This historical document is a rare and timely glimpse from within Germany into the rise and collapse of a government based on lies, armed terror, and nationalist incitements to hatred. Elisabeth Hoemberg (née Sims) was born in Canada of English-Canadian parents and, after graduating from the University of Toronto, she studied and traveled in France and Germany. In 1938 she married an anti-Nazi German historian, Dr. Albert Hoemberg of Münster, and went with him to Germany. The war overtook them, and early in 1940 her husband was called up to the Luftwaffe. The book, first published in English in 1950, consists of extracts from their journals, and letters which passed between them from 1940 to 1946, until Albert was released from Allied imprisonment in France. The book was recently published as “Dein Volk, Mein Volk” in German translation, and accompanies Albert Hoemberg’s “P.O.W.: A Toilet Paper Diary”, recently published online.
