As a 10-year-old in 1933, the author was for the first time made aware of being a Jew. Brought up by secular, socialistic parents in middle-class Berlin, she had her identity thrust upon her with savage suddenness when life became dangerous for her family. She describes the subterfuges and schemes, and escape by her father to England, that kept her and her mother alive in Nazi Germany and later, during the Russian invasion. In an unassuming memoir, Deutschkron, a journalist in Tel Aviv, contributes a footnote to the ever-growing anecdotal history of the Holocaust. (Jan.)
