said Hitler told her he
was "half Jewish."
Regina Franken-
feld recalls the Nazi leader had
"something fascinating in
speech and appearance, in his
ability to convince."
The reflections and actions
of German women during
World War II is the focus of the
new Frauen (Rutgers Uni-
versity Press) by TV news
writer Alison Owings of Mill
Valley, Calif.
Ms. Owings, who is fluent in
German, interviewed 29 el-
derly German women for her
book. They included members
of the Nazi Party and of the
Resistance, an anti-aircraft
gunner, a virulent anti-Semi-
te and a teacher.
Frauen focuses on the lives
of the individual women, and
also considers persistent ques-
tions about wartime behavior
in general: What role does an
individual play in the face of a
nationalist regime; if there
were so many Germans who
did not agree with Hitler's
agenda, why was there no up-
rising among the common peo-
ple?
Among the women with
whom Ms. Owings spoke was
Margarete Fischer, whose hus-
band was a leading historian
in Hamburg. Mrs. Fischer told
the author she was Hitler's ide-

al — "blond, with braids, and
tall and slim and lively."
Initially, Ms. Fischer said,
she found Hitler fascinating.
But by 1938 she disassociated
herself from the Nazis, "Al-
though I really don't know
why."

in the new novel With All My
Heart, With All My Soul
(Bosworth Press) by B.D.
Da'ehu.
In With All My Soul, the
character of Christine finds
herself drawn to the very dif-
ferent world of Joshua Elazari,
whom she meets at Princeton
University. Fascinated by Or-
thodox Judaism, she discovers
a whole new world of thought
outside her wealthy, highly cul-
tured and upper-crust home.
Speaking to Christine of his
faith, Josh says it does not de-
velop in a vacuum. It can't
come about of its own — and
when apparently it does, it's not
really faith at all, but a 'feeling.'
`Feelings' have no rational ba-
sis and therefore they have no
claim to validity. True faith is
really an extension of knowl-
edge; at it outer limit knowl-
edge translates into faith — or
belief The difficulty lies in un-
derstanding just how faith is
acquired.
