Life became less oppressive for Remarque in his last two decades. In 1954, he  published  A Time to Love   and   a Time to Die , dedicated to his close friend, and later his  wife, Paulette Goddard Remarque. This novel achieved popular success as a Book-of- the-Month Club selection. Its focus, the effect of Gestapo tactics on civilians, bares the  scars inflicted by Germans who chose complicity with the Nazis as a means of coping.  The abridged German version of this novel incurred controversy because the editors  excised the full horrors of Remarque's incisive view of the Nazi perversion of the  national soul. In 1955, Remarque scripted Michael Musmanno's  Ten Days to Die  under  the title  The Last Act , which was filmed by an Austrian company to depict Hitler's final  days. An effective vehicle, it starred Oskar Werner and earned appreciative comment at  the Edinburgh Film Festival. A second Remarque book-to-film,

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
