Here is the eagerly awaited second volume of Victor Klemperer's acclaimed memoir, I Will Bear Witness: A Diary of the Nazi Years, 1941-1945. A Jew married to a Christian woman, Klemperer was able to avoid deportation; although incarcerated in a forced labor camp for more than a year, he escaped during the Dresden bombing which is dramatically described. His books are certainly among the most outstanding of Holocaust literature for their meticulous observation of daily life in Hitler's Germany. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones
