Sanna and her ravishing good friend Gerti could fairly communicate of affection than politics, yet in Nineteen Thirties Frankfurt, politics can't be escaped--even within the lady's toilet. Crossing city one night to fulfill up with Gerti's Jewish lover, a blockade cuts off the women' path--it is the Fürher in a motorcade procession, and the group is going mad striving to seize a glimpse of Hitler's raised "empty hand." Then the parade is over, and within the lengthy hours after middle of the night Sanna and Gerti will face betrayal, demise, and the heartbreaking fact of being younger in an period with out innocence or romance.

In 1937, German writer Irmgard Keun had just recently fled Nazi Germany along with her lover Joseph Roth while she wrote this narrow, beautiful, and devastating ebook. It captures the insufferable pressure, contradictions, and hysteria of pre-war Germany like no different novel. but while it exposes human folly, the e-book exudes a hopeful humanism. it truly is filled with humor and light-weight, whilst it describes the 1st moments of a nightmare. After dead night is a masterpiece that merits to be learn and remembered anew.
