This unpublished memoir from German-Catholic philosopher, Dietrich von Hildebrand, demonstrates his opposition to anti-Semitism, his precient understanding of just how deadly Nazism and Hitler would be, and his courage as he perpared to flee Germany.
Dietrich von Hildebrand was a German Catholic philosopher, theologian, and one of the earliest opponents to anti-Semitism. This memoir offers Von Hildebrand's reflection on this period and provides an extraordinary glimpse into the darkest periods of the 20th century including insight on Eugenio Pacelli (papal nuncio to Germany, later cardinal secretary of state, and ultimately Pope Pius XII). As von Hildebrand later wrote, Pacelli was far from being "soft" on Nazism, and was one of Hitler's fiercest enemies.
