Mephisto by Klaus Mann( Book )

216 editions published between 1936 and 2015 in 20 languages and held by 1,781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hendrik Hofgen is a man obsessed with becoming a famous actor. When the Nazis come to power in Germany, he willingly renounces his Communist past and deserts his wife and mistress in order to keep on performing. His diabolical performance as Mephistopheles in Faust proves to be the stepping-stone he yearned for: attracting the attention of Hermann Gö̈ring, it wins Hofgen an appointment as head of the State Theatre. The rewards - the respect of the public, a castle-like villa, a place in Berlin's highest circles - are beyond his wildest dreams. But the moral consequences of his betrayals begin to haunt him, turning his dreamworld into a nightmare."--Amazon.com

Here is the story of young Karl Rossman, who, following an incident involving a housemaid, is banished by his parents to America. With unquenchable optimism and in the company of two comic-sinister companions, he throws himself into misadventure, eventually heading towards Oklahoma, where a career in the theater beckons. Though we can never know how Kafka planned to end the novel, Harman's superb translation allows us to appreciate, as closely as possible, what Kafka did commit to the page

Um sie herum gruppieren sich andere, denen die Emigration zum Schicksal wird

Six stories set during the liberation of Italy at the end of World War II, taking place as the Allies moved north, from Sicily to the Po Valley. Rossellini's film is unusual in that it relies on non-actors to tell the story of the Allies advance through Italy. The first segment takes place in Sicily where an American G.I. meets a Sicilian girl during the Allied landing. In the last segment, the Allies have advanced to the Po valley. Italian partisans and OSS commandos engage with retreating German forces in the marshlands surrounding the Po river. The Germans retalitate by executing all the inhabitants of a nearby village
