Like many progressive artists of his time, Hans Uhlmann suffered under the reign of the national socialists. He was arrested because of his political stance in 1933 and spent almost two years in prison. In this period, Uhlmann filled multiple diaries, published for the first time in this volume. They offer insights into his thoughts on politics, society, literature and into the grueling daily routine behind the bars of a Nazi prison. Articles by Carmela Thiele, Dorothea Schöne, Annelie Lütgens and Michael Glasmeier accompany and supplement the original text.

This E-Book contains no images. The sketchbooks from Uhlmanns time in prison are reproduced in the print version.
