From Our Editors

1935 Germany. It was a horrible time to be in Germany, but even more dangerous for a young Englishwoman living amidst the Nazis. And although her new husband was German by birth, the couple was not immune to the cultural and political upheaval sweeping across Europe. They endured, and their experiences come to light in a compelling memoir that is a testament to mortal courage and a documentary of one of the most deplorable moments in history.

Editorial Reviews

"Her survival is miraculous. . . But even more miraculous is the tale she spins. . . . What makes When I Was a German such a stunning memoir is the fact that Christabel Bielenberg comes across as a fine, thoughtful, sometimes funny, always questioning person. . . . This kind of story-telling seems to be almost unheard of in the modern-day book biz. I know of maybe twenty-five works that have come to us over the years that have such a stunning story to tell, told so stunningly. Now it's twenty-six."—Lolita Lark, The Review of Arts, Literature, Philosphy, and the Humanities - Lolita Lark - The Review of Arts, Literature, Philosphy, and the Humanities
