"Next Door," a novel by Johanna
Moosdorf, translated from the Ger-
man by Michael Glenny, published
by Knopf, has powerful relevance
to the hunt for the Nazi murderers
who have escaped justice and who
must be brought to face the courts
that are trying the murderers.
Johanna Moosdorf, who has held
editorial posts in Germany, author
of five other novels and of sev-
eral plays, was born in Leipzig,
Germany, in 1911 and studied at
Berlin's Humboldt University. She
experienced Nazi persecutions due
to her marriage to a Jew, Paul
Bernstein. Her novels are based
on many personal experiences.
In "Next Door," the title of
which in German was Nebenan,
she deals with the wife of a Nazi
who was given deadly injections
and was committed to an insane
asylum, her husband having aimed
at eliminating her. She survived
but those who sought her as a wit-
ness against her husband, who was
responsible for many murders, fail-
ed to gain her help.
Many interesting characters pass
in review here—including a Jew-
ish sufferer from Nazism who, hav-
ing recognized Dorothea's husband,
suffered a shock and died instantly.
But he had in the meantime ex-
posed the criminal who was pos-
ing under a different name.
The course of events led to
Dorothea's being shaken out of her
lethargy. Her husband fled. But
the point is well made: that the
criminals must be discovered and
brought to justice, that the crimes
must not be hushed up.
Johanna Moosdorf performed her
task of pointing an accusing finger
at the Nazi brutalities with great
