vetter who was a member of the Nazi party. He knew her secret, yet married her anyway.
Edith lived in fear of being discovered. She gave birth to her daughter without pain meds, because she was afraid she might expose her self under the influence of drugs. When her husband was captured by the Russian army and her home was bombed she and her daughter hid from drunken Russian soldiers.
Edith saved every paper to document her story and even succeeded in taking pictures while inside the labor camps. She is a hero, a woman who did what she had to to survive during a terrible time.
I loved the book and highly recommend it to everyone.
