This is an incredible true story That doesn t give it a free pass as a book To put it plainly it is badly written In fact it is not written at all the spoken interview was committed directly to publishing I knew a girl Her name was so and so She had red hair I liked her brother a lot The red haired girl is then never mentioned again while the brother only pops up again and is finally named fifty pages later We all talk like this But this is not how written text works The book should have been edited by a professional Like many autobiographies this one makes assumptions about what the interesting bits are and runs out of steam at the end I would have liked to know a lot about Fred Beer Edith s postwar husband and the fifty years between WWII and the writing of this book Does Fred really rate just three sentences Can half a lifetime reflecting on the aftermath of wartime experience or trying to forget it be captured in a short epilogue All that is not to say you should not read this book You should if only to get a first person account of what it was like to be inside Germany in WWII That world is increasingly becoming a foreign country to us and the genocides since then suggest that we have learnt nothing

Read The Nazi Officer's Wife ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ed by the Russians and sent to Siberia Edith was bombed out of her house and had to hide in a closet with her daughter while drunken Russians soldiers raped women on the streetYet despite the risk it posed to her life Edith Hahn created a remarkable collective record of survival She saved every set of real and falsified papers letters she received from her lost love Pepi and photographs she managed to take inside labor camps On exhibit at the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC these hundreds of documents form the fabric of an epic story complex troubling and ultimately triumphan. The Nazi Officer s Wife How One Jewish Woman Survived the Holocaust was a most important memoir as told by Holocaust survivor Edith Hahn Beer She purposely buried her story for many years not wanting to relive the past nor to burden younger generations with her sad memories However her daughter Angela urged her to tell her story In 1997 she sold her archive of wartime letters pictures and documents to Sotheby s where it was bought by two philanthropists who donated it all to the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC The Hahn family lived in Vienna where Edith was well educated and almost out of law school when she was forced by the occupying forces into a ghetto and on to a labor camp where she became separated from her mother What follows is a tragic but compelling story as we see how Edith is forced underground eventually able to forge a new identity and live in Germany It is a gripping frightening and tragic tale while at the same time giving us all hope in the resilience of the human spirit That s all it takes you see a moment of kindness Someone who is sweet and understanding who seems to be sent there like an angel on the road to get you through the nightmareI simply retreated down down down trying to live in imitation of the German writer Erich Kastner whom I always admired and who responded to the Nazi years with what was called internal emigration The soul withdrew to a rational silence The body remained there in the madnessMy baby lay on a blanket laughing and cooing wriggling with happiness as I nuzzled her little belly And meanwhile the bombs smashed into the city over the horizon the sky flashed with orange and black waves of death the antiaircraft cannons roared The earth beneath her shook and trembled and Angela kicked her legs and laughed She kept me sane She made me smile in the presence of death She was my miracle As long as I had her I felt that any miracle could happen that all of the world could be savedWhat you see is a mask of calm and civility Inside always forever I am still weeping
