"A Question of Belonging" is Ernst Beier's modern odyssey of loss and survival in the maelstrom of World War Two. Beier was from an affluent German Jewish family; he escaped to America just before Hitler's Nazi juggernaut closed the borders and he lost contact with the first great love of his life. Beier earned a college degree ina year and one-half and joined the U.S. Army. He fought his way back across Europe, eventually becoming an interpreter for the U.S. Army. All the while Beier used Goethe's "Faust, " (which he had virtually memorized) as a talisman and a guide. After the war, Beier returned to the United States and earned a doctorate in psychology. He went on to a distinguished academic career, first at Syracuse University and then at the University of Utah. Ernst Beier's memoir is an epic search for place in a shattered world and a stunning testament to the human spirit. Category: World War/ Two/ Holocaust/ memoirs
