Publisher Description

“An astonishing story of the anti-Nazi resistance—a story of love, incredible bravery and self-sacrifice . . . brilliantly told.” —Antony Beevor, New York Times-bestselling author

 

Harro Schulze-Boysen already had shed blood in the fight against Nazism by the time he and Libertas Haas-Heye began their whirlwind romance. She joined the cause, and soon the two lovers were leading a network of anti-fascist fighters that stretched across Berlin’s bohemian underworld. But nothing could prepare Harro and Libertas for the betrayals they would suffer in this war of secrets—a struggle in which friend could be indistinguishable from foe. Drawing on unpublished diaries, letters, and Gestapo files, Norman Ohler spins an unforgettable tale of love, heroism, and sacrifice in The Bohemians.

“An unforgettable portrait of two young lovers and their circle of friends in the anti-Hitler resistance, The Bohemians offers a fascinating glimpse of life in Nazi Germany, where the simple self-assertion of youth was a political act, and daily life was a minefield where missteps could have fatal consequences.” —Joseph Kanon, New York Times-bestselling author



“A detailed and meticulously researched tale . . . that reads like a thriller.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A taut, absorbing tale of anti-Nazi resistance . . . Sharply drawn characters enliven a tragic history.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Each chapter leaves readers wanting more and rooting for the ill-fated group . . . Ohler’s gifts as a writer shine as he brings to life the personalities, motivations, and machinations of the Red Orchestra.” —Library Journal

“This deeply researched and stylishly written account unearths an appealing yet overlooked chapter in WWII history.” —Publishers Weekly
