Emmerich, Elsbeth. with Hull, Robert.


Hove, 1st ed., 1991. 96 pp., numerous photo-ills. D.j., 25 x 18cm. FINE. Elsbeth Emmerich was only five years old when the Second World War broke out. While her father was away in the army, sending home letters full of the cold, hunger and boredom of the Eastern Front, her family had to cope with air raids, shortages, and the loss of home and friends. Her ordinary memories of childhood mingle with those of Nazi Germany – of being embarrassed at having to do the Nazi salute in shops, and of her grandfather being taken away by the Gestapo.
