Yes, it's the 1952 edition. It's damn good, well told yet shattering. To think that the Brits deliberately destroyed the maternity hospital in the belief that Liebel [Oberbürgermeister] was there beggars belief.
Raises a lot of questions in my mind which I should have asked when my mother & stepfather [Polish] were alive as well as the relatives in Germany. Guess it was not important to me at the time. Yet it also answers a lot of questions re the attitude and behaviour of my family and other Nürnbergers which I sometimes could not understand, particularly my 7 year older sister who was smack bang in the middle of this "Saustall" and was looking after me on 2.1.1945 as our home was destroyed [yet again], whilst our mother was at work as a Red Cross nurse. As I was only 1 at the time, I have no personal recollections and that must surely be a good thing.
Thanks for the references.
