In February 1943, four thousand Jews went underground in Berlin. By the end of the war, all but a few hundred of them had died in bombing raids or, more commonly, in death camps. This is the real-life story of some of the few of them - a young mother, a scholar and his countess lover, a black-market jeweler, a fashion designer, a Zionist, an opera-loving merchant, a teen-age orphan - who resourcefully, boldly, defiantly, luckily survived. In hiding or in masquerade, by their wits and sometimes with the aid of conscience-stricken German gentiles, they survived. They survived the constant threat of discovery by the Nazi authorities or by the sinister handful of turncoat Jewish "catchers" who would send them to the gas chambers. They survived to tell this tale, which reads like a thriller and triumphs like a miracle. "The author's skillful selection of detail and his narrative drive have created the type of footnote [to history] that illuminates an entire subject." - New York Times Book Review "A tour de force . . . A consummately suspenseful narrative . . . remindful, in [its] exquisite detail, of Capote's In Cold Blood" - Los Angeles Times "An historian's book, a storyteller's book, and - most of all - a reader's book . . . All the real-life stuff of a John le Carré novel" - Los Angeles Herald Examiner… (meer)

Full review to come! ( )
  Floratina | Dec 7, 2019 |
The Jews of Berlin were shipped to death camps, starved to death, worked to death, committed suicide or were outright murdered. Only a handful of Jews managed to survive the entire war in Berlin. Leonard Gross has interviewed these people and compiled a book about their life and survival.

I thought this was an interesting slice of history. It was fascinating to read about how these courageous men and women survived. At times the names did seem to run together, but that is more my fault than the author's. Overall, well worth reading. ( )

Story of 12 Jews who survived WWII in Berlin, hidden by Germans or with disguises and false identities
  Folkshul | Jan 15, 2011 |
This book covers in detail the stories of a dozen or so Jewish individuals who managed to survive the Holocaust hiding in plain sight in Berlin, in the very heart of Nazism. The author conducted extensive interviews with his subjects and, I expect, those that helped hide them, and he covers their stories almost day by day. It's very well-written and at times almost reads like a suspense novel -- I didn't want to put it down. Highly recommended. ( )
