Description: New York, Birch Lane / Carol Publishing. 1990, Book Club Edition. (ISBN: 1559720557) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 338 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). "Bella Fromm (a Jewish reporter) wrote a social column for a liberal Berlin newspaper. Attending luncheons, teas and dinners during the 1930's 'Frau Bella' met everybody of importance and gauged accurately what each person counted for in the developing storm. Among the many German leaders she knew wre General von Hindenberg, Franz von Papen, Goebbels, Goering, Himmler, filmaker Leni Riefenstahl and countless other political and social figures. In this secret journal, smuggled out piecemeal before she left Germany, Fromm describes her experiences and conversations with this cast of characters that would soon play shocking roles in Hitler's Third Reich. The gossip, dark secrets and Nazi maneuverings she discovered or intuited - but never reported in her column - appear here with startling immediacy." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of hinges. Dust jacket has light fading to color on rear hinge/spine area. Near Fine/Very Good.
