"Zweig volunteered for the German army in World War I and saw action as a private in France, Hungary and Serbia. He was stationed in the Western Front at the time when Judenzählung was administered in the German army. Shaken by the experience, he wrote: "The Judenzählung was a reflection of unheard sadness for Germany's sin and our agony. If there was no antisemitism in the army, the unbearable call to duty would be almost easy." He began to revise his views on the war and to realize that it pitted Jews against Jews. Later he described his experiences in the short story Judenzählung vor Verdun. The war changed Zweig from a Prussian patriot to an eager pacifist." (Wiki). Bookseller Inventory # 153LR
