Publisher's Summary

Berlin, 1940. The city is paralysed by fear. But one man refuses to be scared. Otto, an ordinary German living in a shabby apartment block, tries to stay out of trouble under Nazi rule. But when he discovers his only son has been killed fighting at the front he's shocked into an extraordinary act of resistance and starts to drop anonymous postcards attacking Hitler across the city. If caught, he will be executed.
Soon this silent campaign comes to the attention of ambitious Gestapo inspector Escherich, and a murderous game of cat-and-mouse begins. Whoever loses, pays with their life.
Every Man Dies Alone was published in the UK as Alone in Berlin.

What was the point?

I have tried to see the deeper meaning of this book. Tried to look for the message or lesson. But there is nothing there. It's just a sad, never ending tale of hopelessness. With no feeling of understanding why these people all went through this endless trauma
