A novel dealing with anti-semitism in the Third Reich. As war mounts, in a small town in Bavaria the day-to-day existence of ordinary people remains as tedious, inane and sporadically tragic as ever, while Jewish persecution - at first subtle and then overt - becomes just another fact of life.

From HarperCollins: "Marcie Hershman's haunting TALES OF THE MASTER RACE circles the streets of Kreiswald, an imaginary town in Germany, during the crucial years of the Third Reich. It takes us inside th lives of "ordinary" German citizens--Aryan men and women--marking the subtle and more overt alterations brought about by the Nazi regime. In a series of interlinked stories with overlapping characters, a devastating portrait emerges of the chance effects on everyday existence of prejudice, mass deportation, murder, and war.
Now in its 5th printing; taught at universities and public schools across the U.S.
