    1. Uwe Timm was born in 1940 his brother Karl Heinz, sixteen years his senior, volunteered in 1942 for the SS Death Head s Division One year later his older brother died on the Russian front near Kiev From that time forward, within his family, the author lived in his brother s shadow He accompanied me through my childhood, absent and yet present in my mother s grief, my father s doubts, the hints my parents dropped when they were talking to each other They told stories about him, little tales of si [...]

    2. LO SGUARDO ALLONTANATOEssere sollevato in aria riso, esultanza, una gioia irrefrenabile questa sensazione accompagna il ricordo di un attimo, un immagine la prima immagine che mi si impressa nella mente con la quale comincia per me la consapevolezza di me stesso, la memoria l unico ricordo di mio fratello, sedici anni pi grande di me, che pochi mesi dopo venne ferito gravemente in Ucraina Karl Heinz Timm perse entrambe le gambe e qualche settimana dopo l amputazione mor i medici militari pensava [...]

    3. A Uwe Timm non bastato questo percorso, bello e doloroso, per perdonare a suo padre e al suo Paese la colpa di aver continuato a chiedersi per anni se la guerra si sarebbe potuta vincere, per perdonare a suo padre e al suo Paese la colpa di non aver disobbedito quando si poteva, per perdonare a suo Padre e al suo Paese la colpa di aver vestito di parole reboanti modeste ambizioni piccolo borghesi.E men che meno gli bastato per perdonare a suo padre e al suo Paese il ricordo di un fratello morto [...]

    4. Uwe Timm was 2 years old when his brother died on the Eastern front, as part of the Waffen SS All he has of his brother is a tiny memory fragment of someone blond, a frustratingly vague diary his brother kept, and the word of his parents that his brother was a good kid An idealist who didn t hate anyone, who couldn t be a coward and refuse to do his part, who definitely wouldn t have been part of y know, that Who just wanted to serve his country like his father had before him And sure, his fathe [...]

    6. Odli na knjiga Ovo je pri a o nema koj porodici sme tenoj u periodu pre, tokom i posle WW2 Autor govori o svom bratu, pripadniku SS a koji je poginuo tokom rata, a koga nije dovojlno poznavao Pri a se osvr e i na njegov odnos sa ocem, majkom i sestrom Pored pe porodi ne pri e, paralelno se provla i i pitanje samog rata, nacionalsocijalizma i pitanje krivice Zrelim razmi ljanjem i izno enjem argumenata, ovo je jedna od knjiga koju svako treba da pro ita kako bi bolje shvatio ulogu koju je u ivoti [...]

    7. I was moved by this book The writer, based on only a vague childhood memory and a few terse notes in a war diary, attempts to create a connection with his older brother, who died on the Dnieper in 1943, fighting in an SS sapper unit in reaching to make personal connection through his writing, he also delves into relations with his father, who fought in both World Wars, and with his mother, who endured loss and hardship with an unassuming steadfastness This book is remarkable as much for what it [...]

    8. Uwe Timm has courage enough for talking about his older brother, Karl Heinz, died during the Russian campaign of the German army in World War II when the novelist was just a child It s not an easy choice The risk was pretty clear writing an elegy on a 19 years old boy sent to death by a regime without having any bad intention from his own, but just obeying to orders.Timm doesn t justify his brother at all From the few letters Karl Heinz sent home during the war, Timm tries to get what he could t [...]

    9. I ricordi di un bambino, gli occhi di un ragazzo, i pensieri di un adulto.Colonne di automezzi si spingevano attraverso la citt , jeep, camion, blindati, mentre i soldati tedeschi prigionieri avanzavano stracciati La grande disponibilit ad accogliere le forme di vita americane, il cinema, la letteratura, la musica, l abbigliamento, quella marcia trionfale veniva dal fatto che i padri non avevano capitolato solo militarmente, ma avevano capitolato anche con il loro sistema di valori e il loro sti [...]

    10. The classic German question about guilt and responsibility during and after WW2 Partly this book is a bit unstructured and falls into artificial ramblings which one can either find very literary or very annoying It s a quite average and still interesting family story since the average life is fascinating though at times one could forget that This book which appears to be written to find out about Uwe Timm s brother doesn t find out a lot about that it doesn t show any result which maybe is typi [...]

    11. Should be mandatory reading for anyone interested in the aftereffects of WWII in Germany Timm writes with such compassion and deep understanding of the wounds he is unearthing it is a treat He is a wonderful guy and his writing never ceases to please me If you want to read this in tandem with Weiter Leben by Ruth Kluger, you could not find a better primer for a post Shoah discussion of Germany and the Germans.

    12. Outstanding For such a short book with such a large type font this memoir covers a vast range of topics family generational problems, fathers and sons, attitudes towards the Nazi era, the psychology of dealing with Germany s Nazi experience I would strongly recommend this book for anyone interested in World War 2, Modern Germany or Modern European History.

    13. Timm s consideration of his brother Karl Heinz s role in the Waffen SS, before dying in Ukraine in 1943, is as much about his mother, sister, and father He calls himself the Afterthought Nachsatz in original because he was 16 years younger than his brother His sister was the first born, but the first born son mattered His treatment is certainly not objective, but he questions with sympathy and sensitivity He admits he could not have written this book while his mother and sister lived He has onl [...]

    14. Grandioos met veel gevoel geschreven boek waarin Uwe aan de hand van het dagboek van zijn gesneuvelde broer onderzoek doet Naar zijn broer en zijn motieven om zich vrijwillig te melden bij de Waffen SS hoe ging hij om met de plicht om te doden, waarom is zijn dagboek zo emotieloos, zo zakelijk, zonder mededogen,hoe was hij eigenlijk Uwe was 4 jaar oud toen zijn broer sneuvelde Maar hij schrijft vooral ook over zijn vader, moeder en zus Kritisch over de vader, met heel veel liefde en ontroering o [...]

    15. Ein mutiger Offizier Aber ein so ganz anderer Mut als der in Deutschland erwartete, der sich immer im Verband mit anderen beweisen musste, dessen Voraussetzung Gehorsam war, eine der preu ischen Tugenden, die den Mut zu Gewalt einschloss, Gewalt gegen andere, Gewalt auch gegen sich selbst der Mut zu t ten, der Mut sich t ten zu lassen Was nicht galt, war der Mut Nein zu sagen, zu widersprechen, Befehle zu verweigern In diesem Werk sp rt Uwe Timm dem Schicksal seines in der Ukraine gefallenen Bru [...]

    16. Il libro inizia con la morte del fratello di Uwe a seguito di gravi ferite in Ucraina e termina con le ultime frasi del diario di guerra dello stesso fratello In mezzo la storia di una famiglia tedesca prima durante e dopo la guerra, che al centro di ogni pensiero azione e riflessione dell autore Piacevole questo continuo andare avanti e indietro nel tempo, dagli anni 20 in cui il padre partecipa alle azioni dei Freikorps agli anni 50 in cui lo stesso padre riesce finalmente a costruire la famig [...]

    17. This is a well written family portrait that derives it s focus from a diary kept by the author s brother, who had been a member of the Totenkopf division of the Waffen SS It had been forbidden to keep diaries for SS members, and the existence of the diary is surprising The brother was considerable older than the author, and essentially a stranger Uwe Timm uses the diary as a anchor to develop a portrait of his family, as well as of the German people under Hitler in general.This was the right boo [...]

    18. Really recommend if you re interested in German memory of the Holocaust The book reads as an act of catharsis, of Timm trying to come to terms with his immediate family, their experience and memories of the war, and how he fits and fitted into that The delicate balance of his personal memories of his family with cultural memory imparted to his post war generation stops the book from being exhausting, and instead makes it an accessible point of entry for understanding the tension between generati [...]

    19. I found Uwe Timm s book honest and painful Having been on the other side my parents were concentration camp survivors and understanding the horror of the war from a Jewish perspective, it was deeply enlightening to read a German mans perspective on the personal effects of the war Timm s repeated quote from one of his brother s letters, Ivan smoking cigarettes, fodder for my MG speaks to the horror that anyone could look at another s life with such a lack of compassion Timm s attempt to understan [...]

    20. We have an old telephone box by our house that is used as a book exchange and I picked this book up from there Not maybe something I would ordinarily have selected Quite a powerful account of the authors family and an insight into a diary kept by his brother, a member of the elite SS Death s Head Division before he died after having both his legs amputated at the age of 16 Very poigniant in places with the diary ending as follows I close my diary here, because I don t see any point in recording [...]

    21. Another Vergangenheitsbew ltigung book A man trying to analyze the guilt of his own nation during WW2 Trying to learn about his family, while describing his brother, who died on the Eastern front, while fighting in Waffen SS Not much has left of his brother some old photos, toothpaste and a diary Was he familiar with the massacres there Did he take part The surviving brother has too many questions and is trying to find answers Very sincere, light and meaningful book.
