all these oreign people Ricordate Le memorie di Schmeed di Woody Allen “Nella primavera del 1940 unathese A World on Fire foreign people Ricordate Le memorie di Schmeed di Woody Allen “Nella primavera del 1940 una Mercedes venne aermarsi davanti al mio negozio di barbiere al 127 di Königsstrasse ed entrò Hitler ‘Voglio una spuntatina leggera’ disse ‘e non tagliatemi molto sopra’” Schmeed il barbiere del Reich depositario dei segreti del Führer Ecco il romanzo di Timur Vermes sembra rimandare alla comicità di Allen È l’estate del 2011 Adolf Hitler si sveglia in uno di uei campi incolti e uasi abbandonati che ancora si possono incontrare nel centro di Berlino Egli non può are a meno di notare che la guerra sembra cessata; che intorno a lui non ci sono i suoi edelissimi comm. Fewer and ewer people around who can remind us in person of what Adolf Hitler did to so many it is vitally important that this is a topic that never dies Satire is one way of keeping his revolting ideology in the public consciousness we must never be deluded into adulation of such a creature A new generation can enjoy and ponder on this book and not let the past dieRecommendedReview of a Netgalley advance copy I have inally managed to read this controversial book and now I understand why it has become so controversial This is cutting satire which pulls no punches in the tradition of Jonathan Swift many a time you will 100 ways to Fight the Flab - and still have wine and chocolate flinch while reading it This is the way I believe that satire should work while making one laugh it should also make one uncomfortable and make one uestion the very basis of one sondly held beliefs It did this The Oxford New Greek Dictionary for me I laughed out loud in veryew places but all the while my inner demon was seething with evil laughterThe premise of the novel is simple to the point of silliness Hitler is deposited into the middle of modern day Germany without any explanation whatsoever People take him The Cello Suites : J.S. Bach, Pablo Casals, and the search for a Baroque masterpiece for alawless impersonator while he is very sincere in his motives to set Germany right While the country sees him as a comedian par excellence on TV Adolf is using it as a means of propaganda to re establish his philosophy in the minds of the Volk As the show and the showman become a runaway hit he is wooed by different parties and gets a book contract and at the end of the novel we realise with a shudder that Hitler is slowly re emergingThe juxtaposition of a historical The New Job Security figure with modern society is a common trope used in many satirical plays in India it is a useful tool to satirise modern society in the light of age old values However here weind modern society evaluated in the light of Nazi values celebrity culture and the ethics of journalism The Day Fidel Died: Cuba in the Age of Raúl, Obama, and the Rolling Stones (A Vintage Short) for example and we sometimesind ourselves agreeing with Hitler This is deeply disturbing and The New Odyssey: The Story of Europe's Refugee Crisis forces us to uestion the values which we have become accustomed to which is good IMO but which I suspect may get a lot of people pissed off A mirror is sometimes very difficult to look intoAnother disturbingact Hitler s popularity In the guise of humour only The Jumbee for the audience the Fuhrer is in dead earnest so much of hatredor the other is tolerated nay even encouraged It made me uestion the limits of satire itself To Helvetica and Back for example in a joke aimed at a particular community are we laughing at the issue or the target community For example do we see a magazine such as Charlie Hebdo satirising society or insulting religion So while applauding Hitler as a comedian is society tacitly putting the seal of approval on his dangerously eccentric ideas due to its own ingrained racism Continuing in the same vein is this what happened originally when a little man with a ridiculous moustache was able take centre stage in German politics after spending a long time on theringes Simple Art of Greatness frightening thought thatThe novel is brilliantly written in Hitler s unreadable prose I could recall my experience of reading Mein Kampf which shows him upor what he was a pompous ass with murderous ideas I think this is the root of the criticism that the novel makes Hitler likeable It doesn t It makes him silly Such a man could not come to power and commit murder on such a grand scale without the active collusion of the majority at least sins of omission if not those of commission In Where the Heart Waits fact Hitler only cleverly exploited European anti Semitism to come to power IMO By the time the world realised the depths of the depravity of this madman it was too late The novel warns us that it is all the possible in modern society with the vastly improved means of propaganda at its disposalFinally does this novel trivialise the holocaust and put Hitler in aavourable light IMO it doesn t What it does is that it diminishes Hitler It says Look guys this kooky idiot rode to power on your shoulders and once there tightened his grip like a vice Such monkeys will come in uture also Please don t lift them to your shoulders and allow them to put a chokehold on youWhich is not a bad message when one comes to think about it91116I think the last paragraph of my review may have proved prophetic Although I read this book in German there are already lots of German reviews and it may get published in translation so I ll review auf Englisch The title translates as He s Back and it s about Hitler who mysteriously reappears in Berlin in 2011 and becomes a TV star His audience apparently believes him to be some kind of method actor or nth degree Stephen Colbert character and is alternately discomfited by his unironic profession of Nazi ideals and interested in his updated ideas or example about how protecting the German homeland environment should be a highest priority which makes him a strange bedfellow of the Green party Meanwhile Hitler himself remains resolutely oblivious of how reviled he is by nearly everyone in the modern world which sets up many scenes of dramatic irony when his modern producers and viewers are too polite to call him out on his occasionally outrageous statements which they believe are part of his act What makes this the book somewhat groundbreaking is that it s a German comedy about Hitler This doesn t A Burglar's Guide to the City feel special to Americans and British people who have been makingun of Hitler since Charlie Chaplin but in my experience even when Germans do want to be The Annotated Phantom Tollbooth funny anything around Nazism is the last place they would go rather like the German tourist who tells Basil Fawlty that his goose stepping is notunny Not American Apocalypse: The Great Fire and the Myth of Chicago for us Notor any German people That said this book isn t a straight up laugh out loud kind of comedy A lot of the the time the emotion the reader experiences is the kind of cringe that The Office British version evoked so relentlesslyAlthough I enjoyed reading the novel or my own purposes to exercise my German and ind out what all the talk in Germany was about I m not sure I d recommend this to American readers It relies on a pretty detailed knowledge of contemporary German society its immigrants laws against promoting Nazism other TV shows that I doubt many Americans are up to speed on Also much of its style stems Stories for a Romantic Heart: Over One Hundred Treasures to Touch Your Soul from the author s mimicry of Hitler s oratory which involved torrents of highlown hyperbolic old Spain in Mind fashioned language in this book applied to such observations as theact that there are lots of Starbucks around or that reality TV shows are repetitive and insipid or that Ikea The Inheritance: Part 1 furniture is made ofirewood It starts to be unny and then you realize you re being amused with Hitler and you want to stop Ultimately what made this book satisfying can only be described in German Schadenfreude It turns out that watching Hitler lost diminished irrelevant a joke but not a good one is a little thrilling Not everyone would a joke not a good one is a little thrilling Not everyone would agree me but as an American I think the Germans especially of my generation are better at confronting their historical demons than we are and I m not surprised that this book both or the symbolic reason of inally making Hitler a subject of comedy and or the thematic reason of revealing the panorama of a pluralistic German society became a bestseller there However the book ends on an eerie warning note as Hitler moderates his Rhetoric To Match The to match the and uses his power of personal ascination to rebuild a circle of ollowers and an. Ce nulla per nasconderlo anzi è tremendamente reale Eppure nessuno gli crede tutti lo prendono per uno straordinario comico tutti lo cercano tutti lo vogliono tutti lo imitano Il mondo che Hitler incontra 66 anni dopo infatti è cinico spudorato bramoso di successo e incapace di opporre ualsiasi resistenza al “nuovo” demagogo Al massimo riesce ad apporre il compulsivo “mi piace” “non mi piace” dei social network Farsa satira pura comicità analisi spietata e corrosiva del nostro tempo il romanzo d’esordio di Timur Vermes è un gioiello di intelligente umorismo ed è divenuto in breve tempo grazie al passaparola un enomeno editoriale con pochi precedent.
