Journal Entry 1 by spy-there from Zürich, Zürich Switzerland on Thursday, November 16, 2023
Irmina is not a German name of the 20th century. Irma would be one or Hermine; Irmina is just the medieval form which was not used anymore. So I thought the author must be some American illustrator who has no inkling of Germany - but no, she is a German. Strange.

Yelin shows, how the perfectly reasonable Irmina, who has her own will and strong opinions about discrimination (she is in love with a black student), turns into a Nazi woman, marries an SS officer and becomes blind for all the injustice and atrocities happening around her. How was it possible that the German people so obediently followed the Nazi rules? It's very banal, they just did, because everyone did. Irmina who started out so full of power, so determined for a better life, becomes a housewife and spends her life in mediocrity. Sad and disappointing.

The handwritten letters are alas nearly illegible (maybe with a strong magnifier), the editor should have altered the font.
