by | Read by Robert Whitfield [Simon Vance]

Biography & Memoir • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

“Living with teeth clenched” is how the author describes his existence in Germany during the rise of Nazism. As a non-Jewish citizen and a lawyer, his observations of the changes that took place in German society between his youth and the Third Reich’s rise to power allow listeners to realize--by means of an intelligent mind--how it transpired. An aristocratic-sounding British reader for a German author begs our credulity. Furthermore, Robert Whitfield’s dull monotone and long pauses at the end of each sentence don’t add the needed color. Expect not to be entertained or spellbound but rather to gain a perspective unavailable from other WWII memoirs. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 04]
