A Courageous Statement, A Disappointing Read 28 mars 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book contains a collection of short reflections on the various sufferings of German citizens at the end of World War II (they originally appeared as newspaper articles in the author's native Sweden). Dagerman's basic argument throughout this collection is that German citizens who survived the war should not be treated as "tokens of national guilt" but rather as suffering, fallible human beings who are starving and dying under the Allied occupation. While traveling through the devastated landscape of early post-war Germany, Dagerman discovered that (at least in 1946-7) the Allies had done little to alleviate the tremendous suffering of the German survivors. He felt that punishing the vanquished at that point served no purpose and that doing so only risked pushing the survivors to acts of degradation and criminality. This in turn would do nothing to foster democracy. While I agree with Dagerman's assessment of the situation (in what is sure to be an unpopular opinion for many even today), his collection of short articles whether describing a family living in a flooded basement, train passengers being deported from one part of Germany to another, or an old woman foraging to feed her family, remain oddly unengaging and hollow. Perhaps this is because, as Dagerman himself admitted, he was a journalist who could leave this ruined landscape any time he wished. This is the sort of thing that Heinrich Boll is able to describe much more pungently and in greater depth throughout his writings, but Dagerman's attempt to describe the moral ambiguity of the situation is nonetheless appreciated.
W.G. Sebald mentions this book once or twice in his _On the Natural History of Destruction_. Though I'm not sure he had the opportunity to ***, it is still very edifying and strangely enough seems to complement _German Autumn_ rather nicely.

Good Commentary on German suffering 16 mars 2012
Par S.J.Tagliareni - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Always hard in light of the bestial treatment by the Germans of millions to realize that ordinary citizens paid a heavy price for the Nazi dream.The stories contained here bring out individual suffering of those that survived.

I heard about this book through a friend and ordered it from Amazon. It arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Now I am reading about my home country and am enjoying it immensely.
