'Simple people writing notes'

Alone in Berlin by German author Hans Fallada is seen as one of the greatest tales of German resistance to the Nazis. Based on a true story it describes how a husband and wife distributed anti-Nazi messages around Berlin.

An English translation appeared was received with critical acclaim last year. Berlin correspondent Steve Rosenberg spoke to Hans Fallada's son, Ulrich Ditzen, about the remarkable events on which the book is based.
