LIFE DOESN'T JUST GO ON: A HYBRID MEMOIR OF TWO WORLD WARS
This book is based on a German family's letters from both World Wars, their family photographs and stories as related by survivors. It asks how and why members of the same nuclear family--a father, a mother, a son and two daughters--responded to the Nazi era and the wars in completely different ways, and reflects on the effect of these unspoken rifts on the part of the family that survived into the post-war era.
