Not Me

author: Joachim Fest

subject: a chronicle of a German family who lived before, during and after the reign of the Third Reich and who had silently and obstinately opposed it

promising premise: the father had called the children to his study and asked them to take down and remember this maxim: etiam si omnes - ego non! (even if everyone - not me!)

attraction of the book: war chronicles, the interesting predicament of being a German and opposing your own government's Nazi rule (scary!!), and er - did i mention war? hehe, i should grab The Diary of Anne Frank one of these days
