Reviews

"The title says it all. A young Jewish boy growing up in Munich in the 1930s, Feuchtwanger writes about living across the street from Hitler, the future mass murderer he could see through his window." --New York Times Book Review

"Composed of diaristic vignettes, Hitler, My Neighbor offers a singular portrait of 1930s Germany, unique both for its intimate glimpses of Hitler in semi-private moments and for its point of view. The narrative unfolds from a child's perspective but benefits from an adult historian's attention to detail." --Newsweek

"He can't wrap his mind around the contradictions, but neither can many adults. Illuminating how it was possible for so many to be so confused is the book's great achievement." --The New Yorker "Remarkable." --Minneapolis Star Tribune "An intimate look at the horror wrought by Hitler." --Kirkus Reviews "Feuchtwanger is an excellent writer. He wisely focuses on the senses, an especially significant technique for authors of childhood experiences. He sees the world through the eyes of a child, yet delivers from the aspect of an adult trained in writing history. The result is an exceptionally powerful and emotionally charged story." --New York Journal of Books "Hitler, My Neighbor is a rare look at the conflicted, often horrifying childhood of a Jewish boy in Nazi Germany." --Book Reporter "Edgar Feuchtwanger's captivating memoir brings an enigmatic and terrifying neighbor--glimpsed through a child's eyes--into the heart of a Jewish family's home life, where discussions revolve around how to make sense of Germany's descent into fascism and, ultimately, how to survive it." --Despina Stratigakos, author of Hitler at Home
