Text: English, German (translation)From Library Journal:
Engelmann, a prominent West German journalist and author, has summoned his recollections and consulted his interviews over the years to compose this intriguing account. From his schooldays in 1933 through service as a private in the air force to imprisonment in 1944, Engelmann had no affection for the regime, and his role in assisting Jews and others to emigrate left him in difficulties late in the war. The story is hung in loose chronology on Engelmann's autobiography, but it is most engaging for the attitudes, heroism, and folly of the diverse characters (supporters and opponents of the regime are among Engelmann's relatives and friends) in his successive anecdotes. It is only regrettable that he has hurried with verve from one episode to the next. Still, this is a fascinating and moving book. Highly recommended for public libraries. James B. Street, Santa Cruz P.L., Cal.
