Journal Entry 1 by LFLHunter from Burlington, Ontario Canada on Tuesday, April 26, 2022
From back cover: Edith Han was an outspoken young woman studying law in Vienna when the Gestapo forced Edith and her mother into a Jewish ghetto. Edith was taken away to a labor camp, and when she returned home months later, she found her mother had been deported. Knowing she would become a hunted woman, Edith went underground, scavenging for food and searching each night for a safe place to sleep. Her boyfriend, Pepi, proved too terrified to help her, but a Christian friend was not. Using the woman's identity papers, Edith fled to Munich. There she met Werner Vetter, a Nazi Party member who fell in love with her. Despite her protests and even her eventual confession that she was Jewish, he married her and kept her identity a secret.

My thoughts: I don't think Edith ever really fully loved her husband, she cared about him, was found of him, at times liked him, but I'm not sure if she fully loved him. A strong and smart woman who hid as a timid, quiet uneducated woman, to stay alive. I found this book at a LFL a while ago, and finally read it, it was in less than perfect condition when I found it.
