Description
A piece of undiscovered history as gripping as any thriller, this new memoir is the account of a young Jewish woman who survived the Holocaust during World War II by hiding out in the Nazi capital. Even as other Jews all around her were being rounded up for deportation, 20-year-old Marie Jalowicz Simon took off her yellow star and vanished into the city. In the years that followed she lived under an assumed identity, forced to accept shelter wherever she found it. Always on the run, never certain whom she could trust, Marie variously lived among foreign workers, staunch communists, and even committed Nazis; only her quick-witted determination—along with hair-raising strokes of luck—allowed her to survive.

"Captivating.... Jalowicz's story is unquestionably tragic in so many ways, but is also full of miracles, hope, and a future."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
