Intersecting stories of common citizens, both sinned against and sinning, reveal uncanny, entwined relationships in a nation where no one remains untouched by suspicion and fear, where respectable housewives become informants and saviors, and children become protectors and abusers."--Jacket.
"Amid the routine of daily life - with its flirtations and quarrels, longings and disappointments - the mechanism of persecution spares no one: A renowned opera singer is savagely beaten for suspicion of homosexuality; a mother writes to the Ghetto Administration for a good deal on penknives confiscated from Jewish deportees; a student is tortured by the Gestapo for a vague association with the Young Socialist Workers; a husband files for divorce when his wife shops at a Jewish-owned store.
"The Inventory is an account of the effects of Nazi paranoia upon every segment of German society. Gila Lustiger weaves together the tales of ordinary people swept up in a society where brutal oppression and extermination are everyday events."
