Riassunto: Rising from Rubble...Germany Revisited is the only illustrated history book in English by American GI, Kenneth Weaver, covering the occupation of Germany, 1945-47. It focuses on the rise and fall of Hitler's Third Reich. Life stories of six men and a Jewish woman include the Blitzkrieg of Poland, the fall of France, and Hitler's Final Solution to the Jewish Problem. Vichy France ships teenage Simone Jacob and family from Nice to concentration camps in Poland and Holland. The Allies assault Berlin and the Third Reich is crushed in 1945. British forces rescue Auschwitz survivors, Simone and her sister; parents and brother perished in the Holocaust. 48 rare photos (1945-47) depict the European struggle to survive. Weaver and wife lived in war-ravaged Frankfurt. Weaver is also the author of Barely Flying, and My Friend Max.
From the Publisher: Kenneth Weaver reminds us "the world must not forget the evil of Adolph Hitler and the German Nazi party. Millions of Jews, Polish Christians, gypsies, homosexuals, and "inferior" enemies of the Third Reich were executed." This work poignantly captures the very aura of the time, bringing to life the fears, joys and struggles of human existence in a post-war world. In an age where history is often relegated to a mere factual recitation of events, Rising from Rubble reminds us of the human element inherent in these events. Memoirs such as this are gifts both to us in the present and to our future generations.
