SIX OF THEM by Alfred Neumann


Email this review


A psychological study of the anti-Nazi in Germany today, through an intricately patterned story of six people arrested for distribution of inflammatory anti-Nazi literature in the University of Munich. The story is told in reverse -- as the case of each is revealed from childhood conditioning on, showing the processes by which the Nazi philosophy was forced upon Germany. Tortuously interwoven, as to plot, with a style that is involved and artificial and overladen, this novel has in addition the hurdle to take of inevitable reluctance to concede sympathy to Germans, no matter how victimized. There is much in the story that is revealing -- all ""six of them"" are victims, both in life and death, of Nazi brutality. But their story makes difficult reading.
