Summary
Piecing together his aunt's wartime diaries, photographs and letters, Paul Galser has reconstructed the dramatic story of a woman who was caught up in the tragic sweep of World War II. Rosie Glaser was a magnetic force - hopeful, exuberant and cunning. By the age of 25, she had lost the great love of her life in an aviation accident, married the wrong man, and sought consolation in the arms of yet another. Then the Nazis seized power. After operating an illegal dance school in her parents' attic, Rosie was betrayed by both her ex-husband and her lover, taken prisoner by the SS and sent to a series of concentration camps. But her enemies were unable to destroy her and, remarkably, she survived, in part by giving dance and etiquette lessons to her captors. Of the 1200 people who arrived with her at Auschwitz, only eight survived. 'Dancing with the Enemy' recalls a life marked by love, betrayal and fierce determination
