His daily record comments on beatings, thefts, marital relations, wages and prices. A detailed account is given of corrupt officialdom and police brutality, of the hatred inspired by collaborators and the solace brought by religion and the kindliness of neighbours and clergy. Above all, he conveys the emotional dimensions of the experience and the gradual degeneration of the human spirit." - dust jacket. Book clean and unmarked with light wear.
