Hans Fallada's Jeder stirbt für sich allein: Roman (German Edition) PDF

By Hans Fallada

Ein einzigartiges landscape des Berliner Lebens in der Nazizeit: Hans Falladas eindrückliche und berührende Darstellung des Widerstands der kleinen Leute avanciert rund sechzig Jahre nach der Entstehung zum internationalen Publikumserfolg. Erst jetzt erscheint erstmals die ungekürzte Fassung nach dem bislang unveröffentlichten Originalmanuskript.

Ein Berliner Ehepaar wagte einen aussichtslosen Widerstand gegen die Nazis und wurde 1943 hingerichtet. Von ihrem Schicksal erfuhr Hans Fallada aus einer Gestapo-Akte, die ihm durch den Dichter und späteren Kulturminister Johannes R. Becher in die Hände kam. Fieberhaft schrieb Fallada daraufhin im Herbst 1946 in weniger als vier Wochen seinen letzten Roman nieder und schuf ein landscape des Lebens der „normalen“ Leute im Berlin der Nazizeit: Nachdem ihr Sohn in Hitlers Krieg gefallen ist, wollen Anna und Otto Quangel Zeichen des Widerstands setzen. Sie schreiben Botschaften auf Karten und verteilen sie in der Stadt. Die stillen, nüchternen Eheleute träumen von einem weitreichenden Erfolg und ahnen nicht, dass Kommissar Escherich ihnen längst auf der Spur ist.

Diese Neuausgabe präsentiert Falladas letzten Roman erstmals in der ungekürzten Originalfassung und zeigt ihn rauer, intensiver, authentischer. Ergänzt wird der textual content durch ein Nachwort, Glossar und Dokumente zum zeithistorischen Kontext.
