A firsthand account of the Weimar Republics final months and the early rise of Nazi power in Germany, Plotkins diary focuses on the German working class, the labor movement, and the plight of German Jews.

Plotkin investigated Berlins social conditions with the help of German Social-Democratic leaders whose analyses of the situation he records alongside his own.Most accounts of Hitlers rise to power emphasize political institutions by focusing on the Nazi partys clashes with other political forces.

In contrast, Plotkin is especially attentive to socioeconomic factors, providing an alternative view from the left that stems from his access to key German labor and socialist leaders. Chronologically, the diary reports on the moment when Hitlers seizure of power was not yet inevitable and when leaders on the left still believed in a different outcome of the crisis, but it also includes Plotkins account of the complete destruction of German labor in May 1933.
