Gone to Ground is derived from the tape recordings Hermann Simon made of his mother, Marie Jalowicz Simon, who survived the Second World War by throwing away her yellow star and going to ground. The memoir, translated into English by Anthea Bell, is a German bestseller. Dr Simon, who is director of Berlin’s New Synagogue, will talk about his mother’s extraordinary story with journalist Henrietta Foster.
