In zionistischer Publizistik und Literatur der Ersten Weltkriegs wird die poetische Sprache des Zionismus zu einer Sprache des Krieges transformiert. Eva Edelmann-Ohler zeichnet die Entwicklung dieser Sprache des Zionismus nach und zeigt, wie sie in einer Sprache des Krieges auf drei verschiedenen Diskursfeldern wirksam ist– im Diskurs einer Sprache der Überhöhung, von Patho-Logien und anhand von Topologien der Transgression. Dabei zeigt sich, dass die zionistischen Kriegsdeutungen auf diskursive Argumentationen und kulturelle Deutungsmuster des Zionismus rekurrieren, die vor dem Krieg entstanden sind. Literarische Resonanzen dieses Deutungsgeschehens dokumentiert die Arbeit an Texten von Franz Kafka und Arnold Zweig, wie auch anhand von weniger bekannten Arbeiten wie etwa Felix Theilhabers „Schlichten Kriegserlebnissen“ (1916).

Get Maskenball Unter den Linden (German Edition) PDF

By Hans Croiset,Mirjam Pressler

ISBN-13: 9783895613050

1935: Der vierundzwanzigjährige Schauspieler Moritz Akkerman aus Amsterdam reist für ein paar Tage nach Berlin, um dort im berühmten UFA-Filmstudio seine Rolle aus einem holländischen movie zu synchronisieren.

Er ist frisch verheiratet. Kurz vor der Abreise wird sein Sohn geboren, weshalb er sich nur zögernd von seiner Familie trennt. Doch die Aussicht auf eine besonders hohe Gage und damit die Möglichkeit, einen soliden deutschen Kinderwagen kaufen zu können, versöhnen die Eheleute mit seiner Abwesenheit.

Berlin ist verstörend: Die Flaggen, die Paraden, die unübersehbare Unterdrückung der jüdischen Bevölkerung überwältigen ihn ebenso wie die Avancen einer bekannten deutschen Schauspielerin, die Verbindungen zu den höchsten politischen Kreisen pflegt.

Nachdem zwei deutsche »Rasseexperten« ihm bescheinigt haben, dass er das Aussehen eines reinblütigen Ariers hat - Moritz ist jüdischer Abstammung -, und er die Möglichkeit bekommt, an der deutschen Aufführung von Joost van den Vondels »Luzifer« mitzuarbeiten, beginnt ein Spiel mit dem Feuer.
