Overview


Thousands of Jews and “Aryan” Germans opposed to Hitler led illegal lives under the Nazi terror and survived the relentless hunt of the Gestapo, the concentration camps, and the bombing. They survived in various ways; some as ordinary citizens taking part in the work-day life, others with fake passports, hidden in cellars, living precariously in all the dark corners of a vigilantly policed country. In fourteen autobiographical accounts, author Eric Boehm offers a cross-section of these heroic personalities. We Survived is itself an historical document, giving a window back into this epoch period during World War II.Now reappearing in print over fifty years after its original publication, We Survived remains as relevant and necessary as ever before - an honest testimony to the strength of the human spirit when it triumphs over adversity.

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times
In the testaments of their lives they give the world lessons in humanity and fortitude. These stories of men and women under the lash of that totalitarian state show in terms that everyone can understand the meaning of tyranny.
American Jewish Daily
Undoubtedly this collection of personal stories of men and women under the Nazi terror will take a major place in the history of that horrifying episode…Few fictional adventure and detective stories will prove as personal as any one of these narratives. A book of most fascinating interest, it is also a proof that even a Hitler and his propaganda cannot completely brutalize every member of a great nation.
