Api's Berlin Diaries. My Quest to understand my Grandfather's Nazi Past

Adult; Memoir; (Market)

“This is not a book I will forget any time soon. The story and the questions stay with me.” Story Circle Book Reviews Moving and provocative, Api’s Berlin Diaries offers a personal perspective on the fall of Berlin 1945 and the far-reaching aftershocks of the Third Reich. After her mother’s death, Robinson found her grandfather’s diaries and discovered that he had been a member of the Nazi party. Her memoir juxtaposes her grandfather’s harrowing account serving as doctor in the ruins of Berlin with her memories of his loving protection after the war and raises disturbing questions about the political responsibility we all carry as individuals. "Robinson's honesty, courage, and intelligence are crucial in coming to grips with questions of political responsibility and collective guilt." Helen Fremont, author of The Escape Artist and After Long Silence
