Joseph Roth

Joseph Roth.Shortly after Hitler’s rise to power, in February 1933, Roth wrote in a prophetic letter to his friend, the Austrian writer Stefan Zweig:

You will have realized by now that we are drifting towards great catastrophes.   Apart from the private — our literary and financial existence is destroyed — it all leads to a new war.   I won’t bet a penny on our lives.   They have succeeded in establishing a reign of barbarity.   Do not fool yourself.   Hell reigns.
