When the famous German author Sebastian Haffner died at age ninety-one in 1999, a manuscript was discovered among his unpublished papers. Spanning the years 1907 to 1933, it offers a compelling eyewitness account of the rise of Hitler and Nazism. He describes his family's financial struggles during 1923, when inflation devastated the country, and the Stresemann years that contributed still further to Hitler's rise to power. He also examines the pervasive influence of such groups as the Free Corps and the Hitler Youth movement that swept the nation. Haffner elucidates how the average educated German grappled with a rapidly changing society, while chronicling day-to-day changes in attitudes, beliefs, politics, and prejudices.
