Deutschland. Heute. Der Gymnasiallehrer Rainer Wenger startet während einer Projektwoche zum Thema "Staatsformen" einen Versuch, um den Schülern die Entstehung einer Diktatur begreifbar zu machen. Was zunächst harmlos mit Begriffen wie Disziplin und Gemeinschaft beginnt, entwickelt sich binnen weniger Tage zu einer richtigen Bewegung. Der Name: DIE WELLE. Bereits am dritten Tag beginnen Schüler, Andersdenkende auszuschließen und zu drangsalieren. Als die Situation schließlich eskaliert, beschließt der Lehrer, das Experiment abzubrechen. Doch es ist zu spät. DIE WELLE ist außer Kontrolle geraten ... (www.fantasyguide.de, 5.8.2008)
L'onda( Visual )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in Italian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Una generica città della Germania. Rainer Wenger, giovane e anticonformista insegnante in un liceo, il Marie Curie Gymnasium, dopo aver tentato di tenere un seminario di una settimana sull’anarchia, si ritrova a gestirne uno sull’autocrazia. Cercando di catturare l’attenzione dei suoi allievi, Wenger deicide di sottoporli a un esperimento partendo dalla domanda se sia possibile al giorno d’oggi l’instaurazione di un regime dittatoriale. Si pone a capo di un ipotetico movimento, ricreando all’interno dell’aula i meccanismi di una società perfettamente coesa, unita attraverso una forte identità comune, stretta intorno ad alcuni ideali di mutua solidarietà e pronta a chiudersi verso coloro che non sono ammessi a farne parte. Il gruppo di allievi si dà il nome di “Onda”, inventa un saluto con il quale identificarsi e decide di distinguersi dagli altri allievi della scuola per mezzo di una camicia bianca che funge da divisa. Ben presto, Wenger si accorge che l’esperimento è sfuggito al suo controllo: “L’onda” comincia a far parlare di sé per la gratuita ed esaltata violenza dei suoi atti, approdati in una realtà parallela nella quale si è perso completamente il senso didattico originario. Wenger decide di mettere fine all’esperimento, radunando tutti i numerosi allievi in una grande aula: la notizia è accolta con sconforto dai ragazzi, al punto che uno di essi, Tim Stoltefuss, sentendosi smarrito e privo dei principi in cui aveva fermamente creduto, decide di togliersi la vita sparandosi con una pistola

1 edition published in 2008 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on a real-life experiment that took place in a Californian high school, The Wave tells the story of a high school teacher's unusual class experiment. In an attempt to demonstrate what life is like under a dictatorship, the teacher comes up with an experiment to explain to his students how totalitarian governments work. A role-playing game with tragic results. Within a few days, what began with harmless notions like discipline and community builds into a real movement: The Wave. As the students boundaries are pushed, things begin to spiral out of control and this newly found cult starts to take on a life of its own."--Container
