Abstract

In acclaimed German novelist Hans Fallada’s memoir A Stranger in My Own Country: The 1944 Prison Diary, we are exposed to the author’s life under Nazi rule during his three month stay at Neustrelitz-Strelitz. Alexander Blanchard writes that ‘what makes this diary such a good read is the almost pig-headed eagerness with which Fallada … locks himself into a battle of attrition with the Nazi party, its petty dignitaries and scheming bureaucrats.’
