Contents.

  • Alone is Berlin begins in 1940. Hitler and his thuggish and cruel dictatorship is flourishing following the fall of France. The city is grim with a populace devoid of all freedoms to dissent. The Jews are in hiding and ordinary Berliners must adhere 100% to the Nazi government or face arrest and possible time in a concentration camp or even execution under the brutal beatings administered by the Gestapo or death by guillotine or hangman's noose.
    Hans Fallada is expert at writing an exciting tragic novel which will awaken readers to what it was like to live in wartime Germany under Hitler and his mad minions of murder. The chief character is Otto and his wife Anna. Otto works in a furniture factory where he makes coffins. His only son is killed in France. Overcome with grief, the stoic Otto and his wife decide to write postcards accusing the Nazis and Hitler of various crimes. The couple will write almost three hundred postcards condemning the regime which they scatter randomly throughout Berlin.They are captured by a clever Gestapo detective who seems to have stepped out of the pages of Dostoyevsky's "Crime and Punishment." Many other characters lives are interwoven into an intricate tale of cat and mouse. Fallada is able to draw three dimensional characters. His own life experience under the "tender" care of the Gestapo makes the book come alive. "Alive in Berlin" is grim reading but shows how important it is to be courageous and bold in the face of tyranny. Though not well known in the United States this book kept me turning the pages. It is a true classic and a witness to the human heart yearning to be free. A great book!

  • An authentic tale of what opportunism and complaisance contributed to the stranglehold Fascism gained during these years. Yet, also a redemptive tale, with people laying down their lives symbolically to show their refusal to accept the horrors of barbaric Europe and its worst inhabitants of the time Can't say I was encouraged, but certainly spellbound and left wondering where my own chahracter would dovetail in times and places like those. Stupendous, experienced writing at its best.

  • How did Germans create Nazi Germany? What made Nazi Germany work? This book goes a long way to assist us in feeling Nazi Germany at the "molecular level". Also the question where were those Germans who saw the folly of the psychology generated by Hitler is addressed. This is done through the stories of a number of individual Berliners interacting to create the oppressive atmosphere imprisoning the souls of Germans in individual prison cells.The courage of those who tried to push away those prison walls however ineffectively is displayed. .

  • This is a book that everyone should read. It's his last book, and it gives chillingly clear insight into the Germany of World War II from the point of view of a regular citizen dealing with Nazis and war. It's the sort of book that opens your eyes and gives you more perspective.

  • The reader could feel the pressure that the average citizen, of The Third Reich, had to endure.

  • This book is cutting. It is filled with muscular prose and the story and its hero and heroine are painted as simple people who have everyday dreams that we all have. I cannot say enough about this book, which I know that I will re-read. Spectacular.

  • A lengthy novel exposing the horrors of everyday life in Nazi Germany. This is a most appreciated writing and I place it next to "In The Garden Of Beasts".

  • Terrific story made better by the fact htat it is true.
