"The record of a Mannheim Jewess who managed to stay in the midst of Nazi musical politics until her escape from Germany before the war. Miss Geissmar was secretary of the Berlin Philharmonic. Her book gives an intimate picture of one of Nazi Germany's two world-famed musical figures, Conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler and Thomas Beecham, for both of whom she served as secretary."
