Summary: "The ... story of the author's aunt--a Jewish dance instructor who was betrayed to the Nazis by the two men she loved, yet managed to survive World War II by teaching dance to the SS at Auschwitz. Her epic life becomes a window into the author's own past and the key to discovering his Jewish roots"--Dust jacket flap.
