Summary
In this memoir, Walter Meyer leads readers from one harrowing moment to the next as he recounts his experiences during and after Hitler's reign. As a teenager, Meyer refused to conform to institutional rules. While serving in the Hitler Youth, he rebelled by joining a subversive group that focused its efforts on pranks against the youth organization. During World War II, Meyer was arrested, interrogated, and beaten for stealing shoes, but he received a sentence of one to four years, as opposed to the standard penalty for looting - death. His fiery spirit eventually landed him in a Nazi work camp. Forced to work under grueling conditions in a quarry, he struggled to reach his daily work quota so he could dine on watery broth and bits of bread
