Surviving Hitler: A Love Story

Thirtysome years ago I was ski-mountaineering in Switzerland with, among others, a young couple who were celebrating their graduation from law school. I saw Eddie and Claudia occasionally thereafter, and once or twice met her mother at their house. Now I discover that this lovely woman was born in Germany, by Reich laws a Jew, and that not only did she survive the war but married a German soldier who toward the end became involved in the plot to kill Hitler--and that he too survived! Their remarkable story is the subject of a short film, Surviving Hitler: A Love Story, now going the art-house and prize-competition rounds. It will be released on DVD in March. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
