Felicia Altman-Gilbert was born in Berlin in 1917. With vivid expressive power she tells the story of her young life, unfolding as Hitler and the Nazi Party rise to corrosive power. The daughter of a prosperous expatriate American family of the theater, Altman-Gilbert sensitively evokes her childhood in Berlin and Hanover, and recalls a desertion by her youthful friends and betrayal by a country she believes to be her own. Altman-Gilbert transports us from Germany to Switzerland, England, France and on a Mediterranean cruise, finally to America, a journey from the Third Reich to a safe but startling new world.
