Would Otto walk the mutinous path had his son arrived safely home?Hans Fallada who suffered through his own personal war as Rudolf Ditzen brings the laudable efforts of Elise and Otto Hampel 1931 a real life couple who wrote anonymous postcards and leaflets to educate people about the ongoing atrocities informing to not buying Nazi papers and resist from participating in the war The writing is trouble free and the plot predictable; nevertheless throughout the fictional portrayals of the uangels Fallada beautifully enlightens the misery of ordinary Germans who struggled from their own moral battles Like Eva Kungel who curses the fact of her birthing children who would eventually end up becoming monsters The investigation of the Hobgoblin case and the defenselessness of Inspector Escherich expose the disintegration of humanness in a society where the nobleness of a feeble endeavor to capture terror was misplacedOtto uangel was the burning conscience of a guilt –ridden nation He and Anna were among the few whom were “good corns” sown in the fields of weeds Fallada signs off the book saying “But we don’t want to end this book with death; dedicated as it is to life life always triumphs over humiliation and tears over misery and death” Otto and Anna’s death was inevitable and their efforts although ineffectual were not insignificant The uangels did the unattainable and unfortunately their voices were lost among timid tones and pigheaded establishment contrasting Wael Ghonim the cyber hero whose efforts instigated a revolution finally overthrowing Hosni Mubarak from supremacy

TEXT ´ Jeder stirbt für sich allein Ö Hans Fallada

Inspired by a true story Hans Fallada's Alone in Berlin is the gripping tale of an ordinary man's determination to defy the tyranny of Nazi rule This Penguin Classics edition contains an afterword by Geoff Wilkes as well as facsimiles of the original Gestapo file which inspired the novel Berlin 1940 and the city is filled with fear At the house on 55 Jablonski Strasse its various occupants try to live under Nazi rule in their different ways the bullying Hitler loyalists the Persickes the retired judge Fromm and the unass Loved thisBut first some contextHans Fallada is the pen name of Rudolf Ditzen At the age of 18 Ditzen and a friend went out in the countryside and in the manner of duellists fired guns at each other over some adolescent sexual rutting The friend missed but Ditzen's aim was true Taking his friend's gun Ditzen shot himself in the chest but survived For the first of many times Ditzen was committed to a sanatorium for the mentally ill Released Ditzen turned to alcohol and narcotics This didn't stop him from becoming a successful novelist Perhaps it helped? His 1932 novel Little Man What Now was a popular success and Hollywood turned it into a film Hitler spurned him though because of the Jewish producers of the film His drinking and drug use increased he became unstable and was committed to a Nazi insane asylum There he wrote the novel The Drinker not published until 1950 and now on my Mount TBR The war ended; Ditzen was released from the asylum but he was now a dying man A friend gave him the file of a middle aged couple who began leaving handwritten anti Nazi notes after the wife's brother died in combat IN 24 DAYS Ditzen wrote Every Man Dies Alone based on their story 24 DAYSHe died before it was published a morphine overdose It was not translated and published here until 2009You may turn your head thinking this is just Holocaust literature But turn back because this is special Otto and Anna uangel are special The basis of the story is admittedly small because the crime is small writing anti Nazi postcards and dropping them in random stairwells Anna asks Isn't this thing that you're wanting to do isn't is a bit small Otto? Otto tells her Whether it's big or small Anna if they get wind of it it'll cost us our livesAnd so we are soldAnna and Otto are surrounded by many characters though And that is the brilliance of the novel Each character however small becomes important definitional Let me share just one the doctor who is really a symphony conductor He shares a cell with Otto He is not exactly Otto's kind of guy But the doctor grows on him The doctor is forbidden to sing So he hums Outside during their morning walk uangel got used to listening to this humming Whatever his poor opinion of music he did notice its effect on him Sometimes it made him feel strong and brave enough to endure any fate and then Reichhardt would say Beethoven Sometimes it made him bafflingly lighthearted and cheerful which he had never been in his life and then Reichhardt would say Mozart and uangel would forget all about his worries And sometimes the sounds emanating from the doctor were dark and heavy and uangel would feel a pain in his chest and it would be as though he was a little boy again sitting in church with his mother with something grand the whole of life ahead of him and then Reichhardt would say Johann Sebastien BachWhat amazed me and why I led off with the author's life story is that this is not simply a genre of a book; it's not just a book about WWII or Nazis or an anti Nazi movement This is superb craftsmanship Written in 1947 there is nothing dated about it Perhaps that's the wonderful translation Although there are numerous ghastly typos which I do not count against the author or translator It feels timely immediateBy way of post script here are just two things I learned from this book First a proverb He who has butter on his head should not go out in the sun True thatAnd second under the Racial Purity Laws all Jewish women in Nazi Germany had to change their first names to Sara and all Jewish men had to change their names to IsraelBut this is a book about simple people like Philip Roth's Al Gionfriddo A little man Doctor who once did a very great thing
