Rate this:
Baroness Martha von Rosen, a Baltic German aristocrat, and her memories of the last year of the Second World War and the diary of her late husband, Baron J#65533;rgen von Rosen, taken prisoner by the Allied forces during the war, together pay homage to the assertion that history can be a decidedly individual event. Martha von Rosen has written a moving and truly heroic account of her flight from Geppertsfeld, Poland. In his diary, the Baron gives a standing testimonial to the horrors of imprisonment. He chronicles an experience quite foreign to our conventional knowledge of the enemy in the immediate post-war years and the conduct of the Allied forces toward their captives.
