“I left Berlin three days before the Hitler regime commenced (1933), and I was happy to leave, as my nerves were on edge with the tenseness of the political situation all around. I have seen too many starving people in Germany, and starving people are crazy people, willing to clutch at any straw, to follow any leader. Politics in Germany is a vital personal concern. People who have been bosom friends for years do not speak to one another because of differences.”    -Peter Lorre,
