PressestimmenIt has been my pleasure to hear Gisela McBride speak of her experience growing up in Nazi Germany... Audiences will learn...[about] the war from a different angle leading to a more comprehensive understanding of different cultures and political systems. -- Janeal Jaroh, Education Curator, Cumberland County Historical Society This first-person account shows how Germans-anti-Nazis-were able to survive in Hitler's Germany... Gisela McBride shows us that resistance to a fascist regime can take many different and subtle forms. I highly recommend this book for students of all disciplines. -- Ursula Schreffler, Adjunct Instructor in German, Messiah College Gisela McBride...brings several dimensions to the topic of World War II...frequently under represented from the purely American perspective. Such as the general role of women in warfare, the perspective of the enemy civilian, life under a totalitarian dictator, and the impact of warfare on children... -- Tim Neff, Director of Education, Soldiers & Sailors National Military Museum & Memorial
