Erzählte Geschichte: Mirjam Pressler hat den Klassiker von Lessing aufgegriffen und ihn geschickt in Prosa umgesetzt. Erzählt wird die Geschichte von Recha, der vermeintlichen Tochter Nathans, ein jüdischer Kaufman im Jerusalem von 1192. Kurz bevor Nathan von einer Geschäftsreise zurückkehrt, brennt sein Haus nieder und Recha wird von einem christlichen Tempelritter gerettet. Recha verliebt sich in ihren Retter, welcher als Kreuzritter Juden gegenüber kritisch eingestellt ist. Ein zweiter Schauplatz ist das Verhältnis von Nathan zu Sultan Saladin, der immer in Geldnöten steckt und auf den Juden Nathan angewiesen ist. Die Autorin bietet in ihrem Roman mehr als nur die Erzählung der Religionsproblematik mit der berühmten Ringparabel: Sie zeichnet weitere interessante Personen, welche sich immer wieder bei der Betrachtung des Geschehenen abwechseln und so einen spannenden Einblick in das Leben jener Zeit vermitteln. Ein hilfreiches Glossar sowie eine nützliche Zeittafel runden das Buch ab. Ab 14 Jahren, *****, Chris Kaiser Durisch

Diario : l'alloggio segreto, 12 giugno 1942-1° agosto 1944 by Anne Frank( Book )

19 editions published between 1993 and 2018 in Italian and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quando Anne inizia il suo diario, nel giugno 1942, ha appena compiuto tredici anni. Poche pagine, e all'immagine della scuola, dei compagni e di amori più o meno immaginari, si sostituisce la storia della lunga clandestinità: giornate passate a pelare patate, recitare poesie, leggere, scrivere, litigare, aspettare, temere il peggio. Vedo noi otto nell'alloggio segreto come se fossimo un pezzetto di cielo azzurro circondati da nubi nere di pioggia, ha il coraggio di scrivere Anne. Obbedendo a una sicura vocazione di scrittrice, Anne ha voluto e saputo lasciare testimonianza di sé e dell'esperienza degli altri clandestini. La prima edizione del Diario subì tuttavia non pochi tagli, ritocchi, variazioni. Ora il testo è stato restituito alla sua integrità originale, e ci consegna un'immagine nuova: quella di una ragazza vera e viva, ironica, passionale, irriverente, animata da un'allegra voglia di vivere, già adulta nelle sue riflessioni. Questa edizione, a cura di Frediano Sessi - ora arricchita di una nuova prefazione di Eraldo Affinati - offre anche una ricostruzione degli ultimi mesi della vita di Anne e della sorella Margot, sulla base di testimonianze e documenti raccolti in questi anni
