    It annoys me hearing millennials whine about how they need faster internet and all the latest cell phones before anyone bites my head off, I m of the millennial generation myself so I m not trying to be prejudiced People of my generation take everything they have, not just their material items but also their rights and freedoms, for granted This book tells the story of a woman whose freedom was taken from her, living a life in constant fear, having to hide her very ethnicity just to protect It annoys me hearing millennials whine about how they need faster internet and all the late...

    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 eloquently 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 def 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 eloquently described details bring the narrative vividly t...

    I found this to be a fascinating book, I could hardly put it down I found the fact that a highly educated woman successfully played an uneducated woman How difficult it much have been not to accidently just say something or use words above her station in life She lived day to day with the fear of being caught and sent to a concentration camp Edith only had one examination to take to receive her J D degree in law with extra training as a judge She arrived to take the last examination and I found this to be a fascinating book, I could hardly put it down I found the fact tha...
