Publisher's Summary

Edith Hahn was an outspoken young woman in Vienna when the Gestapo forced her into a ghetto and then into a slave labor camp. When she returned home months later, she knew she would become a hunted woman, so she went underground.

She emerged in Munich as "Grete Denner". There she met Werner Vetter, a Nazi Party member who fell in love with her. Despite Edith's protests and even her eventual confession that she was Jewish, he married her and kept her identity secret.

    "Outstanding!"

    Don't be afraid by the title or a publisher review. The story is so alive and breathaking not to mention it is based on real facts. I felt I was watching a movie rather than listening to a narration, it was so vivid. Just can't stop. Barbara Rosenblat's narration this time was absolutely amazing! One of my favorite listens of all times!!!

    "Wonderful Book"

    This book was quite interesting. The life of Edith and what she went through as a Jew during WWII. Barbara Rosenblat does a fantastic job as a reader. Her accent is well executed and easy to understand. Definately worth listening too.

    "Wise woman"

    Great read! Very smart and creative. She was a very strong woman. You do what you have to do in a situation that she was in. I hated to put it down could not wait to pick it up again. Wonderfully spoken by the narrator. A must have.

    "Holocaust Devotee Disappointed"

    Boring, predictable, lackluster, the Holocaust is only alluded to in segments...just a real disappointment from beginning to end.

    "Amazing"

    This biography is so amazing to me...I could not stop listening. A Jewish experience during WWII, but not gruesome. Definitely worth a credit.

    "A Wonderful Reader of a Wonderfully Moving Story"

    I have done Holocaust studies and this book helped bring much of my studies to life. Barbara Rosenblat's reading of the book was so believable that I kept thinking it was really Edith talking to me. I will probably buy the printed version for my school library.

    "Fantastic!"

    An incredible story. Well written, well told, very well read. Provides great insights on what it was like to live as a Jew in Vienna, and then what it was like to live as an imposter.

    "AMAZING story"

    I grabbed this one as a last second deal, and glad I did. The fact that it's a true story made it worthwhile. Just to get the perspective of an educated Jewish woman during the war was eyeopening, especially for a non-Jew.

    "Compelling"

    This is one of the most memorable books that I have downloaded from Audible (and I have downloaded over 250 books). The Narrator was outstanding. I recommend this to anyone.
