Letters of an antifascist: 1945
The text records day to day life under National Socialism as it was experienced by Charlotte Angermann, a resident of Dresden at the end of the Second World War and in the first months after the German capitulation in May 1945. Angermann writes of the bombing of Dresden, the shortages faced by the general population, the deaths of friends and family members and the difficult co-existence with Soviet occupation forces. The diary entries are constructed as an address to her daughter, Marianne Angermann-Bielschowsky, who was at the time in Great Britain where she and her husband, Franz Bielschowsky, worked as researchers with Professor H.N. Green at the University of Sheffield.
