An Underground Life: Memoirs of a Gay Jew in Nazi Berlin

by Gad Beck
£15.95   paperback  University of Wisconsin Press (2000)

An Underground Life: Memoirs of a Gay Jew in Nazi Berlin by Gad Beck That a Jew living in Nazi Berlin survived the Holocaust at all is surprising. That he was a homosexual and a teenage leader in the resistance and yet survived is amazing. But that he endured the ongoing horror with an open heart, with love and without vitriol, and has written about it so beautifully is truly miraculous. This is Gad Beck's story.

"An extraordinary tale. . . . Beck's stories of secret meetings, backstabbing betrayals and Nazi interrogations are the stuff of spy novels—only here they are real, with a hauntingly young protagonist"
(Wayne Hoffman, Washington Post)
