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. Download and start listening now!

    " Was really, really good. I couldn't stop once I started. Just had to find out what happened. Not as sad as most holocaust books... was able to show some of the triumph over the enemy! "

    " This was a bit of a different view from most Holocaust memoirs that I've read in that Edith never spent time in a work or death camp. However, it gave a very good view of what the public, Jewish and non-Jewish, was experiencing. The one view she didn't see much of was the Nazi Officer's view because she experiences that for a short time at the very end of the war, but still we are shown that it was a privileged existence. I found it interesting that she was horrified by the camp prisoners who had lost their sense of social norms and it was fascinating to see how quickly East Germany becomes a watchful communistic state, from which she flees. "

    " The Nazi Officer's Wife is another great book about survival during the holocaust. The difference is that this young woman chose (or was chosen by) a means of survival that I had never considered. Her choice did not come without sacrifice, pain, loss, and heartache, but hers is an amazing story and well worth reading. "
