In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin - Erik Larson
Highly entertaining non-fiction that reads like fiction. Accounts of the build-up to hitler's Germany like you're actually there.
I just finished reading the NYT best-seller In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin . It made me think that, notwithstanding Godwin's Law , citizens should continue to be mindful of what can happen in a 'civilized' society.
