Journal Entry 1 by winginkenwing from Wedding, Berlin Germany on Tuesday, May 28, 2024
Before Hitler took over Ger­many, his breath­tak­ing breach of civ­i­liza­tion was unimag­in­able, unthink­able. Even as the sit­u­a­tion began to click in people’s minds, no one could ful­ly com­pre­hend it, least of all the peo­ple who would soon be sub­ject­ed to it. All fun­da­men­tal civ­il rights were sus­pend­ed just a month after Hitler came to pow­er, trans­form­ing a thriv­ing democ­ra­cy into a vicious dic­ta­tor­ship and deter­min­ing the fate of millions.

Uwe Wittstock’s scin­til­lat­ing new book shows us how Ger­man writ­ers and artists, who were some­times more attuned to polit­i­cal nuance than those in oth­er pro­fes­sions, were among the first to flee their home­land. These first escapees are the sub­ject of Feb­ru­ary 1933, a study that takes us deep into the hearts of the men and women who first tra­versed the razor-sharp edge of life and death, before land­ing, through sheer willpow­er and cal­cu­la­tion, firm­ly on the side of survival.

Witt­stock is a tal­ent­ed Ger­man jour­nal­ist, crit­ic, and award-win­ning author. His book is filled with intrigue, minute-to-minute cat­a­stro­phe, and swift, clean action.

Unsicher. Aber mal reinkucken wollte ich mal, wenn es so lange noch auf dem Tisch lag.
