Abstract:

An illustrated biography of Victor Klemperer, composed of excerpts from his diaries accompanied by photographs. Klemperer was born in 1881 in Landsberg, the ninth son of a rabbi. Pp. 95-157 deal with the Nazi period. Klemperer, who had converted to Christianity in 1902 and married a German, was appointed Professor of Romance Languages in Dresden in 1920, but in 1935 he was dismissed from this position. Because of his Aryan wife, he was not deported, but he experienced various aspects of persecution, such as wearing the Jewish star, living in "Jewish houses", and forced labor. When Dresden was bombed in February 1945, the Klemperers went into hiding until the liberation. After the war, Klemperer chose to remain in Dresden.
