Main description:

An “instantly mesmerizing” (Oprah.com) and “valuable piece of social history” (Chicago Jewish Star)—the astonishing memoir of a “vivid, tenacious, and absolutely unforgettable” (Bookreporter.com) woman whose courage and resourcefulness kept her and her beloved safe after the Nazis invaded Austria.

Vienna, 1938: Trudi Kanter, stunning, chic, and charismatic, is a renowned hat designer for Europe’s stylish women. She frequents the most elegant cafés, flies to Paris for fashion shows, and has fallen in love with a handsome businessman. “We were young and the world was ours,” she writes. But in the blink of an eye, Hitler comes to power and Kanter’s world collapses. She and her family embark on “an incredible odyssey” (Booklist) across Europe, desperate to escape Nazi-occupied Austria.

Nearly fifty years later, Kanter wrote her own harrowing story and published Some Girls, Some Hats, and Hitler in 1984. After her death, the book went out of print and this extraordinary true tale was lost until a British editor rediscovered it in a used bookshop. Now in paperback, we are again given the chance to read this remarkable “memoir of an era that must not be forgotten” (Shelf Awareness)—a book that has been described as both “a matter-of-fact description of menace and impending danger” (The Wall Street Journal) and “a poem of love” (Chicago Jewish Star).

Review quote:

“In a rediscovered memoir, the charmed life of designer Trudi Kanter is split open as the Nazis claim Vienna and terror reigns. Every Holocaust story is worth remembering, and Trudi's is unique—she refuses to lose her vision of what the world should be at its very best: a place of red roses, Paris avenues, and above all else, true love.” —Alice Hoffman

Review quote:

"A fascinating romance, a tribute to the love that beat Hitler." --Daily Post

"A fascinating romance, a tribute to the love that beat Hitler."

Review quote:

"Distilled through the lens of a sartorial dignitary, Some Girls, Some Hats and Hitler offers an illuminating chronicle of narrow wartime escapes, calamity, and ingenuity. What makes this account all the more revealing is its candor regarding the persistence of mortal tendencies amid even the most disastrous of situations. Sometimes there is vanity, sometimes jealousy, and often, in the most unexpected of places, beauty of both the aesthetic and human varieties." --Alicia Oltuski, author of Precious Objects

Review quote:

"Nothing undid beauty and romance like the onslaught of World War II. And yet in Trudi Kanter's elegant memoir Some Girls, Some Hats and Hitler love and grace survive the horror in Western Europe.  What an enchanting book. What a gem.  I could not put it down.” --Jennifer Gilmore, author of The Mothers and Something Red

Review quote:

"This Holocaust memoir is more a tale of love than a horror story of Nazi-occupied Europe...the words
and imagery flow beautifully." -Publishers Weekly

and imagery flow beautifully."

Review quote:

Some Girls,Some Hats and Hitler does not minimize the horrors of war or the Holocaust, but through Kanter's delightful hopefulness and spare,riveting writing, it presents an unusual memoir of an era that must not be forgotten.”“With a natural writing style, a talent for re-creating the details of daily life (especially the fashions), Trudi, who died in 1992, comes alive for the reader, creating what becomes a valuable piece of social history. But more than all this, her memoir is a poem of love to her husband, to the cities of Vienna and Paris, and to a way of life that, in the twinkling of an eye, completely disappeared.”
