The blue stain : a novel of a racial outcast by Hugo Bettauer( )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in German and English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hugo Bettauer's The Blue Stain, a novel of racial mixing and "passing," starts and ends in Georgia but also takes the reader to Vienna and New York. First published in 1922, the novel tells the story of Carletto, son of a white European academic and an African-American daughter of former slaves, who, having passed as white in Europe and fled to America after losing his fortune, resists being seen as "black" before ultimately accepting that identity and joining the early movement for civil rights. Never before translated into English, this is the first novel in which a German-speaking European author addresses early twentieth-century racial politics in the United States--not only in the South but also in the North. There is an irony, however: while Bettauer's narrative aims to sanction a white/European egalitarianism with respect to race, it nevertheless exhibits its own brand of racism by asserting that African Americans need extensive enculturation before they are to be valued as human beings. The novel therefore serves as a unique historical account of transnational and transcultural racial attitudes of the period that continue to reverberate in our present globalized world."--

Publicada por primera vez en 1922 es una sátira feroz del antisemitismo centroeuropeo que habría de verse superada por la realidad pocos años después, cuando las ciudades europeas fueron verdaderamente vaciadas de judíos y éstos acabaron siendo asesinados en los campos de exterminio nazis. Hugo Bettauer fue asesinado, precisamente, por escribir novelas como ésta
Der Frauenmörder : Roman by Hugo Bettauer( )

26 editions published between 1922 and 2020 in German and English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In dieser Kriminalgeschichte aus dem Berlin der 20er Jahre verschwinden fünf heiratswillige Frauen auf rätselhafte Weise aus ihren Pensionen und waren nie mehr gesehen. Allein ein blonder Herr scheint das Bindeglied zwischen den Fällen zu sein: Unter der Chiffre "Idylle an der Havel" hat er in einer Zeitung annonciert und so seine Opfer gefunden. Detektiv Krause wird auf den Fall angesetzt und alsbald fündig: Thomas Hartwig, ein erfolgloser Schriftsteller mit Geldsorgen, ist der tatverdächtige Blonde. Er wird als Mörder angeklagt, doch Krause, dessen Bauchgefühl vor voreiligen Schlüssen warnt, ermittelt weiter ... Hugo Bettauer, heute beinahe vergessen, war Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts ein ebenso unbequemer wie idealistischer Schriftsteller und Journalist. Er schrieb eine Reihe von Romanen, in denen es ihm gelang, brisante gesellschaftliche Themen in Trivialliteratur zu verpacken und so ein breites Publikum zu erreichen. 1924 gründete Hugo Bettauer die Zeitschrift "Er und Sie", in der er die sozialen Bedingungen und die Unterdrückung von Frauen anprangerte und versuchte, ein Forum für alternative Lebensformen zu schaffen. Schon nach der fünften Nummer wurde die Zeitschrift als sittengefährdend beschlagnahmt. Hugo Bettauer wurde 1925 von einem fanatischen Nationalsozialisten ermordet

She walked down Kärntnerstraße and suddenly stopped in front of a display. Kolo, close beside her, felt her hot breath and the soft, full arm that pressed unobtrusively to him. And then his decision was made. "Go," he said to himself, "get it, the wife has money, probably a lot of money, and maybe a nice flat where you can rest and eat." Eat, yes, eat, heaven, the saliva was in the mouth with hunger and it roared in his ears. Yes, but, she will demand her reward, will wallow in his arms and cling to his lips. Brr, how horrible! But can eat and rest and maybe take a bath and money, money ... "Pimp!" Called it to him. "Koloman Baron of Isbaregg, do you know how you used to think about men selling love for money?" "Nonsense," Kolo answered. "That was the Baron with the many ancestors and the great career in mind! Today I am the homeless Isbaregg, who has not eaten for twenty-four hours and looks at the world from below. Man must eat food, eat and rest and have money - everything else is sausage! Go with it, eat it and then play the Zechpreller! That can be funny

La ville sans juifs : un roman d'après-demain by Hugo Bettauer( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En 1922, Hugo Bettauer, journaliste, romancier, grand provocateur, imagine une étonnante satire politique. Alors que Vienne traverse une grave crise économique et sociale, les autorités arrivent à une conclusion imparable : pour sortir du marasme, il suffit de faire partir tous les habitants juifs. À Vienne, en 1922, les Juifs autrichiens occupent les postes-clés de la ville. Certes, les viennois apprécient hautement leurs qualités, mais les estimant trop écrasantes pour que la majorité aryenne puisse elle aussi prendre son essor, obtiennent du Parlement l'expulsion de tous les Juifs d'Autriche. Expulsion douloureuse mais non physiquement brutale, chaque individu recevant une indemnité proportionnelle à ses précédentes déclarations fiscales, ce qui ne manque pas de faire naître, chez certains, quelques regrets tardifs. Après le départ du dernier Juif, fêté dans l'allégresse, l'euphorie retombe très vite. Des secteurs entiers de l'économie périclitent. Les Juifs savaient certes gagner de l'argent, mais avaient aussi l'art d'en dépenser. Le cours de la couronne s'effondre, le chômage et l'inflation galopent alors que, de son côté, la vie intellectuelle et culturelle tombe au plus bas. Vienne perd son prestige de capitale et prend des allures de ville de province. On en vient bientôt à souhaiter secrètement le retour des Juifs... EXTRAITS " De l'université à la rue Bellaria, une véritable muraille humaine cernait le splendide et serein bâtiment où siégeait le Parlement. En cette matinée de juin, tout Vienne semblait s'être donné rendez-vous, à dix heures, là où allait se jouer un événement historique d'une portée imprévisible. Bourgeois et ouvriers, dames et femmes du peuples, adolescents et vieillards, jeunes filles, petits enfants, malades dans leurs fauteuils roulants, surgissaient pêle-mêle, criaient et discutaillaient politique et suaient abondamment. À tout moment, un nouvel exalté se mettait à haranguer la foule et sans cesse on entendait retentir le même
