Description:
"This book makes it possible to gain a genuine look at the daily task of survival and at Jewish life in the just about hopeless situation at the edge of the Holocaust."-Der Tagesspiegel

"Vividly written. . . . An excellent antidote to the stereotyping of Germans under these conditions."-George Mosse

That Gad Beck, a Jew in the Berlin of Nazi Germany, lived through the Holocaust at all is surprising. The fact that he lived through it as a homosexual Jew who spent the entire war funneling

It was love that gave him both the impetus and the strength to fight. The rise of National Socialism was tearing his family apart, destroying his school, thwarting his dream of emigration to Israel. Then the Nazis came for Manfred Lewin, Beck's first love, and for his family. Gad's love for Manfred gave him the courage to don a three-sizes-too-large Hitler Youth uniform, march into the transit camp where the Lewins were being held, and demand-and obtain, to his astonishment-the release of his lover. But Manfred would not leave without his family, and so went back into the camp. The Lewins did not survive.

Coming of age as a gay man during the war and maintaining a series of romantic relationships while carrying on his resistance work, Beck reveals a tenacity and irrepressible spirit that is his real legacy. His determination to keep loving, living, and believing in every human possibility without compromise-even in the face of the unthinkably monstrous-makes this quite a different story of the Holocaust.
