The language of the Third Reich : LTI, Lingua Tertii Imperii : a philologist's notebook by Victor Klemperer( Book )

199 editions published between 1946 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 1,543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Under the Third Reich, the official language of Nazism came to be used as a political tool. The existing social culture was manipulated and subverted as the German people had their ethical values and their thoughts about politics, history and daily life recast in a new language. This notebook, originally called LTI (Lingua Tertii Imperii) - the abbreviations itself a parody of Nazified language - was written out of Klemperer's conviction that the language of the Third Reich helped to create its culture." "This brilliant, entertaining, profound, and ultimately saddening and horrifying book, is one of the great Twentieth-Century studies of language and of its engagement with history."--Jacket

Die Tagebücher 1933 bis 1945 des von 1920 bis zu seinem Rausschmiß 1935 in Dresden lehrenden Romanisten Victor Klemperer (1881-1960), die alles in Schatten stellen, was je über den Nationalsozialismus geschrieben wurde (DIE ZEIT 13.10.1995), sind der Niederschlag bitterer Erfahrungen eines lediglich aufgrund der "privilegierten Mischehe" mit einer "arischen" Frau noch einmal Davongekommenen in den Zeiten des Rassenwahns und des Terrors von Staats wegen der für Juden in Deutschland mörderischen braunen Diktatur. Die wundersam geretteten Aufzeichnungen sind nicht die erste Publikation Klemperers zum "Dritten Reich": 1947 erschien "LTI-Notizbuch eines Philologen" (zuletzt E-ID 47/87), wobei die Abkürzung für Lingua Tertii Imperii stand, und worin er in von Tagebuchfragmenten durchsetzten Essays den Ungeist einer Epoche unmittelbar in seinem Sprachgebrauch auf singuläre Weise untersuchte und darstellte.

Munich 1919 : diary of a revolution by Victor Klemperer( Book )

22 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in German and English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Munich 1919 is a vivid portrayal of the chaos that followed World War I and the collapse of the Munich Council Republic by one of the most perceptive chroniclers of German history. Munich 1919 is a vivid portrayal of the chaos that followed World War I and the collapse of the Munich Council Republic by one of the most perceptive chroniclers of German history. Victor Klemperer provides a moving and thrilling account of what turned out to be a decisive turning point in the fate of a nation, for the revolution of 1918OCo9 not only produced the first German democracy, it also heralded the horrors to come. With the directness of an educated and independent young man, Klemperer turned his hand to political journalism, writing astute, clever and linguistically brilliant reports in the beleaguered Munich of 1919. He sketched intimate portraits of the people of the hour, including Erich Muhsam, Max Levien and Kurt Eisner, and took the measure of the events around him with a keen eye. These observations are made ever more poignant by the inclusion of passages from his later memoirs. In the midst of increasing persecution under the Nazis he reflected on the fateful year 1919, the growing threat of antisemitism, and the acquaintances he made in the period, some of whom would later abandon him, while others remained loyal. KlempererOCOs account once again reveals him to be a fearless and deeply humane recorder of German history. Munich 1919 will be essential reading for all those interested in 20th century history, constituting a unique witness to events of the period

An illustrated biography of Victor Klemperer, composed of excerpts from his diaries accompanied by photographs. Klemperer was born in 1881 in Landsberg, the ninth son of a rabbi.

Klemperer, who had converted to Christianity in 1902 and married a German, was appointed Professor of Romance Languages in Dresden in 1920, but in 1935 he was dismissed from this position. Because of his Aryan wife, he was not deported, but he experienced various aspects of persecution, such as wearing the Jewish star, living in "Jewish houses", and forced labor. When Dresden was bombed in February 1945, the Klemperers went into hiding until the liberation. After the war, Klemperer chose to remain in Dresden
