Produktbeschreibungen

From Publishers Weekly

In 1961, this epic WWII Russian novel about the battle of Stalingrad was seized for being "anti-Soviet" by the KGB; it was finally published almost 20 years after the author's death, when a dissident publisher smuggled a microfilm copy to the West.
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Library Journal

Grossman (1905-64) hoped that Life and Fate (1960), the sequel to his World War II novel In a Just Cause (Za Pra voe delo, 1954; no English translation), would appear in the USSR. Even dur ing the 1960s "thaw," that proved im possible. The translator compares the book to War and Peace , but it is closer to Solzhenitsyn's The First Circle in portraying a society that knows neither physical nor spiritual peace. Grossman uses one family's experiences of the months of the Stalingrad campaign to show the entire mad tapestry woven by Stalin and Hitler. Like Solzhenitsyn, he depicts laboratories, prisons, and the Soviet elite's uneasy privilege, but he also covers both sides of the front and follows Jews to the gas chambers. This sprawling, uneven novel is wrenching, and compelling in its portrait of loyal citizens who repel the Nazi invaders only to face renewed repression at home. Mary F. Zirin, Altadena, Cal.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An extraordinary book 10. Februar 2006
Format:Taschenbuch
Vasily Grossman submitted his manuscript for Life and Fate in 1960 at the height of Khrushchev's post-Stalinist cultural thaw. Subsequent to a review of the manuscript Grossman was advised that the book was being arrested. The book could not be published for at least 200 years. All copies of the manuscript were rounded up and sent to party headquarters for safekeeping. The manuscript was arrested because it dared to imply that Hitlerism and Stalinism bore more similarities than differences. Grossman made this point obliquely but nevertheless this was too much for both Khrushchev and the apparatchiks at the National Union of Writers and the book was banned. Life and Fate was eventually published because a manuscript remained at large. Reportedly, Andrei Sakharov copied the manuscript onto microfiche and the author Vladimir Voinovich helped smuggle a copy to Switzerland where it was published in 1980, 15 years after Grossman's death in 1965. The book was published in the USSR in 1989 to sensational results. Nevertheless, Grossman remains relatively obscure outside Russia and that is a great pity.
Grossman was born in 1905. Although Jewish by birth, Grossman was never particularly religious and his family supported the 1917 revolution. After receiving a degree in chemistry Grossman found work in the Donbass coal mines. Encouraged by Maxim Gorky, Grossman began writing short stories and plays. Grossman adopted Stalin's maxim that writers were engineers of human souls and his work was firmly rooted in the rather tedious school of socialist realism. Grossman's play "If You Believe the Pythagoreans" attacked the philosophical rants of intellectuals and argued that they were garbage not "worth a good worker's boot." For all intents and purposes, Grossman was a true believer.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Epic, humane, and deeply compassionate 15. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a very great novel, not merely because of what is depicted, but also because of the artistry of the depiction which, at different points, recalls Tolstoy and Chekhov.
There are things in this novel that most novelists, I imagine, would prefer not to depict so openly. A mother spends a night crying over the grave of her son; a Jewish lady, trapped in a ghetto, writes to her son about her certain and imminent death; a man is tortured in the Lubyanka; we even follow a group of Jews into the gas chamber itself. All this is, as it should be, harrowing, but Grossman is too honest to shirk any of it. The eventual impression, paradoxically, is of hope.
As with "War and Peace", this novel is on an epic scale, but the focus is always firmly on the individual characters, who are depicted with unfailing humanism and unsentimental compassion. There are only a small handful of novels that have moved me as intensely as this one has.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A True Epic! 26. Juni 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
Don't be put off by the size of this book, once you are used to the cast of Russian names (thankfully the paperback includes a list of major characters) and the various sub-plots this book is extremly readable.
The main story is about the occupation of Stalingrad by the German army during World War II. Historical and fictional characters are mixed as the story of the Russian offensive of Winter 1942 is told.
All the subplots are linked by the Shaposhnikov family; Viktor a Moscow nuclear scientist being the main character. The various sub-plots include a Russian labour camp, Viktors fight against the authorities and his conscence and the harrowing story of a train load of Jews an the way to the gas chambers of Auswitz.
Along with Solzhenitsyn's The First Circle, Vasily Grossman has wrote a truly classic book about the injustice of Stalin's Russia, which you don't have to be an expert on Russian history to read.
