Publisher's Summary

That a Jew living in Nazi Berlin survived the Holocaust at all is surprising. That he was a homosexual and a teenage leader in the resistance and yet survived is amazing. But that he endured the ongoing horror with an open heart, with love and without vitriol, and has written about it so beautifully is truly miraculous. This is Gad Beck's story.


What the Critics Say

"So intense and authentic that [the] narrative pulls you along." (The New York Times)
"(Beck's) astute observations of daily life in Nazi Berlin, related in a chatty, humorous style, present a full, complex portrait of the times." (Publishers Weekly)

Great Story - Horrendous Reading

Gad's story is great.

The performer's voice is grating to the nth degree.

As a speaker of German, Hebrew, and French, it was excruciating to me
to encounter each new mispronunciation.

Frankly, a superb story was ruined for me.

When foreign words are so integral a part of the story, one would hope that a narrator with integrity and a modicum of
self-respect would be hired.
