Críticas:

"Let Anonymous stand witness as she wished to: as an undistorted voice for all women in war and its aftermath, whatever their names or nation or ethnicity. Anywhere."--"Los Angeles Times"
"Its reissue . . . in a new (and better) translation by Philip Boehm, is cause for celebration. . . . It is a richly detailed, clear eyed account of the effects of war and enemy occupation on a civilian population. . . . [Anonymous] has given us something that transcends shame and fear: the ability to see war as its victims see it."--Joseph Kanon, "The New York Times Book Review"
"Brutally observed . . . a riveting account of a military atro- city . . . she doesn't try to explain or moralize the horror. She simply records it as perhaps no one else has, in all of its devastating essence."--"The New York Observer"
"An astonishing record of survival . . . a fresh contribution to the literature of war . . . the voice of Anonymous emerges as both shrewd and funny. A"--"Entertainment Weekly"
"A brilliant and powerful work."--"Newsday"

"A devastating book. It is matter-of-fact, makes no attempt to score political points, does not attempt to solicit sympathy for its protagonist, and yet is among the most chilling indictments of war I have ever read. Everybody, in particular every woman, ought to read it."--Arundhati Roy, Booker Prize-winning author of "The God of Small Things"
"A tract essential for our often morally fuzzy times . . . It is destined to be a classic."--"San Francisco Chronicle"

"A richly detailed, clear-eyed account of the effects of war and enemy occupation on a civilian population . . . She has written, in short, a work of literature, rich in character and perception."--Joseph Kanon, "The New York Times Book Review" "Her journal earns a particular place in the archives of recollection. This is because it neither condemns nor forgives: not her countrymen, not her occupiers, and not, remarkably, herself. . . . Stands gritty and obdurate among a swirl of revisionist currents that variously have asserted and disputed the inherent nature of Germans' national guilt . . .To put it briefly, Anonymous writes a merciless account of what individuals can be faced with when all material and social props collapse."--"The ""B""oston"" Globe"

"Books can transform us. So very few do. "A Woman in ""B""erlin" is one that can."--"Dayton"" Daily News"
"A work of great power . . . The author is a keen observer of the ironies, even the absurdities, of a collapsing society. . . . A devastating and rare glimpse at ordinary people who struggle to survive."--"Booklist"
"With the passage of time, Anonymous's perspective--and the extraordinary way she kept her dignity and moral sense alive in an inferno--have made her diary a war classic."--"Maclean's "(Toronto)
"Marvelous . . . As it is a human instinct to survive, this book, which could have been horrifying, is instead exhilarating: a rare tribute to the human spirit."--"Daily Mail" (U.K.)

Reseña del editor:

A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice

For eight weeks in 1945, as Berlin fell to the Russian army, a young woman kept a daily record of life in her apartment building and among its residents. "With bald honesty and brutal lyricism" (Elle), the anonymous author depicts her fellow Berliners in all their humanity, as well as their cravenness, corrupted first by hunger and then by the Russians. "Spare and unpredictable, minutely observed and utterly free of self-pity" (The Plain Dealer, Cleveland), A Woman in Berlin tells of the complex relationship between civilians and an occupying army and the shameful indignities to which women in a conquered city are always subject--the mass rape suffered by all, regardless of age or infirmity.

A Woman in Berlin stands as "one of the essential books for understanding war and life" (A. S. Byatt, author of Possession).
