Do the Germans have the right to find Hitler funny That s the mistaken uestion which seems to drive much of the controversy over this wildly popular novel in which Adolf Hitler by mechanisms which are wisely left unexplained returns from the dead and finds himself whole and well in modern day Germany What does he make of the world and what does he do with himselfHe does what he does best rapidly grasps a socio political situation and delivers impassioned rants that lead to immediate stardom An instant TV and YouTube hit he is taken to be a hilarious Hitler impersonator who can speak truths that no one else dares to in the era of political correctness The parts of Running into ideasFor the last few days I ve been reading Timur s book and yesterday I finished it That is usually the time when I force my opinion on the world it was time to leave a review on GoodreadsAs I was walking home after work I thought about my upcoming review What to say about this What did I think I wasn t sure Actually I had trouble deciding what this book was aboutDid it leave me with any lasting impressions Not really Any deeper insights No Anything lighter maybe Yes maybe This was amusing at times but surely nothing For the most part this felt fluffy the narrative remained surreal and kept me at a distance Huh So what to say about this What is the point of this bookI decided to leave my review until tomorrow and went out for a run along the Thames London lay in the evening rays of spring the sun gleaming off the water diners and drinkers lining the embankment chatting and laughing the work week a memory the weekend days a promise The mood was light the city was buzzing and the world was good I set out and became part of the urban summer Running hard for a stretch walking the next I tried to execute a techniue the experts call interval trainingI am in a walking phase of my workout Timur s book firmly forgotten when I became aware of a memorial plaue I had never before noticed It said In memory of the 40 dead and 60 injured when a direct hit destroyed an air raid shelter close to this spot in 1941And then I got it That is what Timur s book is about That is what it wants to be And that is also what it does not manage to beWhat this book wants to beTimur s book wants to be satire It wants to be scathing and it wants to be malicious It wants to be your friend And then it wants to betray you and slap you in the face While you stare at it unbelieving and hurt it wants to stand tall and proud It wants to point at you in silent accusation in moral rectitude Unforgiving Revealing Warning How do I know it wants to do all this Well from hindsight it is clear enough really Odd that it reuired a memorial plaue for me to see it Timur has his fictional Hitler narrate his story as I narrative so we are always in Adolf s head Timur imitates the historical Hitler s speech mannerisms chillingly well the convoluted syntax is there as much as Hitler s rambling often unstructured thoughts Timur is even spot on when bringing the body language back to life Hitler so famously used in his public speechesAnd as we are supposed to see the world through Hitler s eyes we are expected to discover that for the most part these eyes are not those of an evil psychopath but allow insights into the inner workings of a reasonably normal person a person with strengths and weaknesses a person who is uncertain at times experiences pain and oy and can be charming A person like you and me No Not like you and me This is where the book wants to slap us in the face And here is how The following scene shows Adolf in conversation with his secretary Fraulein Kromeier who has ust told him that she cannot work for him any We enter the scene as Kromeier shows Adolf a photo of her grandmother s family taken in 1943 I read the book in the original but translate the passage into English I have not gone to war for six long years that I could not guess what personal tragedies would be involved in this What wounds untimely death tears into the souls of the innocentWho died I asked Everybody Six weeks later I looked at the man on the photo at the woman at the two boys in particular at the two boys and had to clear my throat This photo it touched my heart If you wish to take the day off I began I think memories of the war are difficult for you Who says anything about the war Kromeier shouted these people did not die in a war These people were gassedI paused and looked at the photo again The man the woman the boys did not look like criminals like gypsies not a bit like Jews That was truly astounding I myself would have failed to arrest these people as German as they looked I was so puzzled at first I even thought I should take the opportunity and thank Himmler for his painstaking and impartial work in this matter from pp308 13Slap How dare you allow yourself to be lured in by this man the book asks I stand before the book helpless and I feel exposed Something has been revealed to me Something painful Something grotesue Is it possible that I would have let myself been drawn into the schemes of a twisted murderer Is it possible that I would not have seen
Hitler Coming Would Not Havecoming would not have able to look forward as clearly as I am able to look back The book stands tall and proud Imperious It points at me I cower before it and I am ashamedWhat I think this book isIn my uote Timur s book is all it could have been But the passage is only five pages long It stands alone with perhaps two or three other such instances in a book of 400 pages And because of that its impact dilutes hopelessly It is a drop of vitriol in the ocean And the rest of the book I am afraid to say #feels rather innocuous It is amusing at times but when it isn t and this is #rather innocuous It is amusing at times but when it isn t and this is it comes over as strangely dull and pointless It is also disjointed many of the chapters do not serve any obvious purpose and do not advance the plot In particular in its final uarter the book feels like Adolf s adventures in modern day Berlin What would happen if Hitler attended the Wiesen the Octoberfest What would happen if Hitler went out to buy razorblades What would happen if Hitler walked into the party headuarters of the NPD Germany s extreme right Sometimes this is hilarious but even at its best these episodes never rise above the status of a harmless anecdoteIn the end Timur chose a protagonist who ust remains too artificial From page one it is clear that Timur s fictional Hitler is a literary device and as such Adolf remains an abstract notion throughout the majority of the book I think Timur would have been able to deliver his cathartic face slapping to much better effect had he chosen to write a fictional biography of Adolf Hitler Now that would have been evil A Hitler who wakes up in 21st Century Berlin and rails at graffiti and day time telly Yea that makes me smile but in the end so what No chance to confuse Adolf with Hitler A Hitler who relives NS Germany as I narrative Now that would be chilling Adolf would still be the fictional Hitler but no prizes for guessing that we would forget this over the course of 400 pagesWhat this book is perceived to beAnd yet even though for the most part a harmlessly amusing book I think so anyway Timur s intended satire still managed to polarise public opinion in Germany Mostly people were unsure whether Hitler represents an appropriate subject for political satire or not Leaving that aside I found it illustrative to read through some of the reviews readers published on and goodreads It appears to me that many who liked the book liked it for the right reason the idea that laughing along with Hitler is something that sticks in your throat something that makes you think about whether the historical Hitler would again receive adulation in modern day Germany and by extension in the societies of the 30 odd countries into whose languages the book was translated But still many positive reviews stay uite close to the actual book and ask themselves whether Hitler may have been a talk show host or would indeed be able to side with the Green party I wonder whether these thoughts do not in the end essentially miss the point And I think I am finding the point when I look at some of the negative reviews At least some readers are intensely emotional about the book to the point that they are advocating not to read it or even to suppress it Views are expressed that freedom of speech needs to find a natural restriction when such freedom might insult the sentiments of others This is a complex issue and I cannot do it ustice here but we need to remember that these views are directed against a specific example of free speech and not offered as a theoretical view And this finally delivered the chilling punch I had been missing so much in the book The lure of radical views is subtle Dictators tend to suppress freedom of speech for reasons that they genuinely believe in These reasons may feel twisted misinformed and cynical to those whose views are suppressed But it feels too easy to dismiss the Hitlers Stalins and Honeckers of this world as evil crazed psychopaths who live in a world apart from that inhabited by intelligent enlightened and life competent individuals The part inhabited by us The truth may be much subtle and it is likely to be uncomfortable In an attempt to make sure that it never happens again we may be inclined to suppress freedom of speech in order to protect the innocent But it is not by suppression of ideas seen as potentially harmful that freedom is protected Freedom is protected if members of a society embed the chorus of their voices in democracies governed by the rule of law Doing so will dilute the impact of any one view and yet allow each one to be heardAnd looking at some of the views expressed in the wider debate about this book I wonder whether a threat to the op. Ricordate Le memorie di Schmeed di Woody Allen “Nella primavera del 1940 una grossa Mercedes venne a fermarsi davanti al mio negozio di barbiere al 127 di Königsstrasse ed entrò Hitler ‘Voglio una spuntatina leggera’ disse ‘e non tagliatemi molto sopra’” Schmeed il barbiere del Reich depositario dei segreti del Führer Ecco il romanzo di Timur Vermes sembra rimandare alla comicità di Allen È l’estate del 2011 Adolf Hitler si sveglia in uno di uei campi incolti e uasi abbandonati che ancora si possono incontrare nel centro di Berlino Egli non può fare a meno di notare che la guerra sembra cessata; che intorno a lui non ci sono i suoi fedelissimi comm.
characters Ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Timur VermesEn society may not come from those wishing to protect it as much as from those sworn to destroy it Had Timur been able to deliver this disturbing thought in a masterful satire I would have given it 5 starsBut he didn t and so I didn t This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial 30 Unported License Published in English as Look Who s BackWhat would happen if Hitler woke up in present day Germany How would he deal with the large number of foreign immigrants living in contemporary Germany not to mention its political agenda If you re one to scoff at such a scenario rest assured that the characters of this book did so as well with the exception of Hitler himself of course So our most hated dictator ends up becoming a famous comedian Let s face it he couldn t REALLY be speaking seriously rightThis book was yet another one in my continuous uest to improve my German language skills by means of something other than YA in genre On the surface it looked decent enough contemporary time travel and humor The addition of Hitler didn t exactly make it sound too promising but lack of sparkly vampires clinched the dealThough my reviews should definitely be taken as gospel ha do keep in mind the following I read the book in German and my proficiency in the language is intermediate at best I don t much care for politics in ANY language and Germany s political views as well as its internal issues are completely foreign heh to meImpressions There were uite a few funny episodes which made me laugh out loud in spite of myself I even laughed with Hitler s character onceInterviewer Do you admire HitlerHitler Only in the mornings when I look into the mirrorI know I m ashamed of myself too I didn t understand most of the political mumbo umbo in part due to my lacking language skills but also due to my lack of background knowledge on issues in contemporary Germany Dialect speech in writing confuses me I was truly horrified when Hitler s young secretary was swayed by his charm in spite of her Jewish ancestors who were deeply affected by the Holocaust It made me wonder how I d have reacted to such a character in her place There were plenty of humorous seuences which made the book somewhat bearable though not enough to consider it enjoyable The ending was rather disappointingScore 25 starsI suppose people with better German skills and in depth knowledge of politics would be closer to the target audience of this book than me I read an excerpt of this book and I talked at length with someone who has read half of it before tossing it with disgustThis book may read funny but to make a somewhat likable comic figure of the most cruel mass murderer the 20th century has seen is not only tasteless but dangerousShame on anyone who writes a positive review on this book Shame on anyone who buys this book or asks for this book at the library Shame on anyone who supports the author and the publisher of this book with a single dimeI am asking anyone who has a single brain cell left Are 70 million dead in WWII 6 million of them Jews who died in the Holocaust reason to make fun of And I am not even talking about those who have lost loved ones their health andor all they ever owned The murderer of all these people is not a comic figureLearning that this book has become a bestseller in Germany makes me ashamed of being German PLEASE NOTE This review was also posted on in October 2013 rejected it stating that it did not meet s regulations and guidelines When I asked which changes were reuired to make this review meet regulations and guidelines replied after one week apologizing and saying that the rejection had been a mistake then published this review without changes However in spring 2014 when the English version of the book came on the market removed my review without notifying me I have so far refrained from writing and posting a castrated version of my review UPDATE Dec 19 2014 I have ust posted an entirely new 1 star review on I will see tomorrow whether or not has accepted itUPDATE Dec 20 2014 My review on went live today It reads as follows10 out of 5 stars 70 million dead are soooooo funny Come to think of it my 1 star review of the book which took down when the English version of the book came out has indeed overlooked some of the book s merits How obtuse must I have been to overlook how the younger generations of the stupid masses could benefit from this book This book can teach them a lot So for instance1 Hitler is not a scary fairy tale figure He has really existed This is important to know particularly since it has been doubted even denied that the Holocaust ever happened From there it would be only one step to assume that Hitler hadn t existed either2 Hitler was not an alien He was human that s what so many reviewers of the book have concluded after reading the book Besides there is documented proof that Hitler was born to a no not a virgin but to an earthly woman3 Hitler was not a monster that s again what so many reviewers of the book have pointed out And I can confirm that Hitler had two arms and two legs and even some kind of a head he didn t have horns nor did he spit #FIRE AND HE T EVEN AN EUINE #and didn t even have an euine foot Thus was lucky Because had he been deformed in any way he might have felt compelled to have himself euthanized4 Hitler was somewhat likable at least that s what so many re Most people have praised this witty satire though a few elderly Germans and Holocaust survivors seem for some unaccountable reason to find it offensive I do not properly understand their objections and have decided to follow the majority opinion My own contribution to this new and exciting genre is a screenplay based on the life of the late Jimmy Savile the celebrated English entertainer and serial pedophile Although in form a lighthearted sex comedy the work needless to say in no way condones pedophilia My aim rather is to draw attention to the cult of celebrity and the increasing sexualization of young children both of which I deploreAt risk of sounding immodest I am rather proud of my little piece It contains references to an eclectic mixture of highbrow and lowbrow sources both Lolita and Come Play With Me I am particularly pleased with the seuence where Savile rapes an eight year old Rwandan refugee which cleverly parodies an episode from Black Emmanuelle Meets the Wife Swappers Honestly if this doesn t alert you to the appalling danger posed by celebrity pedophiles then nothing willI have shown my draft to a number of people and met varying reactions Subjects under the age of five are generally positive though a few of the older ones complain that the sex is too tame Adults however seem very reserved Some have even gone so far as to say that they find my screenplay tasteless and insensitive to the plight of Savile s many victims I have no idea what they are talking about Can someone help meHey Jonathan Maitland has stolen my idea Update 24th July 2014I think I can now safely assume that it s a generational thing There s been a rather heated argument with an older female reviewer of this book and I figured I d ask my grandparents about their opinions on the book My grandmother was born in 1937 in northern Germany my grandfather 1933 eually in nothern Germany As Although I read this book in German there are already lots of German reviews and it may get published in translation so I ll review auf Englisch The title translates as He s Back and it s about Hitler who mysteriously reappears in Berlin in 2011 and becomes a TV star His audience apparently believes him to be some kind of method actor or nth degree Stephen Colbert character and is alternately discomfited by his unironic profession of Nazi ideals and interested in his updated ideas for example about how protecting the German homeland environment should be a highest priority which makes him a strange bedfellow of the Green party Meanwhile Hitler himself remains resolutely oblivious of how reviled he is by nearly everyone in the modern world which sets up many scenes of dramatic irony when his modern producers and viewers are too polite to call him out on his occasionally outrageous statements which they believe are part of his act What makes this the book somewhat groundbreaking is that it s a German comedy about Hitler This doesn t feel special to Americans and British people who have been making fun of Hitler since Charlie Chaplin but in my experience even when Germans do want to be funny anything around Nazism is the last place they would go rather like the German tourist who tells Basil Fawlty that his goose stepping is not funny Not for us Not for any German people That said this book isn t a straight up laugh out loud kind of comedy A lot of the the time the emotion the reader experience I have finally managed to read this controversial book and now I understand why it has become so controversial This is cutting satire which pulls no punches in the tradition of Jonathan Swift many a time you will flinch while reading it This is the way I believe that satire should work while making one laugh it should also make one uncomfortable and make one uestion the very basis of one s fondly held beliefs It did this for me I laughed out loud in very few places but all the while my inner demon was seething with evil laughterThe premise of the novel is simple to the point of silliness Hitler is deposited into the middle of modern day Germany without any explanation whatsoever People take him for a flawless impersonator while he is very sincere in his motives to set Germany right While the country sees him as a comedian par excellence on TV Adolf is using it as a means of propaganda to re establish his philosophy in the minds of the Volk As the show and the showman become a runaway hit he is wooed by different parties and gets a Ilitoni; che non c’è traccia di Eva Non può non sentire un forte odore di benzina esalare dalla sua divisa sudicia e logora; e non riesce a spiegarsi l’intorpidimento delle sue articolazioni e la difficoltà che prova nel muovere i primi passi in una città piuttosto diversa da come la ricordava Regna infatti la pace; ci sono molti stranieri; e una donna sì proprio una donna per giunta goffa tale Angela Merkel è alla guida del Reich 66 anni dopo la sua fine nel Bunker contro ogni previsione Adolf inizia una nuova carriera stavolta a partire dalla televisione uesto nuovo Hitler non è tuttavia né un imitatore né una controfigura È proprio lui e non fa né di. .
