Klemperer, Victor - The Diaries of Victor Klemperer :I Shall Bear Witness 1933-1941, To the Bitter End 1942 - 1945 - ( Item 117187 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2006. First Thus. 2 Fine Hardbacks. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine slipcase. Slight marks to panels of slipcase. Illustrated by Reginald Piggott. Victor Klemperer kept a diary, which, from 1933 through the end of the war, provides an exceptional historical and humane account of day-to-day life under the tyranny of the Third Reich. Chiefly, Klemperer's diary chronicles the daily life of restricted Jews during the Nazi terror, including the onset of a succession of prohibitions concerning many aspects of everyday existence (e.g., finances, transportation, medical care, the maintenance and use of household help, food and diet, and the possession of appliances, newspapers, and other items). Particularly harrowing are accounts of 'suicides', household searches, and evacuations of friends, mostly to Theresienstadt. In one May 1942 passage, the Klemperers are forced to put down their household cat, a tomcat named Maschel, because of a restriction on pets. In addition, the diary hints at the profound paucity of information Klemperer and his fellow victims had available to them concerning the nature of atrocities being conducted in places such as Theresienstadt following transports and evacuations.
