A Jewish-Norwegian girl, Betzy Rosenberg, managed to hide from the German and Norwegian Nazis in Trondheim from the fall of 1942, when the deportations began, all the way until the war ended in May of 1945. She survived right in front of the enemies' noses thanks to a fellow human being who risked his life to hide her.
In the cabin next door, the Nazis were having parties, and Henry Rinnan himself – the leader of the infamous Rinnan Gang – could show up unannounced. Adolescence lost and the rest of her family deported to the concentration camp Auschwitz, this is Betzy's story.
Impressive about "the Norwegian Anne Frank"
‘The Girl in the Wall is grim reading. At it´s best, the book breathes life into history
and remind us that not to long ago people, not unlike us self, where defined as
unwanted and sent to destruction based on their religion and cultural heritage.’
‘Lindahl is thorough and talented with great insight into topics like Hitler’s
coming to power, The Crystal night, the start of the war, Norwegian Nazis,
concentration camps and the fall of Germany.’
‘An almost unbeleivable story about how a young Norwegian woman, Betzy
Rosenberg, was hidden from sight from the fall of 1942 and all the way up to
the liberation day in 1945.’
