“One of the best Holocaust memoirs”
LIBRARY JOURNAL

“A remarkable story”
JERUSALEM POST


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.

The Nazi Officer's Wife audiobook (Jewish Contemporary Classics, Inc.), narrated by Barbara Rosenblat (Miss Rosa on Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black"), won a coveted Audie Award from the Audio Publishers Association.

Available on iTunes, Audible and Amazon.
