Chapter Summary

This chapter begins in the darkness of Nazi Germany. The autumn of 1934 was extremely disturbing; at the time Daan Frank was looking around in the Akademische Verlagsgesellschaft in Leipzig, as he was later to write. This 21-year-old young man from the Netherlands was on a work placement. He was already determined to become a publisher and hoped to learn a great deal at the Akademische. However, as the son of a Jewish father he knew very well that it was important that he looked like a typical German from the north, for this had been explained to him by the 'race theoreticians' in Leipzig.

Keywords: Daan Frank; Nazi Germany; North-Holland
