The Nazi officer's wife : how one Jewish woman survived the Holocaust

This was a fascinating memoir of a Jewish woman who was forced into a labor camp by the Gestapo and  later with the help of a Christian friend, changed her name and went underground.  She met and fell in love with a  Nazi officer who married her and  her secret even when she confessed that she was a jew.  The book is the story of her survival under terrible odds and was a difficult and emotional read but well worth the time I spent.
