Levins Mühle : 34 Sätze über meinen Grossvater; Roman by Johannes Bobrowski( Book )

160 editions published between 1963 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Es ist vielleicht falsch, wenn ich jetzt erzähle, wie mein Großvater die Mühle weggeschwemmt hat, aber vielleicht ist es auch nicht falsch. Auch wenn es auf die Familie zurückfällt." - so beginnt Johannes Bobrowski seinen Roman über die Wassermüller. Bobrowski verpackt das schwierige Thema in eine leichtgängige, anschauliche Parabel - die weit weg im malerischen Culmerland und in einer lange vergangenen Zeit spielt. Da die Zeiten schlecht sind, wenden sich die Bauern im westpreußischen Dorf Neumühl immer öfter an die Verkaufsmühle anstatt an die Lohnmühle im Ort, um schneller Geld für ihr Getreide zu bekommen. Dem Lohnmüller Johann - einem national gesinnten Preußen - wird es zu bunt: Kurzerhand zerstört er in der Nacht die Verkaufsmühle seines Konkurrenten, des polnisch-jüdischen Leo Levin, und nutzt die bestehenden Machtverhältnisse zu seinen Gunsten. Leo Levin versucht daraufhin per Gericht Gerechtigkeit zu erlangen - kein einfaches Unterfangen im preußischen Deutschland des ausgehenden 19. Jahrhunderts. Bobrowskis anschauliche und nur auf der Oberfläche leichte Erzählung traf bei ihrer Veröffentlichung im Jahr 1964 den Nerv der Zeit. Die Defa-Verfilmung "Levins Mühle" (1980) von Horst Seemann erhielt nationale sowie internationale Aufmerksamkeit. Die MDR-Produktion mit Bühnenstar Traugott Buhre bringt Bobrowskis Brückenschlag zwischen eingängiger Sprache und heiklem Thema auf den Punkt
