Aimee & Jaguar: A Love Story, Berlin 1943 by Erica Fischer

ExcerptsA letter from Lilly to Felice, March 31st, 1943 Felice, I love you! What a feeling it is to be able to say that! Oh, Felice, the nicest fate I could hope for is that of lasting happiness. I want to live with you for a long, a very long time, do you hear? And life is so beautiful, so wonderful. Felice, do you belong to me - without limit? To me only? Please say you do, at least for a very long time to come, please! Do you love me? Im acting like a seventeen-year-old, arentt I? Be good to me, Felice, please? And yet please dont hold back. I wanted to lure you out of your hiding place. I am like a child playing with fire; will I get burned? A little? Totally? Felice, stop me! Isnt it just a little bit your fault that Im so crazy, so totally crazy? A poem from Felice to Lilly, Christmas 1943 That there was a time before you - I cant believe! To me, weve forever been this way, Together, side by side in life and in dreams, Surrounded both by darkness and the light of day. You belong to me! Since you arrived, And slowly at first, then full of trust, Placed your heart in my hands, I have strived For the strength to build a life for us. So I have hope for days yet to come, As this year nods and slips into air, Because before me, like some emblem, I carry the copper gleam of your hair. Extract: The Vow January 30th, 1943, the tenth anniversary of Hitlers seizure of power, Hermann Gorings speech to Berliners was delayed for two hours because British scout planes were flying over the city in broad daylight for the first time. Four days after Goring declared his certainty of victory, the remaining German troops trapped in Stalingrad capitulated. Accompanied by funereal music, the defeat was announced on the radio. On February 18th Reichspropaganda minister Goebbels spurred the German people to make a greater effort. In a Declaration of fanatical Will at the Berlin Sportpalast he announced the Salvation of Germany and the whole of civilisation through total war. In memory of the victims of the Russian campaign, a three minute traffic stoppage was declared.
