Art in Post-War Germany by Hans-Jürgen Syberberg (Hans-Jurgen)

On the Fortunes and Misfortunes of Art in Post-War Germany by Hans-Jürgen Syberberg
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 713 KB
Overview: Shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, an unconventional book appeared in Germany which ignited a firestorm of cultural debate. Decried by many as the work of a dangerous mind, it was defended by the more discerning as an intrepid appraisal of the illness of our times. But despite all its defenders, both the book and its creator were cast into the shadows of unofficial censorship.

Here for the first time is the full English translation of this controversial and eminently important work of cultural criticism by groundbreaking film director Hans-Jürgen Syberberg. Syberberg, whose films include the radically innovative Requiem for a Virgin King and the monumental Hitler: A Film from Germany, turns his uncompromising creative vision to the poverty and paralysis besetting contemporary European culture.

Broad in its knowledge, deep in its passion, relentlessly keen in its insight, Syberberg’s On the Fortunes and Misfortunes of Art in Post-War Germany is one of the most profound meditations on the culture, society and politics of modern Germany and the West.

1941: The Year Germany Lost the War by Andrew Nagorski (.M4B)

1941: The Year Germany Lost the War by Andrew Nagorski
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 605 MB
Overview: Best-selling historian Andrew Nagorski takes a fresh look at the decisive year 1941, when Hitler’s miscalculations and policy of terror propelled Churchill, FDR, and Stalin into a powerful new alliance that defeated Nazi Germany.
In early 1941, Hitler’s armies ruled most of Europe. Churchill’s Britain was an isolated holdout against the Nazi tide, but German bombers were attacking its cities, and German U-boats were attacking its ships. Stalin was observing the terms of the Nazi-Soviet Pact, and Roosevelt was vowing to keep the US out of the war. Hitler was confident his aim of total victory was within reach.
By the end of 1941, all that changed. Hitler had repeatedly gambled on escalation and lost: by invading the Soviet Union and committing a series of disastrous military blunders; by making mass murder and terror his weapons of choice; and by rushing to declare war on the US after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. Britain emerged with two powerful new allies – Russia and the US. By then, Germany was doomed to defeat.
Nagorski illuminates the actions of the major characters of this pivotal year as never before. The Year Germany Lost the War is a stunning examination of unbridled megalomania versus determined leadership. It also reveals how 1941 set the Holocaust in motion and presaged the postwar division of Europe, triggering the Cold War. The year 1941 forever defined our world.
