The Nazi Officer's Wife
The Nazi Officer's Wife How One Jewish Woman Survived the Holocaust By Hahn-Beer, Edith Book - 1999

This is one of the most readable memoirs of a holocaust survivor I have read. Edith Beer writes of her time in a labour camp and then of her marriage to a nazi officer. She tells a very matter-of-fact story without dwelling on the horrors that we all know went on. She includes details that make her and those around her come to life. It is amazing to read how a survivor was able to hide in plain sight, and It is good to read of Germans who quietly helped. The narrative flows well and the photographs included give us a sense of who Edith was.
