A story of the impossible choices of vulnerable individuals living under the Third Reich and the blurred boundaries between victim, bystander, and accomplice.

"The authors have brought to light a fascinating subject, which, to my knowledge, has not been treated elsewhere, namely the story of a racially determined but not identifying Jew who became caught up in the Nazi death machine."—Michael A. Meyer, author of Jewish Identity in the Modern World

"A compelling read, and Milbouer’s translation does an excellent job of creating an English-language text that will capture the attention of a wide group of readers."—Jonathan Hess, author of Middlebrow Literature and the Making of German-Jewish Identity

"Willy Wiemokli’s journey through German history in the twentieth century is at the core of this compact and fascinating volume. His story is not one of heroism, but rather one of precarious existence, ethical compromise, and survival."—Alan E. Steinweis, University of Vermont
