"...An amazing story....Fascinating..."
Edith Hahn was the wife to notorious nazi war criminal Werner Vetter. A Viennese law student with Jewish ancestry, she had to keep her identity a closely guarded secret through the nazi reign. This is her story, carefully narrated by Susan Sarandon and Julia Ormond, and draws on Hahn's own records, as well as the tales told by her friends and family.
