Available in Stock
‘It was 22 June 1942, and the doorbell rang at six in the morning. In the Germany of those days that was not the milkman arriving.’ On that morning, a young Jewish Berliner called Marie Simon escaped Gestapo arrest and went into hiding. This extraordinary memoir of her daily life as a fugitive, adapted from dictations to her son, captures both the cruelty and kindness of war-torn Germany.
