Some Girls, Some Hats, and Hitler - Trudi Kantor

This memoir of the highs and lows of Europe during the holocaust, as told by a Jewish milliner and her glamorous husband forced to become refuges and outlaws, is entirely unique. Trudi Kantor was a beautiful, Jewish business woman in Vienna being courted by the suave Walter as Europe began to tremble with the weight of the Second World War. The memoir begins with girlish recollections of first love and becomes a blisteringly true account of a life lived with no regrets. Trudi is an unblushing narrator, speaking in pure, short sentences and justifying none of her opinions. Written before memoirs, female fashion icons, or first-hand survivor accounts were in vogue, the book disappeared and was only given a proper publication in 2012. Read it and be grateful Trudi’s clear voice was rediscovered.
