Kinder im Zweiten Weltkrieg

Jahrzehnte nach dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs sprechen Männer und Frauen, die beim Einmarsch der Deutschen in Weißrussland noch Kinder waren, zum ersten Mal darüber, woran sie sich erinnern. Ihre erschütternden Berichte vom Krieg machen "Die letzten Zeugen" zu einem der eindringlichsten Antikriegsbücher überhaupt. Oft sind diese Erinnerungen nur Bruchstücke, und doch haben diese Kinder Dinge gesehen und erlitten, die niemand, am allerwenigsten ein Kind, sehen und erleiden dürfte. Alexijewitsch erweist sich einmal mehr als begnadete Zuhörerin und große Chronistin, die es versteht, den Erfahrungen von Menschen in Extremsituationen, im Ausnahmezustand einen einzigartigen Resonanzraum zu verschaffen.

Ivana Bodrozic erzählt davon, wie Krieg zur Normalität wird. Ihr Debüt ist die Geschichte eines jungen Mädchens, das während des Krieges in Kroatien heranwächst, aber nie die Hoffnung verliert. Mit neun Jahren, 1991, muss sie aus Vukovar flüchten. Schon bald ist ihr Vater verschwunden, täglich hofft sie auf eine Nachricht von ihm. Im Lager schliesst sie neue Freundschaften und erlebt das, was Pubertät ausmacht. Das Buch ist ein grosses Dokument der Selbstbehauptung, voller Witz und Leichtigkeit, ohne falsche Sentimentalität. Mit den Augen von Ivana Bodrozic betrachtet, erscheint die Realität des Krieges in einem neuen Licht.

Der falsche Überlebende

Category: Fiction

Page: 496

View: 2257

Eine spannende Geschichte über Lüge und Leben, Fiktion und Wahrheit von einem der bedeutendsten Schriftsteller Spaniens. Medienwirksam hat sich der Katalane Enric Marco 30 Jahre lang als Überlebender des deutschen Konzentrationslagers Flossenbürg ausgegeben, hat sein Leiden öffentlich erzählt, war Präsident der Vereinigung der ehemaligen spanischen KZ-Häftlinge. Doch 2005 kam es zum Skandal, als ein Historiker aufdeckte, dass seine Geschichte eine Lüge war. Wenige Tage zuvor noch hatte Marco im spanischen Parlament eine bewegende Rede zum bevorstehenden 60. Jahrestag der Befreiung des KZ Mauthausen gehalten. Tatsächlich aber war er 1941 freiwillig nach Deutschland gegangen, im Rahmen einer Vereinbarung zwischen Spanien und Hitler-Deutschland, um in einer Kieler Werft zu arbeiten und so dem spanischen Kriegsdienst zu entgehen. In einem KZ war er nie gewesen. Was trieb Marco dazu, dieses Lügengebäude zu erschaffen, an dem er selbst nach seiner Entlarvung festhielt? Zögerlich und doch fasziniert bewegt Javier Cercas einen Stein nach dem anderen und guckt hinter die Fassaden: auch hinter seine eigene und die seines Landes. »Enric Marcos Krankheit ist die unserer Zeit, in der die Wahrheit weniger wert ist als der Schein.« Mario Vargas Llosa
