Book description

"Sunday, February 20, 1938
At one o'clock today, Radio Vienna broadcast Hitler's speech from Berlin. It was the first time they've ever broadcast one of his speeches. He has an Austrian accent, which shouldn't surprise me since he was born here. There must have been a lot of people because you could hear them all shouting SIEG HEIL, SIEG HEIL, when he arrived.... Although he sounded crude, there is something about the way he speaks that makes you listen. It was like when I'm on the Ferris wheel at the Prater and I look down even though I know I shouldn't because I'll be scared.
