Descrição do produto

32 rediscovered authentic postcards sent out from Nazi Germany unfold the dramatic fate of a German Jewish family before deportation. From the outbreak of the Second World War to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour, these postcards tell the story of the end of two love affairs, the one between Liesbeth and Walter, and the one between Germany and its Jews.

Novelist Torkel S Wächter:
“My father was a German Jew. He never denied the fact, but he did not talk much about it. He was more interested in the present and the future than in the past. When the war was over, he drew a line under the past, and with great resilience he built up a new life in Sweden. He promised faithfully that his children would never have to hear a single word in German. When he died, in 1983, he left behind some packing cases that were stored in the attic.
Some years ago I ventured to open the boxes my father left behind. They were filled with diaries, letters, articles and other documents, most of which was written in Sütterlin, old German handwriting, and impossible for me to decipher. In a wooden cigar box there were photographs of people unknown to me, but I recognised that a woman depicted on some of the photographs had the exact same eyes as I have, and I realised that she must be my grandmother.
Among the material my father left behind were letters written by somebody who called himself ‘Walter’. These letters were sent from the concentration camp Fuhlsbüttel outside Hamburg. I also found hundreds of letters written by my grandparents and sent to this person, ‘Walter’, who was serving a three-year sentence for preparation for high treason. It took some time for me to realise that the ‘Walter’ referred to as the addressee and owner of all the diaries, essay collections, documents and letters was in fact my very own deceased father who had renounced his old Germanic name and was known to me as Michaël.
In one of the packing cases was a plastic bag containing 32 yellowed, handwritten 5.5 x 3.5 inch postcards, stamped with a red postal stamp with the imperial German eagle and a swastika, making it clear they were posted in Nazi Germany during the Second World War. It turned out these were the last postcards my grandparents sent out of Nazi Germany to their son, before they were deported in 1941.”

Acclaim for Torkel S Wächter’s 32 Postcards:

“The way in which the postcards document and yet simultaneously personalize the unfolding of history is remarkable, and affords a distinctive and profound insight into the period. The visual display is also part of the exceptional experience – the handwriting, the signature, are part of the visual remnant of living beings calling out to be remembered and preserved.”
Barbara Lerner Spectre, Founding Director of Paideia

“I am forever thankful to you for loving enough, being proud enough and caring enough to share these precious memories with the rest of us. ”My father and Grandfather Friedman would salute you from their graves.”
Jeanie Parrott, USA

“An impressive example.”
Henriette Kolb, Jewish Museum Berlin

“It’s very difficult to put words to my feelings at this point. What a creative way to convey the gamut of emotions German Jews under the Nazis were subjected to. I applaud and admire you.”
James Sauer, California, USA

“European-Jewish history in the smallest format, tailor-made for the 21st century – an extraordinary project, indeed!”
Roland Detsch, Goethe Institute

5.0 de 5 estrelas Postcards were the gateway to the free world 7 de maio de 2014
Por HMS MARS - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle
During one and a half years, from March 29, 1940 - September 20, 1941, Gustav Wächter, citizen of the Free and Hanseatic Town of Hamburg, Germany, sent postcards to his son who lived then in Sweden. In those times, Hamburg was not the free town as it is today. Many citizens suffered from increasing pressure of the Nazi dictatorship, especially people with Jewish ancestry. Among them was the Wächter family which lived since centuries in Hamburg.
During these one and a half years, standard 15 Pfennig postcards were used by Gustav Wächter to keep contact with his son Walter in Sweden. These postcards were his gateway to the free world, since he was prisoner in his own country. A red censorship stamp of the “Oberkommando der Wehrmacht, Briefstempel – geöffnet” indicated that his mail was red by others. On December 6, 1941 Gustav Wächter and his wife Minna left Hamburg by train, from the Hannoversche Bahnhof, the station where the transports from Hamburg to the extermination camps started.
With the transcripts of the text of the 32 postcards, the additional descriptive text on the historic events of the individual dates when the postcards left Hamburg, the photos and the vita of many members of his family, Torkel Wächter achieved a book which gives a depressing insight on Hamburg which was not free then. A book which should be read by everyone, young or old.

5.0 de 5 estrelas The tragedy of a family in Postcard form 8 de maio de 2014
Por Ken Vinberg - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle
I had the pleasure of following the Postcards during their publication online, a few years back, and both then and now I must say that it was one of the most interesting reads that I have ever had my hands on. The 32 postcards describes, from a jewish family's point of view, the hardships that came with being a jew in Nazi-Germany. The postcards are bringing the holocaust down to a much more personal level, and Wächter's commentaries about the family and the events of World War II, helps the postcards become more "living". As a result the entire book becomes both a glimpse into the daily lives of jews in Germany and their refugee family members in the rest of the world, but also a very personal story of the horrors of the Holocaust. It is Microhistory at it's finest. Wächter's family-history as told in postcard form is simply brilliant.

Read this book if you have trouble imagining the gradual oppression that the German jews faced during Hitler's Nazi-regime, because the postcards will paint a very vivid portrait of this horrible era in human history.
5.0 de 5 estrelas An intimate and compelling family portrait 1 de agosto de 2014
Por Angelika Rinnhofer - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle
In 2010 I signed up to receive the transcripts of the postcards from Gustav and Minna Waechter to their son Walter as emails in simulated real time, seventy years after they were written. Every time I found another postcard in my inbox, it sent chills down my spine. The anticipation of finding out what happened next in the lives of this Jewish family from Hamburg, dispersed and living under precarious circumstances, was agonizing. However, what really got to me was the fact that Minna and Gustav wrote their messages with the clear understanding that their words would be censored. Gustav's seemingly light-hearted tone and his beautiful autography, and Minna's short addenda about family matters, relate their underlying worries, dire circumstances, and longing to be with their children again, in the most profound way.
Having the 32 postcards collected in book form offers an alternative reading experience. I caught myself more than once going back and trying to find passages that would clarify what happened to Walter in the time span between cards. I also often imagined Torkel Waechter's investigative reading and progressive understanding of his family's story and how it unravelled.
32 Postcards is a most intimate portrait of a family in a time of discrimination, sorrow, and separation. I wish there were books like this one out when I went to high school and learned about this horrific time in German history.

5.0 de 5 estrelas This is about one of my forebearers 18 de maio de 2014
Por AnneCCarter - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle
I came across Torkel Waechter and his "writings" when looking into my family history! I was born in Manchester England and my grandmother was a Waechter! His great,great grandfather and mine were brothers who both came to Manchester to work in the 1800s! His Fore bearer Moritz sadly died in Manchester when only in his 30s.Torkel was not aware of this! My grandmother lived with us and married into a Swiss German family and we were in touch with them .We did not know about our Jewish history until my mother died! Naturally my brother sister and I were extremely interested in what Torkel was writing and have followed his 32 Postcards on line.What a tragic story and it mirrors so many families in the war years in Europe. Mans Inhumanity to Man! Anne C Carter
I must also thank my old school friend Pam Jones who researched much of this history for me as she still lives in the Manchester area!
5.0 de 5 estrelas An extremely interesting book which I found absorbing as history ... 29 de junho de 2014
Por MRS. J. M.PAYNE - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle
An extremely interesting book which I found absorbing as history has told us the ultimate fate of the Jewish people trapped in Germany, but these postcards reveal nothing of the fears and deprivations the family must have been suffering. I feel that Torkel Waechter is to be admired as he shows no bitterness towards the country that almost destroyed his family and embraces the modern Germany with affection.
