Description: A detective story, a love story, and a story of courage under the harshest conditions, A Past in Hiding illuminates one woman's experiences and in the process sheds light on the extraordinary cast of players - ordinary people turned heroes, enemies, victims, resistance fighters, survivors - whose lives are inextricably woven into the fabric of this darkest time in our history.
Marianne Strauss, the sheltered daughter of well-to-do German Jews is transformed almost overnight into a woman of spirit and defiance, acutely aware of the horrors around her. When the Gestapo seized her family, she went underground and for two years aided a remarkable resistance organization, previously unknown and unsung.
Drawing on an astonishing cache of photographs, letters, diaries, documents, and interviews on 3 continents, historian Mark Roseman reconstructs Marianne's odyssey and fate, revealing aspects of life in the Third Reich long hidden from view.
