Outcast: A Jewish Girl in Wartime Berlin Paperback – July 25, 2017
From Publishers Weekly
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.

About the Author
Born in 1922, Inge Deutschkron grew up in Berlin and was brought up as an atheist. Her parents were members of the Social Democratic Party. In 1939, Inge had to leave high school because she was Jewish, and her father Martin escaped to England. In 1941, Inge was sent to work as a forced laborer at a parachute silk factory. Through the Jewish Community, she contacted Otto Weidt who employed blind and deaf Jews to produce brooms and brushes and protected them. Weidt gave Inge an office job, despite the strict ban on Jews working in an office. In January 1943, Inge and her mother Ella went into hiding in several places with the help of friends and acquaintances, and stayed in Potsdam until the end of the war. In 1946 they joined Martin in England where Inge studied foreign languages and worked in the Socialist International Office. In 1955, Inge started working as a freelance journalist in Bonn and became the Germany correspondent for the Israeli daily newspaper Maariv in 1960. From 1972 until 1987, she worked for Maariv in Israel. In 2001, she returned to Berlin where she now lives.

Even in the worst of oppression not everyone followed the rules, thank goodness.
