Download Ein Bild von Eintracht und Verlorenheit (German Edition) by Max von der Grün PDF

By Max von der Grün

Das Besondere an Max von der Grün ist, dass seine literarischen Texe Zeitdokumente und dennoch zeitlos sind. Seine pointierten Beschreibungen der Arbeitswelt und ihrer Unzulänglichkeiten haben ihn bekannt gemacht. Doch Max von der Grün hat zu einer Vielzahl anderer Themen gearbeitet. So erzählt er in diesem Band vom Krieg und von der Zeit danach. Von Mühsal, Elend und dem schwierigen Umgang mit den diktatorischen Machthabern. Er urteilt nicht, bezieht aber unmissverständlich Stellung. Er berichtet von seiner Fahrt zu einer KZ Gedenkstätte. Beschreibt Gedanken und Gefühle, bietet Identifikationsflächen. Seine lebendigenReisereportagen zeugen zudem von einem weitsichtigen Blick über den Tellerrand. Sie sind unterhaltsam und spannend zugleich.
