Ordinary people, turbulent times

"Life was good, and promising to get ever better for the recently married Dreifuss couple and their young daughter, Alice, living in rural southwest Germany. Then HItler came to power, and their world turned upside down. This vivid biography deals with one of the transforming events of the twentieth century. As happened throughout Germany during the eight years that served as a prelude to the Holocaust, the Nazis turned the Dreifuss family members from valued friends and colleagues of their fellow villagers into an isolated, demonized minority. Even as a small child, Alice felt the impact of Nazi anti-semitism. More importantly, this story shows how strength of spirit and faith enabled the family to remain optimistic and resilient during their struggle to leave Germany and to make new lives for themselves in America"--Page 4 of cover
