Most widely held works by Eduard Thorsch
Arrow in the blue, an autobiography by Arthur Koestler( Book )

5 editions published between 1952 and 1953 in German and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reúne los dos títulos de su autobiografía. La primera parte, titulada Flecha en azul, abarca un período comprendido entre 1905, año de su nacimiento en Hungría, y 1931, fecha en que ingresó en el Partido Comunista. Koestler lleva a cabo un profundo análisis de una época de convulsiones políticas en las que las ilusiones por la revolución rusa de 1917 se contraponía al horror del régimen de Hitler, que prosperaba antes la pasividad de la burguesía liberal alemana. La segunda parte, La escritura invisible, narra los años que van de 1931 a 1940, caracterizados por el desengaño del comunismo, a partir, sobre todo, del viaje que hizo por entonces a la Unión Soviética, donde conoció de primera mano las atrocidades de Stalin, algo que años después dio lugar a una inversión total de sus principios ideológicos. Koestler cuenta también su participación como corresponsal en la guerra civil española, donde fue condenado a muerte por Franco, aunque finamente fue canjeado. Su encarcelamiento en un campo de concentración y su llegada a Inglaterra en 1940, cierran este monumento a la memoria del siglo XX

Africa dances by Geoffrey Gorer( Book )

3 editions published in 1950 in German and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Africa Dances Gorer takes the reader on an odyssey across West Africa, in the company of one of the great black ballet stars of 1930's Paris. It is a devastating critique of colonial rule, which is shown to be destroying African society while Christian missionaries undermine indigenous morality. Africa Dances captures the rich physical and psychological detail of African village life - from food and architecture to witch doctors, dance and magic"--Page 4 of cover
