Augsburg 1939–1946. Erlebnisse eines Schülers in Krieg und Nachkriegszeit.

Whether the young Hermann is rummaging amongst rubble of the old toy store looking for the long-desired Märklin tracks or whether he is enjoying “Fuggerei” romanticism at his grandparents’ until his grandmother is killed during the bombing of the housing settlement, or he pulls a pillow over his head in a cellar corner or is upset viewing the destruction of the familiar town silhouette from his room’s window – his vivid account allows us to trace what war meant in general and especially in Augsburg.

“The city of Augsburg is the secret leading lady of this book.”
