"When the Red Army soldiers discovered the Arndt, Lewinsky and Gumpel families in April 1945 there were seven survivors, the largest known group to have lived through the second World War at the heart of the Third Reich." "Rather than risk 'resettlement', the four members of the Arndt family decided to go into hiding in January 1943, later being joined by three friends. Finding themselves in a shadowy underworld, they had to survive without identity cards, ration books or any secure accommodation. And yet, with the help of non-Jews, they did survive." "Erich Arndt, his wife Ellen (nee Lewinsky) and his sister Ruth Arndt Gumpel, now living in the USA, here tell their story in detail for the first time. They have long felt that the world should be told that anti-Semitism was not as ubiquitous among ordinary Germans as has previously been supposed. The Arndts recall at least fifty non-Jewish Germans who risked their own lives to give them assistance and want to leave a public record as a memorial to these extraordinary acts of kindness and bravery." "As well as being a story of tremendous courage - and not a little good luck - this book challenges the 'truths' accepted about life in Germany during the darkest days of Hitler's rule."--BOOK JACKET.
