DIVIDED LIVES


"Impassioned and insightful stories of life in Germany before, during, and after the Nazi years, as told to an accomplished interviewer. Cynthia Crane lends a sympathetic ear to the women she confers with. This makes for a gripping narrative about the 'mixed breed,' the oft-forgotten 'children of the Holocaust.' Divided Lives is a well-written, intelligent must-read."

"I believe in personal testimonies as you do -- they have no equal in their weight of truth and memory."

Elie Wiesel
Nobel Peace Prize Laureate


"Divided Lives, the result of Crane's personal journey as the daughter of a 'Mischling,' goes far beyond her family story to provide poignant insights into the tortured lives of 'Jewish Christians' in Nazi Germany. Through moving interviews with victim-survivors, she demonstrates that although 'the Germans and the Nazis were not synonyms,' the victims' suffered massive pain and agony at the hands of their fellow Germans. Crane allows the voices of the victims to shape their own history, and therefore offers an important contribution to Holocaust studies."

"...deeply human, nonconventional view of the Nazi time and of particular women's destinies. Opens new questions."
