Promotional Information

'A quiet, proud, often painful, always clear-eyed memoir... It deserves wide attention in the English-speaking world. It is illuminating of the man, of the times he lived through, and also of a rare kind of moral resolve, both sobering and inspiring.' Rachel Seiffert, Guardian

Reviews

Exceptional... it tells in a modest, believable, quietly bitter and totally proud way of a family's extraordinary decency... Strong and unique * New York Times * Moving... A tribute to those qualities of civic responsibility, courageously represented by Fest and his family, which the Nazis came near to eradicating... His writing has the quietness of chamber music, so that his louder images are all the more rending -- Nicholas Shakespeare * Daily Telegraph * A remarkable document of a childhood and young manhood spent outside the sphere of normal life * Sunday Times * A heroic interrogation of Germany's past * Sunday Telegraph * Fest's accounts of being called up, of trying to avoid military service, fighting, seeing comrades die, and beinig caught and kept as a prisoner of war are engrossing * Independent on Sunday *
