Berlin 1941. Marie Jalowicz Simon, a 19-year-old Jewish woman, makes an extraordinary decision. All around her Jews are being rounded up for deportation, forced labour and extermination. Marie takes off her yellow star and vanishes into the city.
Always on the move, never certain who could be trusted and how far, her quick-witted determination and the most amazing and hair-raising strokes of luck ensured her survival.
"Jalovicz Smon is a born storyteller, fluently describing dire practicalities, sparing no one in criticism or praise, including herself." (Observer)
"The tone of her testimony is remarkable, unsentimental and yet often infused with unexpected empathy for so many of the people with whom she crossed paths." (Jewish Chronicle)
