Albert Speer : his battle with truth by Gitta Sereny ( Book )
27 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 2,265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We see Speer accused of war crimes at Nuremberg, and during his twenty years in Spandau prison, struggling to accept individual responsibility for his actions. Throughout, in person or in memory, Hitler is startlingly present, his friendship with Speer bordering on love. Sereny shows us Speer as inveterate schemer, as spectacular planner and maneuverer. We see him also as unique among Hitler's men in the integrity of his battle with conscience. His progress from moral blindness through moral self-education to a torturous coming-to-terms with his own acts - this is the elemental matter at the heart of a book that stunningly illuminates the man, the war, the Third Reich, the Nazi mind and the complex comingling, in one person or society, of good and evil
The invisible children : child prostitution in America, West Germany, and Great Britain by Gitta Sereny ( Book )
10 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The invisible world of child prostitution in America, England, and West Germany is fully explored here for the first time. Gitta Sereny's profoundly disturbing book is the result of two years of intensive interviews and research during which she met with, spoke with, and got to know child prostitutes here and abroad as well as their parents, their pimps, their lovers, and the teachers, psychologists, and police who are struggling to help. Writing with a strong commitment to the lives of these children, she gives us in detail the stories of ten girls and two boys. All of them are runaways for whom it was (actually or emotionally) impossible to return to home and family--and for whom the only alternative seemed to be to join "the life" of prostitution. Interwoven with the author's narrative and observations are the voices of the children themselves, who speak with feeling and candor about the homes they fled, and about the life they live now on the street. They discuss their pimps. their "tricks," the ways they were "initiated" into prostitution. They express their feelings about sex and about the future they see for themselves. Sereny makes us understand the horrifying reality of what is happening to children like these by the thousands, why it is happening, and why, walking the city streets, they have nevertheless remained invisible.--From publisher description

The healing wound : experiences and reflections on Germany, 1938-2001 by Gitta Sereny ( Book )
5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The Healing Wound, Sereny presents a vital historical account of Germany in the 20th century, exploring the guilt which is in many ways the legacy of Nazism. She argues that despite the achievements of Germany since 1945, the awareness of the horrors committed in their name remains in the minds of Germans to this day-an open wound of historical culpability. 32 photos. Few individuals have written about the evil forces of Hitler's Germany with the immediacy & urgency of Gitta Sereny. She first encountered the Nazis in 1934 at age eleven when she witnessed a Nuremberg rally, & in 1940 she was in Paris when the Blitzkrieg overran the Allied armies. In 1942, warned of impending arrest for having hidden British pilots, she fled across the Pyrenees. The Healing Wound combines political statement with the haunting personal memories of one of the twentieth century's most relentless witnesses
