Set in Germany and London before and after Hitler's rise to power, this book is written from the perspective of one the members of an underground resistance group in Germany fighting against the regime. A powerful look at the social life of pre-Hitler Germany, when 'speakeasy' bars, free love, and feminism were a part of the culture, is intertwined with the story of an intense attempt to inform the world of the coming horrors of Nazism. When the risk becomes too great for the resistors in Germany, they exile to London to continue their campaign. The cruelty and far-reaching arm of Hitler's supporters and the courage of the resistors stayed with me long after I finished this book. -- Patricia Lyon-Surrey, Bear Pond Books of Montpelier, Montpelier, VT
When Hitler seizes power in 1933, a tight-knit group of friends and lovers suddenly become hunted outlaws overnight. Dora, liberated and fearless; her lover, the great playwright Ernst Toller; Ruth; and Ruth's journalist husband, Hans find refuge in London. There, using secret contacts deep inside the Nazi regime, they take breathtaking risks to warn the world of Hitler's plans for war. But England is not the safe haven they think it will be, and a single, chilling act of betrayal will tear them apart....
Based on true events, All That I Am is testament to some of the earliest—now forgotten—heroes of the resistance to Hitler.
