Blood BrothersBook - 2015
Originally published in 1932 and banned by the Nazis one year later, Blood Brothers follows a gang of young boys bound together by unwritten rules and mutual loyalty. This is the only known novel by German social worker and journalist Ernst Haffner, of whom nearly all traces were lost during WWII. Told in stark, unsparing detail, Haffner's story delves into the illicit underworld of Berlin on the eve of Hitler's rise to power, describing how these blood brothers move from one petty crime to the next, spending their nights in underground bars and hotels.
