One of the great German Expressionist artists, Kaethe Kollwitz wrote little of herself. But her diary, kept from 1900 to her death in 1945, and her brief essays and letters express, as well as explain, much of the spirit, wisdom, and internal struggle which was eventually transmuted into her art.

"An unforgettable experience." --New York Times Book Review

"A valuable and readable work." --Los Angeles Times Book Review

"[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 As human documents they have few equals; as historical documents, they are fundamental."

--Reinhold Heller
