The journey : a novel by H. G Adler( Book )

34 editions published between 1962 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A novel of the Holocaust based on the author's own experiences chronicles the ordeal of one family, forced from their home and struggling to cope with the destruction, deprivation, and death around them, from the perspective of a single survivor. The tragic tale of the Lustig family doctor Leopold; his wife, Caroline; their children, Zerlina and Paul; and Caroline's sister, Ida who are sent to the walled city of Ruhenthal after authorities label them forbidden. Taking place during an unspecified period of war and genocide, the story is based on Adler's experiences at Theresienstadt, a labor camp where he was imprisoned for two and a half years during WWII
The wall : a novel by H. G Adler( Book )

23 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Random House published the first English translation of H.G. Adler's The Journey in 2008, literary critics and historians alike came to recognize Adler as a neglected modern master, comparing him to Joyce, Woolf, Kafka, and Gertrude Stein. Told in a powerful stream-of-consciousness style reminiscent of our finest modernist writers, The Wall is the story of Arthur Landau, a Holocaust survivor struggling to leave behind the horrors of the past and find a foothold in the present. After the war, Arthur returns to Prague in the hope of finding his parents, works in a museum that collects Jewish artifacts, and eventually crosses the border, leaving his homeland and friends for good. Despite the loss of his first wife to the camps, the love of his second wife, Johanna, and their two children anchors him amid the chaotic and competitive world of postwar exiles living in London. Though Adler recreates time and place with stunning descriptive detail, the themes are universal and timeless. The "wall" in front of Arthur will not let him entirely remember the past and thus free himself from nightmares, nor entirely let him forget the past and move on. Though he sees himself as akin to "that first Adam", expelled forever from Paradise, Arthur gradually learns to affirm his life once again through his family and work, a testimony to the human spirit that continues to persevere within him"--

H.G. Adler, der aus Prag stammende Schriftsteller und Freund von Elias Canetti aus gemeinsamen Tagen in der Emigration in London, erzählt in seinem 1948 entstandenen Roman "Panorama" in zehn Rundbildern das Leben von Josef Kramer, eine unverkennbare Projektion des Autors: die behütete Kindheit in Prag, ein böhmisches Dorf namens Umlowitz, das Freimaurerinstitut Dresden-Striesen, zuletzt die Zwangsarbeiterlager sowie die KZ Auschwitz und Langenstein-Zwieberge und schließlich Schloss Launceston in England.

Theresienstadt, 1941-1945 : the face of a coerced community by H. G Adler( Book )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1955, with a revised edition appearing five years later, H.G. Adler's Theresienstadt, 1941-1945 is a foundational work in the field of Holocaust studies. As the first scholarly monograph to describe the particulars of a single camp - the Jewish ghetto in the Czech city of Terezín - it is the single most detailed and comprehensive account of any concentration camp. Adler, a survivor of the camp, organized the book into three sections: a history of the ghetto, a detailed institutional and sociological analysis of the camp, and an attempt to understand the psychology of the perpetrators and the victims. A collaborative effort between the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Terezín Publishing Project makes this authoritative text on Holocaust history available for the first time in the English language, with a new afterword by the author's son Jeremy Adler."--Provided by publisher

Auschwitz - Topographie eines Vernichtungslagers Feature by H. G Adler( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in German and Undetermined and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nüchtern und präzise schildern Otto Wolken, Rudolf Vrba, Jehuda Bacon, Grete Salus und andere Zeitzeugen den genauen Aufbau des Konzentrationslagers Auschwitz. Der Hörer erfährt, wie Selektionen neu ankommender Häftlinge abliefen und wie die Grausamkeit der vorherrschenden Bedingungen alle zuvor gehörten Gerüchte bei weitem übertraf. Das unmenschliche und erschütternd systematische Vorgehen bei der Vergasung der Häftlinge und Verbrennung der unzähligen Leichen wird ebenso genau geschildert wie die Zustände in Krankenlagern und die Arbeit von Häftlings- und SS-Ärzten. Auch das Schicksal der Kinder in Auschwitz, die Ausbeutung der Gefangenen durch Zwangsarbeit und die Lagerkapelle, die der Unterhaltung der SS diente, werden umfassend thematisiert. Zum Schluss schlägt das Feature einen inhaltlichen Bogen zu der Evakuierung von Auschwitz, den Todesmärschen und letztendlich zur Befreiung der verbliebenen Häftlinge, bevor die Frage thematisiert wird, wie Auschwitz überhaupt möglich war

Zeugen der Vergangenheit : H.G. Adler, Franz Baermann Steiner : Briefwechsel 1936-1952 by H. G Adler( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

H. G. Adler (1910{u2013}1988) und Franz Baermann Steiner (1909{u2013}1952) waren seit der gemeinsamen Kindheit in Prag eng befreundet und blieben es ein Leben lang. Beide waren außerordentlich begabte Dichter, Schriftsteller und Forscher; beide haben durch die Erlebnisse der Nazi-Zeit zutiefst gelitten; und beide haben die Nachkriegsjahre im englischen Exil verbracht. Sie teilten auch einen namhaften Freundeskreis, u.a. Elias und Veza Canetti und Iris Murdoch. Es wird einen daher wohl nicht überraschen, dass ihr Briefwechsel dementsprechend reich an ästhetischer Tiefe, philosophischem Verständnis und unvergleichlicher Menschlichkeit ist. Diese Edition bietet eine Erweiterung der schon laufenden Bearbeitung der Nachlässe Adlers und Steiners, die schon eine Reihe von Veröffentlichungen hervorgebracht hat. Es besteht kein Zweifel, dass diese zwei Dichter zu den bedeutendsten der deutschsprachigen Literatur des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts gehören. Die Briefe, die hier veröffentlicht werden, sind äußerst wichtig, da sie sowohl die Vor- und Nachkriegserlebnisse der beiden Dichter als auch ihr gegenseitiges Wirken schildern. Der Inhalt ist zum Teil erschütternd, aber auch humorvoll und aufschlussreich. Dadurch bekommt man einen Einblick in das Leben im Exil, in die Probleme der Verlagsverhandlungen der Nachkriegszeit und auch die Intimsphäre der beiden Dichter. -- From publisher's website
