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.

    "Spellbinding"

    This is the of Edith Hahn Beer, a story of a survivor of the holocaust. Hers is a story of courage, intelligence and determination.. She did everything she had to do to survive and and we are privileged to be hear her story of this woman. The narration was exceptional, Barbara Rosenblat you really feel like you are there listening to Edith personally tell her story to you, and you won't forget it.

    Story
    "The Nazi Officer's Wife"

    I can't imagine what it was like for Edith and the life she led. Everything depended on her ability to lie---to be protected by the officer and then later betrayed by him in their marriage. Her ability to survive and go on living just amazed me. She is such a strong woman.

    "Recommended to those who want to read about Jews"

    The book gave me an insight into the realities faced by Jews during Second World War. It's very moving and sad but recommend it to all who want to know about Jewish life during the world war.

    "Great reminder. Great courage!"

    Hard to believe what people went through during those horrible years. We must always be aware of where truth comes from.
