ABOUT THE DEVIL IN FRANCE
The USC Libraries are home to the papers and library of historical novelist Lion Feuchtwanger, who escaped his native Germany after Adolf Hitler rose to power in 1933.
An outspoken critic of the Nazi Party, his books were burned and propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels declared him "Enemy Number One of the German people."
The libraries recently published a new edition of THE DEVIL IN FRANCE, a memoir of Feuchtwanger's internment and escape from Vichy France in 1940. His story reveals the struggles faced by artists who speak truth to power and endure exile from their native countries.
In conjunction with the publication, Vision and Voices presents the events series ENEMY NUMBER ONE.
