In the Garden of Beasts:  Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin, by Erik Larson.  In 1933, William E. Dodd becomes America’s first ambassador to Hitler’s Nazi Germany and moves to Berlin along with his wife, son, and flamboyant daughter, Martha. At first Martha is entranced by the parties and pomp of the Reich, but as evidence of Jewish persecution mounts, confirmed by chilling first-person testimony, her father telegraphs his concerns to a largely indifferent State Department back home. In the Garden of Beasts lends a stunning, eyewitness perspective on events as they unfold, revealing an era of nuance and complexity. Copies available at the check-out desk.  Refreshments served.  In the second floor reading area.
