review The Nazi Officer's Wife

The Nazi Officer's Wife Read Ì 100 Man's identity papers in hand Edith fled to Munich There she met Werner Vetter a Nazi party member who fell in love with her And despite her protests and even her eventual confession that she was Jewish he married her and kept her identity secretIn vivid wrenching detail Edith recalls a life of constant almost paralyzing fear She tells of German officials who casually uestioned the lineage of her parents; of how when giving birth to her daughter she refused all painkillers afraid that in an altered state of mind she might reveal her past; and of how after her husband was captur. What makes this memoir of an Austrian Jewish woman relentlessly moving is the attention to detail the sharp incisive nature of Hahn s observations These elouently described details bring the narrative vividly to life The title is slightly misleading and hints perhaps at a cinematic melodrama which does this book a disservice Her husband was a painter blind in one eye and thus spent most of the war working as a kind of foreman in a paint factory Only when the Nazis were on the verge of defeat and desperate was he conscripted and made an officer He is essentially a good man not at all synonymous with the term Nazi Officer She does a brilliant job of portraying the constant terrors of being trapped in a world where you are being hunted Most poignantly of all she gets us to understand that everyone almost always has the choice of being kind or unkind no matter what the circumstances True to show kindness often takes courage but Hahn shows us that courage is no less a part of our humanity than charity It s essentially an incredibly gripping and moving story of kindness and unkindness And as Hahn points out It was the individuals who made their own rules in many situations No one forced them to act in an unkind manner The opportunity to act decently towards us was always available to them Only the tiniest number of them ever used it Wholeheartedly recommended

I have read a good number of books about the holocaust and most of them were novels I keep reading them because they are gut wrenching and they keep reminding me that it s important for us to acknowledge and remember what happened in those concentration and death camps Reading a memoir like this one only reminds me all the how horrific this history was and that this happened to real peopleThis book is not about the concentration or death camps but it is about the courage and determination of one woman who survived the holocaust as yes a Nazi Officer s wife Because she didn t go to the camps did not mean that Edith didn t experience horrific conditions go hungry or did not suffer physically or mentally She did She was sent from Vienna when the Nazis took over to work as a slave laborer on a farm then at a box factory With bleeding hands little food and despicable living conditions and only the hope of packages and letters from home she manages to surviveThen right in the middle of the Nazis she is defiant brave smart and afraid as she finds ways to make them believe that she is one of them I also loved knowing about the people who helped her It restores my faith in humanity to know of these people who risked their lives to save another human being who happened to be Jewish It is so well written that it almost doesn t feel like a memoir which can sometimes feel just like a reiteration of events and dates This is the story of an amazing woman whose strength and resilience saved her life as well as her daughter s I love that her daughter convinced her to tell her story otherwise we would not have known about this remarkable woman I am glad that we can remember her We said Heil Hitler In my soul s fastness I prayed Let the beast Hitler be destroyed Let The Americans and the RAF bomb the Nazis to dust Let the German Army freeze at Stalingrad Let me not be forgotten here Let Someone remember who I really am
