Tim  Pröse - Century Witnesses


Impressive portraits of people who stoof up against Hitler

Resistance fighter or holocaust survivor – the biographies of these special people are deeply impressive. They stood up to Hitler, survived his terror regime and in spite of all this they did not rail against their fate but instead picked themselves up again, faced life positively and said a loud "Yes" to it. This attitude is encouraging in our dealings with terror and war, flight and enforced migration – and indeed, these issues are more pressing today than ever.

Tim Pröse has spent several years regularly meeting some of these last contemporary witnesses and tells here in 18 impressive portraits of their lives and their message. This book is an appeal for more tolerance and against forgetting by individuals who don't swim with the tide.

"One of the most moving books of the year."
