I suspect that this fine book will be remembered as one of the best written about the Holocaust. Its excellence stems from Roseman's analytic, almost psychological, portrayal of Ms. Ellenbogen's childhood and early adulthood.

This volume is the story of a historian, Mark Roseman, and his relationship with Marianne Ellenbogen (nee Strauss) - an elderly Liverpool resident with a remarkable past. This chance meeting between an expert on Germany and a survivor of the most terrible event in Germany's history had an impact that neither party could have anticipated. Roseman interviewed Marianne Ellenbogen several times about her experiences, but then - after Marianne's death in 1996 - he found himself with access to a vast range of papers secreted in their house - photos, diaries, letters. This book is about the extraordinary physical and emotional journey these papers provoked -it is a detective story, a love story, a story of great courage and survival under impossible conditions. Drawing on interviews with those who knew Marianne, on countless papers and on Roseman's wider knowledge of the Third Reich, this story s also about a historian's investigation into the nature of memory - about a past that remained "in hiding" for more than 50 years.

A Past in Hiding follows the life of Marianne Ellenbogen (Strauss), a Jewish woman who lived underground for nearly two years in World War 2 Germany. The book traces her early childhood in the 1920s to her teenage years in the 1930's as Nazi persecution increased to the decisive moment when she escaped from the Gestapo as her family was being deported to a concentration camp.

The book really conveys how one woman and her surrounding family and fiancee were effected and managed to live during Nazi persecution. The author did tremendous research to open a window into exactly how Jews tried to cope with the insanity of life during this period. What I felt was how one person was able to deal with all the facets that were thrust upon her, including her Jewish identity (impressed on her by Aryans), the constant threat of deportment, the not knowing what happened to love ones that were deported, her interesting and daring life living underground (supported by a forgotten group called the Bund), and then the survivors guilt and the difficulty of existing in post-war Germany.

The one hard part of the book was the way the author weaves himself into the story. Instead of just telling Marianne's story, he talks about the path to getting the information to tell the story, a trend I noticed also in the book "Paper Love, Searching for the Girl my Grandfather Left Behind". I found at times this slowed the story down. However this style also helps you get more intimately acquainted with many of the subjects in the book who are still alive so it does have a positive.

Overall it's a fascinating, educational and moving book that examines the persecution that took place from many perspectives, including prior to the start of WW2, during the war, and the post-war and how Aryan Germans behaved during all phases. A highly recommended book for anyone interested in how both Jewish Germans and Aryan Germans behaved and coped during this horrible time in history.

This is the story of Marianne Ellenbogen and how she survived the Holocaust as a German Jew in Nazi Germany. Marianne was from the Strauss family, a Jewish family with a sterling history, lots of wealth and lots of power. As many advantages as her family had, Marianne never really got along with her parents. She thought her father favored her younger brother, Richard. As the 1930's went along, life became more and more difficult for Marianne's family. After Kristallnacht , Marianne's family tried desperately to leave Germany, but were still trapped. Going into the 1940's things took a different turn for the Strauss family. I don't want to give away the most intriguing parts of the story, suffice to say, the story is amazing. Marianne was one of the few of her family to make it through the war, she survived the last few years in Germany as a hidden Jew, but always on the run. You really had to be a special type of person to survive that way, most people couldn't do it. I give the author of this book a lot of credit, he had to go through so much material and so many twists and turns to write the story. It also shows how memory is such a fascinating thing, and absolute marvel and a real mystery. Also, be prepared to read for a while, this book has over 400 pages. I really did like A Past in hiding, I gave it four stars just because the book is so marked up in so many ways and so many places, that at times it was difficult to just read. Still a good read though.

I had no idea about organizations like the "Bund" or that so many people managed to hide in Germany for the duration of the war. Such brave people defying the thugs of the Third Reich. An inspiring and honest biography.

Well written account of an incredible life.
Umdwyn
Interesting; written with much detail. A love story intertwined with some mystery. Only discouraged by the size ( a lot of pages)
a few interesting things, but mostly just rambles too much.
