This final volume of Victor Klemperer's diaries opens in 1945. After the horrors of the war, Victor and Eva's return to their Dresden home seems like a fairytale. Victor tries to resume his distinguished academic career and joins East Germany's Communist Party. In 1951, Eva dies; a year later, aged 70, Victor marries a student--an unlikely but successful love match. But with the growing repression of the Communist Party, and the memory of those who did not survive, Victor's achievements ring hollow. Politics, he comes to believe, is, above all, the choice of "the lesser evil." A masterpiece both of Holocaust literature and memoir.

""Klemperer's diary deserves to rank alongside that of Anne Frank."
The third and final volume of the diaries of Victor Klemperer, Dresden Jew and Holocaust survivor, whose 1933 45 diaries have already been hailed as one of the 20th century s most important chronicles."
