Testimony of the Twentieth Century
provides a fascinating look at the major transformations that have shaped
Germany through the eyes of those who have experienced these firsthand.
With her text and photos, Marie Ueda has put forth a thoughtful analysis
of Germany; its people, its culture, and the decisions that have led
a nation through this tumultuous century.
- Martin Walker, Washington,
D.C., foreign correspondent for The Guardian, London.
Marie Ueda has produced a haunting
elegy of a dramatic era; an extraordinary compilation of image and
interview that is as informative as it is touching.
- Los Angeles Jewish Times
Carrying a journalist's badge of
objectivity, Marie Ueda just completed a seven-year mission to chronicle
the horrors of the Holocaust and World War II in Europe. Supported
by photographs, the text of these probing interviews documents a war
that, in the perspective of modern man and modern history, is not
over ... Testimony of the Twentieth Century was a sojourn for
Ueda, who tried to bridge the chasm of the war and extermination that
50 years ago threatened to shatter mankind.

Professor of History of the City University of New York
Marie Ueda, an investigative photojournalist,
toured the world in her work and demonstrated a rare capacity. In
her book, Testimony of the Twentieth Century, she reveals a
remarkable work dealing with such controversial subjects as Hitler,
the Third Reich, National Socialism and the Holocaust. She has an
extraordinary mind for understanding the similarities and differences
in the disciplines of history and journalism, and she knows how to
use it. Her work is well beyond the ordinary, and as a superb craftswoman
I believe that Ms. Ueda is a national asset.
