When Time Stopped: A Memoir of My Father’s War and What Remains
by author Ariana Neumann
Of thirty-four Neumann family members, twenty-five were murdered by the Nazis. One of the survivors was Hans Neumann, who, to escape the German death net, traveled to Berlin and hid in plain sight under the Gestapo’s eyes. What Hans experienced was so unspeakable that, when he built an industrial empire in Venezuela, he couldn’t bring himself to talk about it. All his daughter Ariana knew was that something terrible had happened. "When Time Stopped" is an unputdownable detective story and an epic family memoir, spanning nearly ninety years and crossing oceans.
