Om My German Question
';Not only a memoir, it's also a fierce reply to those who criticized German-Jewish assimilation and the tardiness of many families in leaving Germany' (Publishers Weekly). In this poignant book, a renowned historian tells of his youth as an assimilated, anti- religious Jew in Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1939';the story,' says Peter Gay, ';of a poisoning and how I dealt with it.' With his customary eloquence and analytic acumen, Gay describes his family, the life they led, and the reasons they did not emigrate sooner, and he explores his own ambivalent feelingsthen and nowtoward Germany its people. Gay relates that the early years of the Nazi regime were relatively benign for his family, yet even before the events of 193839, culminating in Kristallnacht, they were convinced they must leave the country. Gay describes the bravery and ingenuity of his father in working out this difficult emigration process, the courage of the non-Jewish friends who helped his family during their last bitter months in Germany, and the family's mounting panic as they witnessed the indifference of other countries to their plight and that of others like themselves. Gay's accountmarked by candor, modesty, and insightadds an important and curiously neglected perspective to the history of German Jewry. ';Not a single paragraph is superfluous. His inquiry rivets without let up, powered by its unremitting candor.' Los Angeles Times Book Review ';[An] eloquent memoir.' The Wall Street Journal ';A moving testament to the agony the author experienced.' Chicago Tribune ';[A] valuable chronicle of what life was like for those who lived through persecution and faced execution.' Choice
