Ensam i Berlin by Hans Fallada

By Hans Fallada

Året är 1940 och i huset på Jablonskistrasse fifty five i Berlin bor en samling småskurkar, råbarkade SS-män, horor, en pensionerad domare och romanens två huvudpersoner: verkmästarparet Otto och Anna Quangel. Här bor också en gammal ensam judisk dam, vars liv får ett fasansfullt slut.

Otto och Anna är skötsamma och tystlåtna - ett strävsamt arbetarklasspar. males när de nås av beskedet att deras son stupat i kriget ter sig livet plötsligt meningslöst. Så småningom inleder de en modig, om än patetisk, kamp mot nazismen som ger deras tillvaro ett nytt innehåll. På olika platser runtom i Berlin lägger de ut hundratals handtextade kort som manar until eventually motstånd, kort som kan plockas upp av vem som helst.

Den karriärhungrige kommissarie Escherich skyr inga ansträngningar för att hitta de skyldiga bakom de handskrivna lapparna och kommer paret allt närmare. Jakten utvecklas until en katt-och-råtta-lek som pågår lower than mer än två års tid med både komiska och skräckfyllda scener.

Över alltsammans hänger en stämning av brutalt förtryck som genomsyrar vardagen för människorna i Berlin - varje möte, ord och dealing with måste vägas mot en paranoid nazistisk maktapparat. males trots regimens brutala skräckvälde överlever ändå medmänsklighet och kärlek.

Ensam i Berlin är en lektion i historia, i förtryckets anatomi och samtidigt en nervpirrande bladvändare - en moralisk mystery, lika gripande och spännande som en spionroman av le Carré. Författaren och Auschwitzöverlevaren Primo Levi kallade boken för "det bästa som någonsin skrivits om det tyska motståndet".

Berättelsen är baserad på Falladas egna erfarenheter below nazismen och skrevs på några få veckor hösten 1946. Boken har tidigare filmatiserats för både television och bio och det finns nu planer för en nyinspelning.

Ensam i Berlin (Jeder stirbt für sich allein) gavs första gången ut i Sverige 1948 med titeln En mot alla - då med flera centrala avsnitt strukna. Lind & Co är stolta över att här kunna presentera den första kompletta svenska utgåvan.

Hans Fallada- eller Rudolf Ditzen som var hans riktiga namn - föddes 1893. Hans liv kom att bli mycket dramatiskt med inslag som dråp, förskingring, självmordsförsök, mentalsjukdom, alkohol- och narkotikamissbruk. Trots censur och politisk förföljelse valde Fallada att stanna i Tyskland less than kriget och räknas numera som en av landets verkligt betydelsefulla 1900-talsförfattare. Han puppy 1947, några månader innan Ensam i Berlin publicerades.
