Aimee and Jaguar : A Love Story, Berlin 1943
Out of the vacuum created by history's scant attention to Nazi persecution of homosexuals comes a unique and maddeningly tragic story of love between two women of startling contrast. Aimee & Jaguar is the first book of its kind: it tells, through Rashomon-like firsthand accounts, of the horrors - and the joysshared by Felice Schragenheim, who did not survive the war, and Elisabeth Wust, who lived to finally tell their story after more than fifty years of silence. Aimee & Jaguar is set against a compelling historical backdrop of increasing pressure placed on Jews, homosexuals, and non-Aryans in Nazi Germany beginning in the early 1930s.
