Summary Eine Frau in Berlin Tagebuch Aufzeichnungen vom 20 April bis 22 Juni 1945 Eine Frau in Berlin Tagebuch Aufzeichnungen vom 20 April bis 22 Juni 1945 Characters ½ 2 Marta Hillers À 2 Free read Between April 20th and June 22nd of 1945 the anonymous author of A Woman in Berlin wrote about life within the falling city as it was sacked by the Russian Army Fending off the boredom and deprivation of hiding the author records her experiences observations and meditations in this stark and vivid diary Accounts of the bombing the. Poor words you do not suffice Indeed words are not enough to convey that horror We lucky ones born after the war living in the time of peace have to summon all our imagination all human compassion and empathy to be able to catch though a glimpse of that suffering and humiliation that people then experienced A woman in Berlin written by anonymous German woman spans two months of 1945 from April until the 20 of the June and is a chronicle from besieged and defeated city And because author stays unnamed throughout whole story it gives us a wider perspective and allows to raise above this particular period and extend our view This woman being herself can be obscure daughter of Hecuba unhappy sister of Cassandra distant relative of every woman raped and mutilated through and by the war Novel in a form of a journal is very well written You feel that author is well educated and had some writing experience her thoughts are clearly expressed and balanced From some snippets you know she knew French and a bit of Russian that travelled a lot before the war oh irony to Russia too She is sensitive and compassionate but her report is nothing but dry facts You don t find here any self pity she doesn t make too much fuss about conditions she and her compatriots had to endure Only unemotional report about daily food rations never ending ventures for water plundering and hunting for some food air raids and burning cityPeople hiding in the basements like some parody of cave dwellers form close community after all what better brings people together than mutual misery but it is rather fragile bond it can easily be broken The real community is created by women Because they took on themselves that first the wildest attack of Russian victors While men were hiding protected by their wives and lovers women had to face repeated rapes and constant violence It s a grim reading though there are truly heartening moments and some humorous accents as well seeing some men in naval uniforms our guide to this ghost city states only Apparently they ve taken Berlin by sea as well We certainly have enough lakes around I was trying to imagine her life after war Did she accept her horrible past did she find love and peace of mind Where did she live In Germany I could dig a bit for her but decided not to do that Not everything is for sale and I respect her silence after that diary She gave a testimony already

Summary Eine Frau in Berlin Tagebuch Aufzeichnungen vom 20 April bis 22 Juni 1945 Eine Frau in Berlin Tagebuch Aufzeichnungen vom 20 April bis 22 Juni 1945 Characters ½ 2 Marta Hillers À 2 Free read Rapes the rationing of food and the overwhelming terror of death are rendered in the dispassionate though determinedly optimistic prose of a woman fighting for survival amidst the horror and inhumanity of war This diary was first published in America in 1954 in an English translation and in Britain in 1955 A German language editi. Although this book was and still is published anonymously in 2003 the author was identified as Marta Hillers a journalist who had died two years previously at the age of 90 She was cultured well travelled multilingual and 34 years old when she wrote this diary which covers only 58 days It was first published in 1954 in English then four years later in German They really hated it in GermanyWiki uotes a German author Hans Magnus Enzensberger about the book s reception and it s worth repeating here German readers were obviously not ready to face some uncomfortable truths German women were not supposed to talk about the reality of rapes and German men preferred not to be seen as impotent onlookers when the victorious Russians claimed their spoils of war The author s attitude was an aggravating factor devoid of self pity with a clear eyed view of her compatriots behavior before and after the Nazi regime s collapse everything she wrote flew in the face of the reigning post war complacency and amnesiaAfter that she would not allow the book to be published again She had been abused by a whole new bunch of people So it had to wait another 50 years until her death and a new translation and then only then could people take the harsh truth she was recordingWe her present readers have to deal with the fact that Marta Hillers worked for the Nazis throughout the war but as Wiki says kindly I suppose she was probably not a member of the Nazi Party In Samuel Richardson s Pamela in Bram Stoker s Dracula in Liaisons Dangereuses and a thousand other epistolatory novels the reader s credulity is strained by the characters continually finding the time in their busy adventures to write a detail crammed account of the exciting events of the day It s one of those literary devices that has always seemed completely unrealistic to me But this book appears to prove it can and has been done just like that During the longeurs between being bombed scavenging for food and being attacked by Russian soldiers Marta Hiller writes with pinpoint immediacy and with remarkable fluency A TRUTH ABOUT WAR INSTEAD OF THE USUAL EVASIONS AND EUPHEMISMSHere is the truth soldiers all of them from commanders down to the lowly infantry who conuer enemy territory regard the rape of women as their right They don t even stop to consider the concept of rape It s not rape to the soldiers it s payback for what the enemy did to their sisters daughters and wives maybe but also mostly it s just because they want to There is no such thing as military discipline in the chaos of an advancing front line In most cases there is a deliberate policy of allowing wholesale rape for various reasons let the men blow off some steam relax take a little pleasure and let the enemy feel our wrath You heard about the sack of Rome the fall of Troy the collapse of the Third Reich all these big yet soothingly distant words sack fall collapse But this diary gives you the hour by hour of what actually happens when an invading army fights through your city street by street and engulfs your own street Then what happens to the civilians If you re female you are expecting to be raped Maybe you can stash your daughter in some hideyhole Maybe you can dress as a man Maybe you can use make up to make yourself look older That s ironic right The older ones over 50 say can be glad for their faded looks All other females expect their turn will come It usually doesn t come by rough seizing what happens is that a couple of soldiers just turn up at your door push it open and invite you to sit down for a couple of friendly drinks They re smiling they re happy souls look they have brought vodka there s no reason to become alarmed Or one will turn up unannounced around ten at night looking for a place to sleep It s your bed he has in mind not the sofaWhat Marta does and what we imagine other resourceful women doing or trying to do is after the first onslaught by drunken suaddies find herself a protector an officer type who she will allow to rape her regularly on the understanding that he will keep others away This works until the hurly burly of the war drags her first Russian officer away she has to get a new one pronto or the suaddies will be back And so it goes Outside the war is still on And we have a new morning and evening prayer For all of this we thank the Fuhrer A line we know from the years before the war when it was printed in praise and thanksgiving on thousands of posters proclaimed in speeches Today the exact same words have precisely the opposite meaning full of scorn and derision I believe that s what s called a dialectic conversionWhen civil society was restored this treatment of women as sex slaves faded away when the German men came back to Berlin and elsewhere and patched together their domestic life they didn t want to hear a single word about what had happened in their absence The whole subject of rape was buried by mutual consent Just in fact like the crime of child abuse neither the victim nor the perp ever wants to talk about it I can t recommend this book it s beautifully written but it s just so grim Men will be depressed to get so strongly the sense that the soldiers were thinking of course we will have sex with these women What are you crazy You would too if you were here This is our reward for our heroic fighting Anyway it s just a bit of fun why all this suawking and women will be reminded why their mothers told them never to live in a war zone in case they had forgotten that useful advice
