Diary excerpts from a German white-collar worker in a small town who out of relentless curiosity collected and recorded details about the ease of Hitler's consolidation of power, about the pogrom of November 1938 and the wartime atrocities against Jews, Poles and Russians. A telling witness to Richard von Weizsäcker's insistence that all Germans knew something of the persecution of their Jewish neighbors and of wartime atrocities. Disturbing in its very simplicity.
