Rekindling the Intellectual, Spiritual, Creative legacy of Christians in Culture

Not I - Joachim Fest Starting the fall 2014 season, Rev. Earl Palmer discusses, Not:I Memoirs of a German Childhood by Joachim C. Fest – an intimate account of life under the Third Reich through a child's eyes. Fest's father is a "conservative Catholic teacher, opposes the Nazi regime and as a result loses his job and status. Fest is forced to move to a boarding school in the countryside that he despises, and in his effort to come to terms with his father’s strong political convictions, he embarks on a tireless quest for knowledge and moral integrity that will shape the rest of his life and writing career."
