Product Description & Reviews
In 1938 Edith Hahn was a Viennese law student a "Christmas-tree Jew" with a gentile boyfriend. In 1942 she was living under an assumed name in Munich married to Werner Vetter a Nazi party member who was later drafted into the Wehrmacht. Based on Hahn's acclaimed memoir THE NAZI OFFICER'S WIFE is the riveting account of how she survived the Holocaust by posing as an Aryan hausfrau. Despite the risks she kept painstaking records including real and falsified documents and photos of labor camps. These moving artifacts along with testimony from Hahn and her daughter bring this tale of survival resilience and redemption to life. Made by award-winning filmmakers Rory Kennedy (American Hollow) and Liz Garbus (The Farm: Life Inside Angola Prison) THE NAZI OFFICER'S WIFE is narrated by Susan Sarandon with additional readings by Julia Ormand. DVD Features: Interactive Menus; Scene Selection The most melodramatic Hollywood screenwriter could not concoct a tale as full of dramatic reversals, conflicted characters, and astounding coincidences as the story of Edith Hahn, an Austrian Jew who eluded Nazi oppression by going underground as an Aryan woman in the heart of Germany. When a Nazi factory manager named Vetter proposes to her after they've only known each other a few weeks, she confesses her true identity--and he marries her anyway. Her "U-boat" existence becomes an even more complicated masquerade when Vetter is drafted into the Nazi army and becomes an officer. The Nazi Officer's Wife lays out the story with clarity and compassion, with all its contradictions and glimpses of human goodness, in the face of monstrous evil, intact. The details of Hahn's life are simply amazing. Interviews with Hahn, her daughter, and other survivors give full dimension to the events. --Bret Fetzer
