"Back to Berlin—An Exile
Returns" is a novel about a
German, part-Jewish, who left
his homeland during the Nazi
regime, became a British sub-
ject, kept a secret of his .Ger-
man background, but later. in-
duced by his British wife, re-
turned to Germany and again
made it his home. In the in-
terim, he execoriated the Nazis
and those who followed them.
And in the course of the story,
there is a warning of a resur-
gent neo-Nazism.
Mrs. V. B. Carleton, author of
this novel, published by Little,
Brown & Co. (34 Beacon St.,
Boston 6), renders a service in
her expose of Nazism. Her story
indicates the need of further
education of the Germans and
the constant guard against the
rebirth of the Nazi curse. Al-
though the returning exile,
Erich Dalberg, is a rather weak
character and finally returns to
his native land, he, too, speaks
out on the need to re-educate
the Germans. In the concluding
chapter, which takes the form
of a letter from Erich, he
writes:
"Now that I am a German
again, I can only do everything
possible, in my small way, to
remind people of the need to
understand their past, assimi-
late it and use its lesson in order

to avoid an even more horrible
future." •
There is a chapter devoted to
a visit by Erich to Bergen-
Belsen. Meeting up with area
residents, they hear contemp-
tuous references to the concen-
tration camp, and Erich said to
his companion: "Don't let any-

one ever tell you anti-Semitism
is dead in Germany."

Earlier in the novel, Erich is
told by a Jewish friend in Ber-
lin: "The government is giving
restitution money to rebuild
synagogues—sometimes in com-
munities where there is not a
single Jew left. The Nazis were
so efficient. Now tears can flow,
and voices be raised in repen-
tance, 'How sorry we are—Jews,
come back and all is forgiven—!
But how can you raise six mil-
lion corpses? If you read the
German Press you will find
people proclaiming, 'There is
no lohger anti-Semitism in Ger-
many.' Well, there are no longer
any Jews to hate. That's why."
And so on, down the line,
the evidence is presented—of
crimes under Hitler and the la-
tent anti-Semitism. There are
Christians in the story who
blame themselves for what had
happened, and one of them pro-
claims that "the Nazi regime
constituted the greatest failure
of Christianity in all history.
The attemt to justify bringing
back one of Erich's relatives
from Israel is weakly justified
in the story.
In the main, however, "Back
to Berlin" is an effective expose
of the crimes of Nazism.
