JEAN AMERY was born in Vienna in 1911 as Hanns Mayer. As a young man, he studied philosophy and wanted to be a novelist. When the Nazis came to power in Austria in 1938, he fled to Belgium and joined the resistance there. He was caught distributing leaflets, tortured, and sent to Auschwitz. He survived Auschwitz and after the war made his home in Brussels, changing his name to Jean Amery. In 1966, he published Jenseits von Schuld und Suhne (At the Mind's Limits), a series of essays about his experiences in Auschwitz, which made him famous. JOHN D. BARLOW is Dean of the School of Liberal Arts at Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis. He is a professor of English and German and author German Expressionist Film.
