Summary
In this absorbing memoir, author Marie Jalowicz Simon relates her experiences as a hidden Jew in Berlin during World War II. In 1941, when she realized that the SS was likely to round her up for deportation to a concentration camp, she disappeared into the city, relying on family and friends to help her survive to the end of the war. Simon's son Hermann transcribed his mother's unusual odyssey from her tape recordings. This emotionally touching but unsentimental account expresses hope for the future. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
