It is neither easy nor agreeable to dredge this abyss of viciousness, and yet I think it needs to be done, because what could be perpetrated yesterday could be attempted again tomorrow, could overwhelm us and our children.
--Primo Levi The Drowned and the Saved (1988)
If she hadn't been so foresighted about Hitler, I wouldn't be here.
Stella's daughter is a public health nurse in Israel, nearly fifty, wiry, tense, alert to hints of danger in the wind, like a doe.
"They get it every night in their dreams," Dr. Kinsler said.
In all of Holocaust literature there has never been another book like this: Haunting, deeply personal, as exciting as a spy novel, it is a non-fiction Sophie's Choice. Stella Goldschlag was blond, beautiful, and seductive, but she was also Jewish, and in World War II Germany, that could be fatal. But somehow she was transformed into a tool of the Gestapo, a collaborator in Hitler's "Final Solution". Now one of her childhood friends finds out how, and why. 16 pages of photos.
