It is a diary written between April 20 - June 22 1945, whose author has decided to remain anonymous.
This is a diary - hence self-absorbed - and does not pretend to be anything more.
But because of this, it is dwindles into unimportance: It fails to give a valid broader account of the unfolding events in Berlin. It does not allow a glimpse into other women's experiences and attitudes. Therefore, because of the egocentric view-point, the book soon becomes tedious.
Unfortunately, there is also the danger, that it will serve as a prototype all women in that space and time. The majority of women chose not to accomodate and live off the enemy.
Along with the horrific experiences she recounts, some of the most searing passages are the reflections of her heart and soul. In the original German, they are particularly touching and thought-provoking. Her character, humanity and indomitable spirit transcend the pages that she wrote.
At the end of the nine-week period covered in the diary, I was struck by this true "Triumph of the Will" - the will to survive.
