A Bulgarian in Hitler’s Berlin traces the movement of a sixteen- year old Bulgarian who accepts a scholarship to the Berlin Technical University, the best science and engineering university in the world. Beginning in 1939 during his progress toward a degree, young Ivanian encounters a series of roadblocks ending with the destruction of the University’s Tower of Learning in November 1943. He’s shamed into agreeing to join the German army, but first he must discuss the decision with his parents. On the train home, he rethinks his decision.
