Berlin 1942. Lilly Wust, 29, was married, had four children, and led a life as did millions of German women. But then, she met the 21-year-old Felice Schragenheim.

It was love almost at first sight. Aimée (Lilly) and Jaguar (Felice) started forging plans for the future. They composed poems and love letters to each other and wrote their own marriage contract. When Jaguar admitted to her lover that she was Jewish, this dangerous secret drew the two women even closer to each other. But their luck didn't last. On August 21, 1944, Jaguar was arrested and deported.

At the age of 80, Lilly Wust told her story to Erica Fischer, who turned it into a poignant testimony. After the book appeared in 1994, Erica was contacted by additional contemporaries of Aimée and Jaguar who offered new material that has been integrated into the present edition.
