Item Details

Originally published in 1938, Youth Without God explores the indoctrination of youth under a totalitarian regime. From the perspective of a disgruntled teacher, Horvath narrates a sinister tale of disillusionment, betrayal and dark despair. Set in a dystopian world of a pre-military camp for adolescents, names are replaced by letters; racial intolerance rages; freedom is denied; and everyone is a secret spy for the state. Without direct reference to the Third Reich, Horvath offers a stark and haunting portrait of paranoia in Nazi Germany.
