Fascinating life story of a Jewish woman who became a "U-boat," a survivor in the Nazi time who used false identity papers. She eventually married a Nazi officer who did not seem to mind that she was Jewish at first. After the war she worked as a family judge in Berlin and moved to England and remarried. Shows complications of real life and living a lie, and staying true to herself in an evil time.

Very powerful and deeply moving story. Edith Hahn’s remarkable story is told in her own words and quite matter of fact. I thought I wouldn’t like her as she must have married a Nazi ( title of the book) but I did like her very much. Her story is important and I thank her for it. We must never forget.

Edith Hahn Beer’s memoir of her life prior to and during World War II in Austria and Germany. The book starts before the war and covers her decision to remain in Austria as well as events that led to her marriage to a Nazi. As conditions for European Jews worsened, and with assistance from others, she made the decision to “hide in plain sight.” This is a riveting story of identity, fear, courage, guilt, and redemption. It provides another slice of history, depicting the personal impact of the Nazi regime. It shows the lengths to which a person needed to go to survive. At times, it seemed she was almost apologizing for what she decided to do to escape Nazi persecution, but who can blame her? The tone of this book is one of candor. She does not shy away from addressing difficult subjects. I felt like I was sitting down with the author and listening to her tell me her story. Recommended to those interested in the history of World War II, especially personal experiences of that time period.… (lisätietoja)
