QOTD: "Edgar Feuchtwanger, the son of a prominent German Jewish family with roots in Bavaria going back centuries, vividly remembers nearly bumping into his neighbor Adolf Hitler as a boy...

He now lives in Britain, where his parents were able in 1938 to buy a visa that would save the family’s lives just as the noose was tightening around Germany’s Jews.

Feuchtwanger said his family at first had only an abstract sense of the danger posed to them by the National Socialists and their personable neighbor...

Feuchtwanger believes he as a child had a keener sense of what his thoroughly German Jewish parents and their friends could not believe: that the country they loved would turn on them with such speed, hatred and, finally, blood-lust.

“We were aware of the threat probably even in 1932,” he said, his English still lightly accented by his native German.

But of course we didn’t realize how radical that threat was, how lethal it would get. My father had got that quite wrong.”" --Deborah Cole
