Berlin at War

Roger Moorhouse
Daniel Silver
Ben Barkow

Roger Moorhouse’s bird’s eye-view of life in Berlin under Nazism using memoirs, diaries and interviews charts the violent humbling of a once-proud metropolis: the fear, the cruelty, the petty heroism and the individual tragedy. Daniel Silver retraced the amazing story of the Jewish Hospital, which miraculously functioned throughout the war. They told Ben Barkow some of the amazing stories they discovered.

Roger Moorhouse wrote several books with Norman Davies before publishing his much translated Killing Hitler in 2006. Berlin at War: Life and Death in Hitler’s Capitalis recently published.

Daniel Silver retired as a partner in an international law firm. He also served as General Counsel of the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency.

Ben Barkow is Director of The Wiener Library and the author of Arthur Wiener and the Making of the Holocaust Library.
