Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
9 Hrs. 8 Min.


A Different Kind of Courage is the spellbinding account of a young woman who witnessed personally Hitler's racist spite at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, and endured the shock of the disappearance of her best friend and her family during Kristallnacht, the night of atrocities against the Jews.

She allied herself to the German resistance fighters, passing on secrets learnt from her work on the Enigma decoding machines, and she received all the conflicting messages coming in on the day of the attempted assassination of Hitler in 1944 by Stauffenberg and his co-conspirators, many of whom she knew personally.

Destined to be a classic in the tradition of The Diary of Anne Frank, A Different Kind of Courage is a story of indomitable spirit and determination that will inspire and enthral.
