This volume is the story of a historian, Mark Roseman, and his relationship with Marianne Ellenbogen (nee Strauss) - an elderly Liverpool resident with a remarkable past. This chance meeting between an expert on Germany and a survivor of the most terrible event in Germany's history had an impact that neither party could have anticipated. Roseman interviewed Marianne Ellenbogen several times about her experiences, but then - after Marianne's death in 1996 - he found himself with access to a vast range of papers secreted in their house - photos, diaries, letters. This book is about the extraordinary physical and emotional journey these papers provoked -it is a detective story, a love story, a story of great courage and survival under impossible conditions. Drawing on interviews with those who knew Marianne, on countless papers and on Roseman's wider knowledge of the Third Reich, this story s also about a historian's investigation into the nature of memory - about a past that remained "in hiding" for more than 50 years.

Mark Roseman is Senior Lecturer in History at Keele University. His book on the Wannsee Conference: The Villa, the Lake, The Meeting will also be published by Penguin Press in June 2001.Review:
"* "The Past in Hiding" is as raw as history, as subtle and fascinating as a fine novel, and as mysterious as life" Stanley Hoffman * "This is one of the most compelling Holocaust stories I have read...it is not just her [Marianne's] story that is fascinating, but the way that Mark Roseman tells it. He never writes as an impartial observer, but allows his analysis to inform the story. This sense of the author as modern commentator lends to a picaresque history a very special importance." Julia Pascal, The Independent."
