Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Gabi, was born Jewish but converted to Christianity in her teens. Her husband is a Lutheran minister who, on one hand is a proud Aryan, but on the other hand, the conflicted father of children who are half-Jewish. Mindful and resentful of her husbands ambivalence, Gabi is determined to make sure her children are educated, devising schemes to keep them in school even after learning that any child less than 100% Aryan will eventually be kept from completing education. She even hires tutors who are willing to teach half-Jewish children and in this way comes to hire Fraulein Kaminsky who shows Gabi how to cure her frustration and rage: to keep her mouth filled with water until the urge to scream or rant has passed.--page 2 of cover.
