Publisher's Summary

That a Jew living in Nazi Berlin survived the Holocaust at all is surprising. That he was a homosexual and a teenage leader in the resistance and yet survived is amazing. But that he endured the ongoing horror with an open heart, with love and without vitriol, and has written about it so beautifully is truly miraculous. This is Gad Beck's story.


What the Critics Say

"So intense and authentic that [the] narrative pulls you along." (The New York Times)
"(Beck's) astute observations of daily life in Nazi Berlin, related in a chatty, humorous style, present a full, complex portrait of the times." (Publishers Weekly)

it was okay

more like listening to pieces of a life rather than the story of a life, but it was eye opening as I hadn't realised this aspect of the 2nd WW.

The audio is terrible

The story is great, but ruined by an awful presentation, the editing made it obvious it was recorded in more than one studio, German words not pronounced correctly, I don't know about the Jewish ones.
