Life Goes On: A NovelRead about another book on the list.
by Hans Keilson
Banned in Nazi Germany in 1934, this autobiographical novel tells the story of a Jewish textile shop owner, Herr Seldersen, and his son, Albrecht, as they struggle with hyperinflation and anti-Semitism during the devastated interwar period in Europe. Delivering a staggering insight into the fragile political infrastructure of a foundering Germany, Keilson helps us understand why Nazism flourished when and where it did, in perhaps the most infamous example of otherwise rational people allowing a madman to rule.
