"[Kollwitz's] diary and letters . . . provide a dramatic record of German history during the turbulent time that encompassed World War I, the November Revolution, the Weimar Republic and the appearance of Nazism. To these, Kollwitz grants a compassionate, critical, and insightful vision, recording her own witnessing of historical events, her own experience of the everyday in a testimony which is generally recognized as one of the greatest autobiographical German texts of the century. . . . As human documents they have few equals; as historical documents, they are fundamental."
