An excellent source for small details of how people reacted to the organized state terror of the Nazi regime. Some actually resisted, secretly to avoid being sent to concentration camps or killed. Others saw themselves as small cogs in a big machine, the overall objectives of which they supported. Still others denied knowing anything, although that was clearly impossible.

The sections dealing with Kristallknacht are particularly poignant, including the fate of one relatively low-ranking planner,

The content was absolutely fantastic; this book is a wonderful resource for anyone looking for insight into the cold-sweat-inducing world of Hitler's Germany. Sadly, the style in which this book is written makes it difficult to get through. There is a missing punctuation point on the first page.

It's actually a bit sad to see how poorly translated this book is. It's almost like disrespect. For god's sake, translator people, put some effort into this. This is history, and it's history we ought nev

Pretty interesting read. The author was a teen as the Nazis took over Germany, & he just found himself helping victims of oppression & violence so often that he gradually became involved in the resistance--even while performing mandatory service in the military. The author talks about those days & visits with some of the people he knew back at the time so that we learn what eventually became of them.
Here in this book we encounter the full range of human reactions to the 3rd Reich

An excellent overview of the types of individuals living in Germany during Hitler's reign. Personal narratives ranging from the fearful to the proud to the resistant all tired together in one cohesive storyline following the author. I enjoyed reading it even when I was appalled by the actions of some of the people.

An interesting "inside" story of the Third Reich (rise to fall) from a man who was 13 when Hitler came to power in 1933.

The author was 12 when Hitler came to power, and spent the next 12 years as part of a network that helped Hitler's victims, particularly Jews, to escape. Very well written, incredibly interesting.

This was amazing. It's one of those books that makes history extremely intersting and attainable. Helps you get a real feel from Nazi Germany from a man whol lived through it.
This was a wonderful memoir of youth in Nazi Germany. Filled with engrossing snapshot type memories and first-person accounts.
