Lion Feuchtwanger: Die Geschwister Oppermann
Publisher Introduction: "Lion Feuchtwanger wrote this first novel about the persecution of Jews in the Third Reich in the late summer of 1933, when the possibility of a Holocaust in the enlightened 20th century still exceeded any human imagination."
Verlag Felix Bloch Erben
Thomas Hettche: Herzfaden
"Balance between thorough research and the fantastic make this an exciting read for young and old alike." --Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
