Nazi Officer's Wife

Nazi Officer's Wife Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 who was later drafted into the Wehrmacht. Narrated by Susan Sarandon, with additional voice talent by Julia Ormond, THE NAZI OFFICER'S WIFE is the unforgettable account of Hahn's life as an Aryan hausfrau and the unique relationship that made it possible. As their daughter says, "Grete, the woman she pretended to be, loved Vetter, but Edith never did." Award-winning filmmakers Rory Kennedy (American Hollow) and Liz Garbus (The Farm: Life Inside Angola Prison) have drawn on interviews with Hahn and her family, along with detailed records she kept throughout the war, to tell this story of survival, resilience and redemption.
