When Berlin Was Just a Shadow of Itself

In a rare work of fiction that attempts to give us a sense of what it was like to be a German woman during World War II, David Gillham offers us a heroine who accepts the moral challenge of being asked to ‘come with me, and I’ll show you what you’ll soon regret seeing’.
