``In heartbreaking detail, Natascha Wurzbach recounts what it was like to grow up in 1930s Germany as the sensitive, lonely daughter of intellectual parents, on the run from the Nazi regime that her father openly criticized. Whether she is telling us about her family's attempt to conceal their Jewish origins, the unexpected gift of getting to live in the Bavarian countryside when she was very young, or the pain of finding (and losing) young love, Wurzbach reveals herself to be a master storyteller as she recounts the violence of the Nazi regime in the everyday life of dissenting Germans.'' -- Julie Rak, Department of English and Film Studies, University of Alberta
