Translated from German

Hans Fallada’s 1947 anti-Nazi classic Every Man Dies Alone

Reading this masterful novel was both painful and exhausting.  Every Man Dies Alone is the story of what it was like to live in Berlin in the early 1940s.  Written by someone who lived through it, the novel shows how everyone suffered under the political system of Nazi rule.
