Class of '31 : A German-Jewish Émigré's Journey Across Defeated Germany (Paperback) (Walter
About this item
"Class of ’31" is a beautifully written memoir from Walter Jessel, a German Jew determined to answer the question that haunted him since emigrating to the United States in 1938: “Would the people of other nations, if they were placed in the same position as the German during the ****** regime, behave in the same manner?” Born in 1913 in Frankfurt, Jessel led an extraordinary twentieth-century life on three continents. In 1945, Jessel returned to Germany as an American soldier and sought out his former classmates, hoping to understand how they survived, or thrived, in ****** Germany. Incredibly personal and honest, "Class of ‘31" is a valuable primary source for anyone interested in the history of German Jews.
