Course Description

Hailed by the New Yorker magazine as one of the most compelling documents to come out of World War II, "From Day to Day" is a concentration camp diary written by a Norwegian named Odd Nansen. Nansen, the son of the famous polar explorer and humanitarian Fridtjof Nansen (1922 Nobel Peace Prize laureate), was arrested in 1942 and spent the remainder of the war in German captivity in Norway and Germany. Nansen's inspiring diary eloquently depicts one man's struggle not only to survive as a prisoner in Nazi camps but to preserve his humanity in the face of unrelenting terror. In the words of William L. Shirer, noted author of "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich," Nansen's diary "reminds us in never-to-be-forgotten pages how noble and generous the human spirit can be in the face of terrible adversity." Out of print for over sixty years, Timothy Boyce will tell how he rediscovered, edited, and republished the diary and why it is as relevant today as it was when it was first written. | Lecture (plus questions)
