A Woman in Berlin: Eight Weeks in the Conquered City: A Diary by Anonymous
A Woman in Berlin: Eight Weeks in the Conquered City: A Diary

alpinebixby, August 3, 2010

I have such a complex relationship with this book. It breaks my heart to know the extent of bleakness a person can endure. I also find this story comforting, as it contains almost every story my Grandmother told me--verbatim--about WWII whilst I was growing up, and it brings her back to me. Several times I had to wonder whether she was the author, the stories are so identical. My kids will be able to hear their Great-Grandmother's words tell them the same stories, in effect, although she has passed, and although life has exponentially driven itself into the future since those days--even since MY days--which makes WWII seem improbably distant. I thank God that this book was republished so the knowledge continues to be passed on in history.
