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.

An Amazing Story & Narration

I felt as if I was sitting across the table from Edith listening to her relive her story with all of its emotion, stress, and fear. I had read excellent reviews of the book and am so glad that I listened to it instead of read it. The narrator made each character's voice so true and unique. Each sigh and pause was perfect. I could hardly stop listening.

You will not be disappointed!

Thought Provoking

The story of Edith Hahn Beer is just one of thousands of stories of survival that came out of the holocaust. Each story is one of courage, intelligence and luck. Edith's story is no exception. She did everything she had to do to survive and we are all lucky enough to be able to learn and be inspired by the incredible actions of this woman. The narration was exceptional, Barbara Rosenblat really made Edith come to life. As you listen, you feel her fear and her pain. An excellent listen.

A riveting Story

Listed to this whilst travelling from Cumbria to a GP Practice in East London and the journey just few buy. That the story is true just makes the story the more incredible. As you get to know the characters and see Nazi Germany from a frightened housewife?s point of view you get perspective. Not every one in the story is bad, and many are not good at all, but they are all so real and so ordinary. You see the risk, the helpless endurance when all around you hate. You see how bad things can get and how grateful we can all be for the simple safety of our homes. It left me wondering if in the end, I could have come through what she came through with as much dignity and humanity. It also on a personal level, without getting all weird about it, made me reflect on suffering. How in the end it?s so individual. Millions might be suffering, but its millions of individuals just like you and I.

I have hundreds of Audible books now as I have been a member since only Audible.Com existed, and this is still one of my favourite listens.

A fantastic story of courage

This is my first purchase on Audible. I am delighted that, by chance, I found this amazing book, beautifully and powerfully written, and brilliantly narrated. The characters come completely to life. It's hard to believe that someone had the courage to survive such an ordeal, yet it is also full of hope. I can't recommend it highly enough.
