Tidings by Ernst Emil Wiechert( Book )

152 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,068 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Germany's literary giants, Ernst Emil Wiechert (1887-1950) was thrown into Buchenwald concentration camp for publicly backing anti-Nazi pastor Martin Nieml̲ler. His final novel, published posthumously, deals with the aftermath of the Holocaust - how the survivors, both victims and perpetrators, seek healing and redemption as they pick up the shattered pieces of their world. Evoking comparisons to the Russian greats Dostoyevsky and Tolstoy, Wiechert displays an uncommon depth of insight into the human condition at its most degenerate and it ennobling best - an understanding born of his own suffering and quest for rebirth. His novel is peopled with rich and complex characters and charged with both violent feelings and spiritual hunger. First published in 1950 as Missa Sine Nomine (Mass Without a Name), Tidings deserves its place among the masterpieces of European literature

This anti-Nazi parable is set in an antique Indian village that is overrun by Aryan militants. The young man Vasudeva becomes a sort of guerrilla dissident and tries to kill one of the invaders, but his mother returns him to a life of peace and prayer. When the warriors kill a poor farmer's buffalo, Vasudeva and his mother travel to demand justice from King Murduk. They refuse to worship an idolatrous statue of the ruler and are cast into jail. However, in discourses with the king on the subjects of justice, law and violence, Vasudeva enlightens him on the necessary limitations of power. Vasudeva and his mother are martyred, burned at the stake; but Murduk is converted and sends one hundred white buffaloes to the farmer. Wiechert wrote the story in 1937 but could not publish it until 1946
