Product description

Review

'The Young Hitler I Knew' is an extraordinary memoir by a man who actually met Hitler in 1904 while they were both competing for a space at the opera. Their mutual passion for music created a friendship, and a roommate situation --Midwest Book Review, October 2006

An invaluable tool for every Hitler scholar; a fascinating portrait for every reader who is interested in Hitler. --Simon Sebag Montefiore

Kubizek's memoir of Hitler was largely written from memory after World War II, and published in German in 1953, which was shortly followed by an abridged English edition. This is the first full translation. Kubizek's book has to be used with some care. Certainly his memory could hardly have allowed him to recount incidents or repeat verbatim talks with Hitler that had occurred forty years earlier. But, as Ian Kershaw points out in his thoughtful introduction, Kubizek almost certainly got the things right in broad outline . . . an interesting look at Hitler's early years --NYMAS Review
