Description

This text tells the story of a committed young woman who overcame fierce resistance to discover and make public the suppressed deeds of her fellow citizens. First published as part of Germany's What I Think series, this memoir chronicles the intense backlash Rosmus faced in the form of censorship, lawsuits and death threats. Rosmus's story, which inspired the 1990 Academy Award-nominated film "The Nasty Girl", also follows her attempts to bring home Passau's expelled Jews and few Holocaust survivors, and to commemorate the forgotten Jews of Passau. Her story recounts her dedication to uncovering anti-Semitism and to fight neo-Nazis and Germany's extreme right.
