THE ASSOCIATION FOR MORMON LETTERS
Presents An Award in Biography for Best Biography 1992 to Rudi Wobbe and Jerry Borrowman for Three Against Hitler:
"As we approach the end of the 20th Century, it seems that much of Mormon history and biography is still caught up in the 19th Century. Something about the early days still attracts most of the attention, yet the Church has experienced its largest growth and faced some of its greatest challenges since 1900. Given this preoccupation it is refreshing to find an autobiography that directly addresses some of the dilemmas faced by the Mormon Church as it has become a world-wide church. Three Against Hitler tells the story of three German teenagers who took on the Nazi regime. While plays and articles have been written about Helmuth Huebener because he initiated writing anti-Nazi literature and was killed as a result, the story of Rudi Wobbe's involvement and imprisonment throughout the war is equally powerful. Wobbe and Borrowman use straightforward language to tell Wobbe's story. There is no attempt to overdramatize the events; simply "telling it as it was" adds to the book's strengths. And by so doing, it addresses the difficult questions of whether Mormons should be loyal to principles or to government. The Association for Mormon Letters applauds the authors and Covenant Communications for their publication of this autobiography." January 23, 1993
