PREFACE AND NOTES BY RICHARD J EVANS / TRANSLATED BY JAMES CLEUGH
The Oppermanns
LION FEUCHTWANGER
A 1933 novel written to alert the world to the dangers of fascism. The reader watches in horror as a law-abiding, kindly, civilised Jewish family is gradually dispossessed of all their certainties, of everything they had owned, of their
life, of their happiness. ’The first great masterpiece of anti-fascist literature, deserves to be as widely read today as it was on its original publication...
a convincing portrait of the variety of German reactions to the rise and eventual triumph of of the Nazis.’
The endpapers feature a rug bought in Germany in 1933 and brought to England by a Jewish refugee
