When Red Army soldiers discovered the Arndt and Lewinsky families in Berlin in April 1945, there were seven survivors - the largest known group to have lived throughout the Second World War at the heart of the Third Reich. Rather than risking so-called 'resettlement', the four members of the Arndt family had disappeared in January 1943, later being joined by three friends. Finding themselves in a shadowy underworld, they had to survive without identity cards, ration books or any kind of secure accommodation. And yet, with the help of non-Jews, they did survive. Erich Arndt and his wife Ellen (nee Lewinsky), now living in the USA, here reveal their story in detail for the first time. They have long believed that the world should be told that anti-Semitism was not as ubiquitous as has been previously supposed. The Arndts recall at least fifty ordinary Germans who risked their very lives to give assistance and want to leave a public record as a memorial to these extraordinary acts of bravery and kindness.
