Literature List

April 25th, 2008 Posted in History, Interview Partners, Literature & Links, Organization - Film Shoot, Research

lease post names of books you can recommend very much regarding our project.
Use the COMMENT button above to add your tips.

Here are Tanja’s first suggestions.

  • Israel Joshua Singer, Die Brüder Ashkenasy (Bvt Berliner Taschenbuch Verlag, 2005), first published in 1937. English title: The Brothers Ashkenazi. This book has also been published in Polish, we heard. Biographical notes on Israel Singer, the author and older brother of the famous Singer, Nobel price winner. The novel takes place in Lodz, mostly among the large Jewish community that lived there before World War Two, but also depicts the German community very vividly (caricature). It follows the changes from the 19th century through the revolution of 1905 and ends just after World War One…. highly recommend to get an impression of the era and the smell of the city then. More descriptions here (in German).

Israel Joshua Singer

  • Karl Dedecius, Ein Europäer aus Lodz. Erinnerungen (Suhrkamp, Frankfurt am Main 2006). Dedecius is an important German witness. We could try to contact him - for an interview.

Karl Dedecius

  • Oskar Kossmann, Lodz, eine historisch-geographische Analyse (Würzburg, 1966), hard find this book, only antiquarisch. Many interesting historcal photos, many old maps.
  • Die Chronik des Gettos Lodz / Litzmannstadt: 5 Bde. (published at Wallstein by Sascha Feuchert et. al.)(German edition) (2007)
  • Gdzie sa Niemcy z tamtych lat? Sag mir, wo die Deutschen sind (published by Krystyna Radziszewska)
  • Alfred Döblin, Reise in Polen (reportage also about Lodz) (1925)
