The Past is Myself & The Road Ahead Omnibus : When I Was a German, 1934-1945 Paperback


"The Past is Myself": Christabel Bielenberg, a niece of Lord Northcliffe, married a German lawyer in 1934.

She lived through the war in Germany, as a German citizen under the horrors of Nazi rule and Allied bombings. "The Past is Myself" is her story of that experience - and an unforgettable portrait of an evil time. "The Road Ahead": Following the extraordinary success of her wartime memoir, "The Past is Myself", Christabel Bielenberg received thousands of letters from readers begging her to describe what happened next.

In "The Road Ahead" she continues her story with the outbreak of peace - a time of struggle for reconciliation with, and the rebuilding of, a defeated nation.

She also tells of life in her newly adopted country, Ireland, her involvement with the Peace Women of Northern Ireland, and with characteristic modesty and gratitude, looks back on a rich, full life.
