Summary "Originally published in Germany in 1997, Lotte Strauss's Over the Green Hill: A Personal Memoir, Germany 1913-43 was begun in 1975 as a letter to her daughter. It took twenty years to write the complete story, and by then it was no longer a letter, but a book."--BOOK JACKET. "Lotte Schloss (her maiden name) was born one year before the outbreak of World War I. She spent her formative years in a postwar Germany that grew more and more openly antisemitic."--BOOK JACKET. "The Gestapo came for Lotte Schloss in October 1942 in Berlin; she was to join her parents in a "resettlement" to the "East." Realizing that to comply would likely prove fatal, she escaped with the help of her future husband, Herbert Strauss. After months in hiding, she reached Switzerland in May of 1943 and was reunited with Herbert."--BOOK JACKET
