  • Painshade
This book should be an obligatory reading in all of Western Europe, where people need a little bit more if an understanding how their current economic system came into being. It is exactly thanks to people like Toller, who risked their lives and went through countless trials and tribulations that Western Europeans today can take a vacation three times a year, enjoy free healthcare, pensions and other benefits.
For me, it was a book that told a largely forgotten story of the state of chaos in Germany, following the collapse of the Prussian Empire.
There are also some unforgettable, masterful passages in this book that relate to the First World War.
  • Felolune
This book is simply unforgettable. A poet, political activist, leader of Bavaria, prisoner, and a real Mensch. That he is a Jew is ironic, and somehow both central and immaterial.
Even in the midst of violent turbulence, he remembers details of human kindness and simple beauty. I've not read his poem Sparrow Song, but it's next on my list.
An unjustly forgetten man, a reminder of the post WWI chaos that, sadly, lead to the rise of Nazism.

Wonderful hardcover version of this book. Pages were crisp and new.
