Download E-books Das Dritte Reich und die Deutschen in der Sowjetunion PDF

By Ingeborg Fleischhauer

Die deutsche Besatzungspolitik in der Sowjetunion wahrend des Zweiten Weltkrieges ist in zahlreichen Untersuchungen analysiert und ebenso die Rolle der verschiedenen sowjetischen Nationalitaten unter deutscher Besetzung aus unterschiedlichen Richtungen durchleuchtet worden. Allein das Schicksal der deutschen Minderheit der Sowjetunion in dieser Zeit wurde in der internationalen Literatur weithin ausgespart. Von vornherein der Kollaboration verdachtig, schien die deutsche Volksgruppe als privilegierteste der nationalen Minderheiten in der UdSSR unter deutscher Besetzung wenig Stoff zu einer breiteren Studie zu bieten. Gestutzt auf umfassende Quellen zeigt nun aber Ingeborg Fleischhauer, dass die Deutschen in der Sowjetunion nicht nur zu Opfern der Stalinistischen Deportationspolitik, sondern auch zu Objekten der Himmlerschen Germanisierungsmanie wurden. Die Autorin fuhrt den Beweis, dass sich die Mittaterschaft und der Kollaborationseifer der deutschen Minderheit in Grenzen hielt, und schildert, wie sie dennoch, in langerfristiger historischer Perspektive betrachtet, fur den Expansionismus des NS-Staates mit dem permanenten Verlust ihrer historischen Heimat bussen musste."

Download E-books Lisboa. Un melodrama PDF

By Leopoldo Brizuela

Lisboa, noviembre de 1942. Portugal recibe un ultimátum para entrar en l. a. guerra. El terror a l. a. ocupación nazi o al bombardeo aliado se adueña de Lisboa. En ese contexto, el cónsul de otro país impartial, los angeles Argentina, atrae l. a. atención al anunciar sorpresivamente los angeles donación de un cargamento de cereales, cuyo destinatario concreto no revelará hasta que el gobierno, cada vez más receloso, autorice el desembarco de los angeles carga.

En una sola y larguísima noche, mientras miles de refugiados de toda Europa esperan l. a. partida del barco Boa Esperança para ponerse a salvo de los nazis, l. a. gesta del cónsul argentino es el cedazo en que se entrecruzan, como en un folletín, las "historias más secretas" de un período único en l. a. historia. El propio cónsul, los angeles mítica pareja de Tania y Armando Discépolo, los angeles cantante de fados Amália, y el misterioso Ricardo De Sanctis, que asegura ser banquero y "refugiado personal" del Cardenal de Lisboa.

Erizada de sentimientos, emociones y pasiones, excesiva como todo melodrama, prodigiosa en los angeles creación de climas e intensamente atractiva en las confesiones que los personajes intercambian, Lisboa tiene l. a. precisión arquitectónica de una ambiciosa pieza teatral y musical, en los angeles que del coro multitudinario emergen los solistas para hacer oír sus deseos y padecimientos.

La crítica ha dicho...

«Me parece que Lisboa. Un melodrama, además también de una investigación amorosa, es el tipo de novela que se está obligado a escribir si se quiere ser un novelista de verdad.»
J. Ernesto Ayala-Dip, El País

«Como una suerte de Pirandello contemporáneo de los angeles narrativa argentina, en el teatro que monta Brizuela los seres están desnudos. Algunos actores engañosamente secundarios tienen sus momentos de gloria, como el secretario del consulado y su patética mujercita (Ordónez y Sofía), el maestro de canto de Carlos Gardel, Eugénio de Oliveira, y un joven, Ricardo de Sanctis, que asegura ser "refugiado" own del cardenal de Lisboa, entre tantos otros dentro un elenco inusual para las novelas de estos tiempos.»
