    1. How do you describe horror and still get your reader to laugh hysterically I Sleep in Hitler s Room by Tuvia Tenenbom achieves it on almost every page Tenenbom describes a nation soaking in hate, yet he manages to not make you hate that nation in return His criticism of Germany, which he finds to be affluent of anti Semitic emotions and thoughts, is directed at the thought and the hate rather than at the people In between, as you read this fantastic book, you can t stop laughing.Note You are to [...]


    2. Author s reflections on travels and encounters with Germany and Germans Quirky, opinionated, confrontational, smart, often funny.


    3. Tenenbom s portrait of contemporary Germans is replete with both dark humor and sadness Thanks to interviews with Germany s rich and famous, as well as the marginal and unknown, the writer paints a picture of a nation that is obsessed with Jews, whether during the Holocaust or today, especially vis a vis Israel Tenenbom, an Israeli born American, asks questions which others have avoided, and the answers are revelatory Not only do they uncover a palpable sense of anti Semitism, but they showcase [...]


    4. This is a humorous look at a Jewish man from the USA who visits Germany.He reports that antisemitism is still rampart there He travels from city to city, interviews people from all walks of life.He laments that everywhere he goes people are still hung up on the Jews All they want to talk about is the Israeli Palestine situation He acts as though he s sick of the subject, yet if the next person he interviews doesn t bring it up, he prods them by asking what their opinion is I found this to be mos [...]


    5. Tuvia Tenenbom pflegt einen etwas grobschl chtigen Schreibstil, der mir das Lesen zumindest im englischen Original teilweise etwas schwer gemacht hat Da das ganze aber als Reisetagebuch auf der Suche nach dem Wesen des Deutschen sowieso sehr kurzweilig gestaltet ist, f llt das nicht so sehr ins Gewicht Viel st rker im Vordergrund stehen die zahlreichen skurrilen Begegnungen und Interviews des Journalisten mit bekannten Personen aus Medien, Kultur und Politik sowie ganz normalen B rgern Deutschla [...]


    6. Somehow aggressive and ironic, interesting in a sense to read the view of someone visiting GER and writing about his ecclectic but valuable impressions In this sense a colourful opening of the mind, but saying that living in GER, this book gives only a very narrow view.



    7. Great readIf you are interested in attempting to understand Germany, this is a worthwhile read Tenenbom uses his interview method to dig out insights about the German psyche.



    8. Tell me about your vacation, where you went ,who you spoke to and maybe even what they said but never ever tell me about what you ate for lunch it s boring I like the author he smokes That practically makes him a freethinker these days and seems to be a classical liberal as opposed to the new age verity I am still not sure what makes a German tick but the problem of the German is the problem of the West From the authors description the German churches are in a worse state of decay than in the We [...]


    9. Was interesting to read this alongside reading a recent news article about French German Arte WDR deciding not to run a documentary they commissioned about antisemitism, Chosen and Excluded Jew Hatred in Europe because content was too honest.




    10. This book was recommended by a speaker at a Holocaust Memorial Ceremony where I work I found this book sad, humorous and informative, depending on the interviewee


    11. I admire this man s bravery and wit He presents a most serious topic with candor and objectivity So many people have no understanding of what is happening in the EU and the effect of Palestinian propaganda , well funded and well disseminated, throughout the EU If you have any wish to get the skinny and why otherwise intelligent people are duped into believing the Palestinian Cause is simply anti Zionist, you must read Tenenbom The Cause is a mask for virulent antisemitism spreading through out E [...]


    12. Lo stile di Tenenbom vivacissimo e impertinente, con un sostrato d ironia e sarcasmo che va a sostenere una certosina cura per i dettagli Da alcuni stato accostato a Woody Allen, a me ha ricordato il Gianni Celati di Avventure in Africa con quel costante senso di spaesamento e sorpresa capace di far vedere la realt sotto luci inimmaginate ed inimmaginabili.Continua a leggere su leggereacolori letti e


    13. A little bit biased, his viewpoint is strongly pro Isreal expansions politics, he does not understand the plight of people living in Gaza Here, his views are blinkered Otherwise an entertaining read re German life and culture, though not comprehensive, but then I think he didn t set out to do that.


    14. A great book I really had to laugh a lot And he s right Most Germans are like he describes them racist, stubborn, anti Semites and yes they love Vereine I recommend this book to all who want to know how most Germans are.


    15. A deceptively simple book tackling a complex issue which, in light of recent events, is exceptionally relevant Worst of all for the first time in my life I feel like a Jew and it s a horrible feeling Don t cry, my dear This too shall pass.
