In Berlin of 1942, Lilly Wust was married to a soldier and the mother of four children. Her quiet domestic life was forever changed when she met and fell in love with Jewish Felice Schragenheim. Aim e and Jaguar, as the two called one another, embarked on an ecstatic affair, exchanging letters and poems and even signing a marriage contract. After only sixteen months, their happiness was destroyed by the Gestapo: Felice was taken away to the Theresienstadt and Gross-Rosen concentration camps. Lilly received a last letter from Felice in 1945: 'A thousand thanks for everything and think of me always. That will help because I'm still outside and it's minus 15 here. I love you very much. Kisses, kisses, kisses, from Jaguar.' Erica Fischer has documented this extraordinary story after spending countless hours talking to the eighty- year-old Lilly, and to friends and acquaintances of the two women. Her account, together with a remarkable collection of photographs, is an unforgettable witness to an unusual love in a time of extremes.
