Memoirs of a Jew from Berlin, born as Ruth Schuetz in 1925. Her father, originally from Poland, was arrested by the Gestapo in October 1938 and never returned. During 1939, Usrad and her sisters fled to Belgium; their mother fled to England. Describes the German invasion of Belgium in May 1940, and Usrad's escape to Vichy France with one of her sisters and a group of refugee children. In January 1943 she left the children's home because of the danger of arrest, and wandered through France. Eventually she joined a Jewish underground organization in Grenoble, helping Jews, arranging escapes to Switzerland, and carrying out acts of sabotage. In 1944 Usrad escaped to Spain and emigrated to Palestine. One of her sisters was smuggled into Switzerland by the underground organization, and the other was hidden with non-Jews in Belgium.
