Albert Speer : his battle with truth by Gitta Sereny( Book )

43 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 2,180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gitta Sereny first saw Albert Speer on trial at Nuremberg. Over the last years of his life she came to know him - through hundreds of hours of conversations - as no other biographer has known a Nazi leader. She interviewed as well the people around him - the celebrated, the notorious and the ordinary. Speer gave Sereny, for her use, a number of unpublished manuscripts, and after his death she obtained access to many of his papers. Out of her probings a huge, and hugely alive, portrait emerges. Sereny takes us through the emotional desert of Speer's childhood and marriage, through his embrace (basically, she demonstrates, for nonideological reasons) of the Nazi Party and his service as Minister of Armaments and Munitions, during which his brutal use of slave labor extended a lost war. She superbly portrays the circles in which Speer functioned: the ambivalent General Staff and the infinitely peculiar and nightmarish upper echelons of Nazism

The invisible children : child prostitution in America, West Germany, and Great Britain by Gitta Sereny( Book )

21 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The invisible world of child prostitution in America, England, and West Germany is fully explored here for the first time. Gitta Sereny's profoundly disturbing book is the result of two years of intensive interviews and research during which she met with, spoke with, and got to know child prostitutes here and abroad as well as their parents, their pimps, their lovers, and the teachers, psychologists, and police who are struggling to help. Writing with a strong commitment to the lives of these children, she gives us in detail the stories of ten girls and two boys. All of them are runaways for whom it was (actually or emotionally) impossible to return to home and family--and for whom the only alternative seemed to be to join "the life" of prostitution. Interwoven with the author's narrative and observations are the voices of the children themselves, who speak with feeling and candor about the homes they fled, and about the life they live now on the street. They discuss their pimps. their "tricks," the ways they were "initiated" into prostitution. They express their feelings about sex and about the future they see for themselves. Sereny makes us understand the horrifying reality of what is happening to children like these by the thousands, why it is happening, and why, walking the city streets, they have nevertheless remained invisible.--From publisher description
The healing wound : experiences and reflections on Germany, 1938-2001 by Gitta Sereny( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Healing Wound, Sereny presents a vital historical account of Germany in the 20th century, exploring the guilt which is in many ways the legacy of Nazism. She argues that despite the achievements of Germany since 1945, the awareness of the horrors committed in their name remains in the minds of Germans to this day-an open wound of historical culpability. 32 photos. Few individuals have written about the evil forces of Hitler's Germany with the immediacy & urgency of Gitta Sereny. She first encountered the Nazis in 1934 at age eleven when she witnessed a Nuremberg rally, & in 1940 she was in Paris when the Blitzkrieg overran the Allied armies. In 1942, warned of impending arrest for having hidden British pilots, she fled across the Pyrenees. The Healing Wound combines political statement with the haunting personal memories of one of the twentieth century's most relentless witnesses
