5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating peek into war-torn Poland, 17 Nov 2009
This review is from: Hiding in Plain Sight: The Incredible True Story of a German-Jewish Teenager's Struggle to Survive in Mazi-Occupied Poland (Smith and Kraus Global) (Hardcover)
Bertel Weissberger, aka, Betty Lauer, is not a world-class writer, but she tells a tale that is so compelling, so terrifying, and so real that it is almost impossible to put down. This is not a story of blood and gore, but of spine-chilling, stomach-cramping, health destroying fear. Fear that is with her day in and day out for eight long years. If you ever wondered what it was like to live under the Nazi regime as a "hidden" Jew, that is a Jew masquerading as a Polish Christian, you will learn by reading this book. You will accompany Ms Lauer as she experiences sustained pyschic terror that is soul-destroying. A fantastic and instructive read.
