9780060183509: Aimee and Jaguar: A Love Story, Berlin 1943

In the Berlin of 1942, Lilly Wust was married to a soldier and was the mother of four children. Her quiet domestic life was forever changed when she met and fell in love with Jewish Felice Schragenheim. Aimee and Jaguar, as the two called one another, embarked on an ecstatic affair, exchanging letters and poems and even signing a marriage contract. After only a year, their happiness was destroyed by the Gestapo: Felice was taken away to the Theresienstadt concentration camp. Lilly received a last letter from Felice in 1945. Erica Fischer has documented this extraordinary story after spending countless hours talking to 80-year-old Lilly, and to friends and acquaintances of the two women. Her account, together with a collection of photographs, is a witness to an unusual love in a time of extremes.

Product Description:

A true story of love against all odds, Aimee and Jaguar chronicles the harrowing details of the unlikely romance between Felice Schragenheim, a Jewish resistance worker, and Lilly Wust, the disenchanted wife of a German soldier and mother of four children. Set in Nazi Germany, this story served as the basis for the 1999 Golden Globe Award-nominated film of the same name. A new introduction considers the historic impact the biography and film have had on readers' understanding of lesbianism in Hitler's Germany.
