Kein anderes Land begeisterte den Kosmopoliten Stefan Zweig mehr als Brasilien. Mitten im Zweiten Weltkrieg, auf dem Höhepunkt der Selbstzerstörung Europas, bereiste er den fünftgrößten Staat der Erde, und war fasziniert von dessen natürlicher Schönheit und der friedlichen Lebensweise, Toleranz und Offenheit seiner Menschen. Mit großer Weitsicht sieht Zweig die heutige Lage Brasiliens voraus, indem er aus Fakten der Geschichte Prognosen für die Zukunft herleitet, die gegenwärtig teilweise nicht nur erfüllt, sondern übererfüllt scheinen

For eight weeks in 1945, as Berlin fell to the Russian army, a young woman, alone in the city, kept a daily record of her and her neighbours' experiences, determined to describe the common lot of millions. Purged of all self-pity but with laser-sharp observation and bracing humour, the anonymous author conjures up a ravaged apartment building and its little group of residents stuggling to get by in the rubble without food, heat or water. She depicts her fellow Berliners in all their humanity as well as their craveness, corrupted first by hunger and then by the Russians

Letters to Milena by Franz Kafka( Book )

11 editions published between 1953 and 1999 in English and German and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In no other work does Franz Kafka reeal himself as in Letters to Milena, which begins as a business correspondence but soon develops into a passionate but doomed epistolary love affair. Kafka's Czech translator, Milena Jesenska was a gifted and charismatic twenty-three-year-old who was uniquely able to recognize Kafka's complex genius and his even more complex character. For the thrity-six-year-old Kafka, she was "a living fire, such as I have never seen." It was to Milena that he revealed his most intimate self and, eventually, entrusted his diaries for safekeeping. "The voice of Kafka in Letters to Milena is more personal, more pure, and more painful than in his fiction: a testimony to human existence and to our eternal wait for the impossible. A marvelous new edition of a classic text." 'Jan Kott
