Best known as the translator of Winnie the Pooh into Latin, Alexander Lenard was born in 1910 in Budapest. He studied medicine in Vienna, but after the Anschluss, he left for Rome, hoping from there to sail for some quiet corner of the world far from the madness that he_unlike many others_could see coming and wished to avoid. However, he ended up staying in Rome throughout the war, and only left for Brazil in 1952, where he became the doctor and pharmacist in the tiny village of Dona Emma. He wrote a charming memoir of his time there under the English title of The Valley of the Latin Bear. Lenard died in 1972. The following excerpt is from his memoirs of the years 1938-46 in Mussolini's Rome, the dying days of Italian fascism in a city rich with the overlaid traditions of three thousand years. It is a record of everyday life under fascism without the judgment of propaganda, recalling to the modern reader that even the toughest times have their routine, that one can get accustomed to everything, and that at the end of the day a man's inner world may sometimes triumph over the brutality of the external world.
