Gellichsheimer, Ivy Hilda (1917-)
From the South Seas to Hitler, by Ivy Carl [Pseud. ]
New York, E. P. Dutton & Company, Inc, New York, 1936. B000XJLKJ8 pp. [8], 9-283. "This strangely fascinating book divides itself into two parts: first, the autobiography and travelogue of a young girl [the daughter of a WWI German spy] who spent her childhood on the South Sea island of Nuifuti and travelled widely; and the second, a searching, personal study of the German Nazis and the Hitler regime. Miss Carl was sixteen and attending school in Munich when the Nazis came in power. She witnessed the brutal persecution of Jews and Communists. Disillusioned with the country and her work, she was only too glad to leave at the end of the school term." - dust jacket. Small patch of beige tanning atop pages 62-63 from a newsprint bookmark, otherwise pleasingly clean and tight with light wear to publisher's decorated wheat-coloured cloth. Average wear to dust jacket now preserved in archival-grade Brodart. A high-quality copy of this valuable account of "the influence of nationalism as mobilized by Hitler on impressionable youngsters, and the widespread resentment in Germany toward the Treaty of Versailles." - Madden p.103. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
