It is a breath of fresh air to read something that recounts this. Surprisingly, the copy I bought from a book sale only have pages which had the Author's infamous Epilogue cut other reviewers rated it low because of it.
There are letters, poems and scanned tickets and photos in the book. The letters between them are heartbreaking and you see the longing and the love travel in each word just to reach one another.
Pages away from the characters, you get knocked down and be reminded how the war affected everything and how people sometimes do things which doesn't make any sense but they do it nevertheless and you think to yourself whilst reading, 'How about its repercussions?
Love can only do so much and sometimes that includes doing foolish things. I cried a few pages before I finished this book, went back to look at the pictures once more and felt closer to emotions I've never felt for a long time, and therefore this book has a special place in my heart.

It's crazy just to think about that without hearing any particular, but when one discovers that one woman is married to a Nazi and one is a Jewess.
Lilly Wust Aimee is married to a Nazi officer, and a mother of 4, Felice Jaquar is a Jewish woman living underground they were referred to as Uboats.
They meet through a 3. They meet through a mutual friend and Felice tells their friend she wants to see if Lilly "can smell Jews,"like she proclaims, so she starts coming around.
Not only can Lilly not "smell" Felice, but her presence in Lilly and her children's lives will forever be changed.
Felice is the one true love of Lilly's life, but this is not a happily ever after story. Jaguar decides to stay in Berlin, even though all the Jewish left were underground.
That was certainly her undoing, and inflicted damage that Lilly never recovered from. Erica Fischer interviewed Lilly in , when she was 80 years old.
She said Lilly was so accustomed to telling the story in the same way "mechanically,"with emotions at the same points, that it took her months to break down rote memory and touch their lives deeply.
I rated the book low because I felt Erica's writing was "mechanical. I believe it's an authors responsibility to take the given information and form an informative but also enjoyable book.
In the beginning, the dates of the journal entries and letters jump around making it difficult to establish a memorable time line.
Later in the book the journals and letters are chronological. The history in this book, taken directly from letters and journals, was enough to keep enough of my interest to finish the book.
I thought the love story wasn't well developed, and I felt it wasn't written in an inspiring fashion. I absolutely loved this book.
It is one of my all time favorites and the movie was wonderful to. If you have not had a chance to read, please do because it won't disappoint. Nov 01, legolasik rated it really liked it.
Finally, I plucked up the courage to read this book, given to me by a dear friend years ago. I knew it was going to hit very close to home and I didn't want to reopen the old wounds, for years I put if off, but I'm glad I did read it eventually.
Apart from the love story of two women, this is a story of how life was in Berlin before, during, and after the war. This is a story of the Jewish community and their struggle.
This is a story of how people can turn a blind eye. A story of how war affect Finally, I plucked up the courage to read this book, given to me by a dear friend years ago.
A story of how war affects those fortunate enough to survive. As to the love story, I look at Lilly and Felice and see myself. We had much the same hopes and dreams for the future, which never came true.
We wrote each other letters and poems, spoke of never-ending love, were infatuated and blind. Though ours was a merciful fate no one died , we parted disillusioned and bitter.
Nobody knows that. I feel very sorry for Lilly, and I hope that the rest of her life, though not easy, had at least some happiness in it.
I mourn Felice and all the others, far too many, who perished at the hands of the antisemites. And I am grateful to the author Erica Fischer for telling their story.

At the beginning WW II is almost just the backdrop for the love part of the story and the nearer at the end of the book, and the war we are, the more devastations of the events comes to the foreground.
Of course, story is sad, but author succeeded to escape from overbearing sentimentality and she left to the story to speak for itself. May 15, Eli rated it liked it.
Heroic battles and anti-Semitism. I no longer want to have anything to do with this Germany, thank you very much.
Not with this one. May 10, Christina A Reader of Fictions rated it liked it. The World War II time period is one of my favorites to read about and study, so I was very curious to read this title.
While I do not think the author's writing was very good quite dry and boring , the story was astounding.
In none of my other reading, courses or film watching have I heard a story from a similar lens. The lesbian angle is new of course, but so were all of the details about the Jews who managed to keep living underground as it were in Berlin throughout the conflict.
Much of the The World War II time period is one of my favorites to read about and study, so I was very curious to read this title. The number of primary sources included in the tale is unique, as well.
The epilogue of the book consists of Erica Fischer's comments on the creation of the book, most of which is a diatribe of Lilly.
She does not trust Lilly, the main source for most of the recounted memories, because Lilly apparently knew her story too well and left gaps of time out.
I think Fischer's mistrust and judgment came into her writing and storytelling. For all that the cover names this a love story, she has her own opinions about that and it is quite evident.
After the war, Lilly wanted to convert to Judaism and thought of herself as a Jewess, about which Fischer has this to say: "I do not grant her the status of victim.
I guard the line that runs between her and Felice, my mother, and myself obdurately, protective of my small piece of identity" I leave this book skeptical of Erica Fischer as a historian, as she seems to biased, in this tale at least.
Still, I am happy to have read it, if only for its unique historical perspective. May 07, Chueca rated it it was amazing. A summer read that did not disappoint.
I loved loved loved Aimee and Jaguar's dedication to one another through the medium of letters. I am so thankful these survived to give the story the unique taste of the past.
I wish more people wrote letters, they are such a real declaration of the present moment what ever that moment maybe.
I have to go further and say they the movie that is based on this book is also really great. But, the book is a MUST. What brave women they are to have loved A summer read that did not disappoint.
What brave women they are to have loved eachother so much during that particular time and place in history. Truly a unique story.
This could have been a good book. But, it moves very very slow and i find my mind drifting away. Just csnt finish it. And, i love a good lesbian romance!

This is a story that remains heartbreakingly relevant. It's first and foremost about ordinary people in all their complexity -- sometimes petty and sometimes heroic, sometimes passionate and sometimes cruel.
But it's about those people during a time of evil; genuine evil, when it was taken as a fact by far too many that some people were not people, and deserved to be hated, robbed, enslaved, and murdered.
At a time when many countries are again or still turning away refugees and a sickeningly This is a story that remains heartbreakingly relevant.
At a time when many countries are again or still turning away refugees and a sickeningly familiar brand of racism is on the rise, this is one of many stories that needs to be remembered.
The writing of this book, unfortunately, is not always up to the power of the material. Whether because of the translation or because of the original text, some of it is presented confusingly.
In addition, there are as many irrelevant details as there are illuminating anecdotes about these people and their lives. Some of it also seems too slanted to the author's own viewpoints.
This is still an important story, but the storytelling sometimes let it down. Nov 26, Ruthiella rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiction.
I did find the structure of the book a This was an interesting, non-fiction account, of two women in love, one Gentile, one Jewish in Nazi Germany during the last years of WWII.
I did find the structure of the book a little difficult to follow at times, but definitely this is a worthy true-life account of the period and its complexities as focused on two lives and I am glad I read it.

Happy Pride month. Dec 23, Frances rated it it was amazing. I picked up this book because I loved the movie, which I saw without knowing anything about it.
It had it all. When I found out that the movie was based on a true story, my relationship to and understanding of it changed.
It became weightier. You see this ingenuous comfort all the time in movies based on true stories involving minorities. For example: in Stonewall, an offensively inaccurate depiction of the event, trans women of color who instigated the protest are replaced by a white, cis-gendered gay dude.
While of course not all white people were horribly racist, any sympathies they may have held for people of color pale in comparison to the discrimination and violence people of color faced.
Such liberties also obscure current issues, leading many white viewers to believe that these issues have been solved.
But I digress. These snapshots remind us that, like now, societies are always comprised of a boggling variety of people. The way history is written makes us forget this fact.
Details of daily life paint a vivid picture of what Berlin must have been like at the time. Her matter-of-fact assumption of a closeness to Jews was something I countered with an abrupt silence.
I do not grant her the status of victim. I guard the line that runs between her and Felice, my Jewish mother, and myself obdurately, protective of my small piece of identity.
She tried again and again to cross that line, sending greetings to my mother, using Jewish expressions, glorifying Israel and such, as if she had nothing to do with her own land of Germany.
I always feel cheated when I see that. You didn't. My sister, my mother Because for me nothing can be taken for granted.
No God. You want something special, Ilse. And I'm not. I'm ungrateful and desperate for admiration. Say whatever you like. But don't make me a victim, because it's my goddamned mediocre little right to be free.
As long as I can. Fischer says that Jaguar would have broken up with Aimee. Both women were denied the opportunity to find out, to live their lives, a right that everyone should have whether they do mediocre or remarkable things.
Reading about these women also reminds me of the importance of representation. When I realized I was gay when I was 14, I viewed lesbianism as something of a modern invention, a logical result of this mysterious period called the 60s where all the rules were thrown out the window and people just did whatever the hell they wanted.
May 04, Skye rated it it was amazing. I had watched the film many years ago and was interested in the story, but what really came across in the book was just how deeply they loved each other.
I also liked that Fischer didn't sugar coat her characters; she sheds light on their weaknesses and personality traits to paint a full picture.

I ended up finishing it while riding the T, crying even though I was in public, not just because it was a sad story but because the love they had was so deep and absolutely changed the course of Lilly's life, and even her son's religious calling.
I would recommend this to anyone-- in obvious ways, this is a lesbian love story, but more than anything it is a wartime love story Of two beautiful souls who found each other and are torn apart by forces beyond their control.
So glad I read this book. May 19, Evelin rated it really liked it. I was looking for Anne Frank Diary and this was just next to it.
You cannot look past this cover photo and well.. It was beautiful and sad and yet beautiful story of love, hope and despair. A bit muddled at times, but it actually was well put together from bits and pieces and letters and memories.
It seems wrong to be rating this book and especially using these yellow stars which are so reminiscent of the cruel tactics used by the Third Reich to identify the people in the community they planned to murder.
This isn't a work of fiction and each page had me wishing it were because there's no escape from the atrocities that took place in 'civilised Berlin' during Hitler's perverse reign.

Jan 10, Sarah D rated it liked it. The author didn't do this story justice! Should have been much more heart breaking and emotional but she tells the story in such a matter-of-fact way.
Dec 07, Tamika Caston rated it it was amazing. Stunning memoire regarding love found during the Holocaust between a Nazi's wife and a Jewish woman on the run.
As intriguing as it is heartbreaking, this true and tragic lovestory of two women - one a Jew in hiding, the other a Nazi officer's wife - is a fascinating and deeply touching read.
In my opinion, the content might have been better handled by a historian and would also make a wonderful novelisation, should someone ever wish to write one.
The connection between the women was so strong, their correspondence so romantic and tender, their loyalty to each other in the most heinous of times fierce and unflinching, they had me sobbing loudly and messily throughout.
Both women were fascinating and courageous in their own right, and the book serves as a humane and moving testament to the purity of unconditional love, and the urgency with which we love in tumultuous times.
