An Underground Life: Memoirs of a Gay Jew in Nazi Berlin

Front Cover
Univ of Wisconsin Press, 2000 - Biography & Autobiography - 165 pages

That a Jew living in Nazi Berlin survived the Holocaust at all is surprising. That he was a homosexual and a teenage leader in the resistance and yet survived is amazing. But that he endured the ongoing horror with an open heart, with love and without vitriol, and has written about it so beautifully is truly miraculous. This is Gad Beck's story.
