    E–pub [Jugend auf der Landstrasse Berlin] by Ernst Haffner Disappointing with an awkward translation Despite being published in 1932 there is nothing of the terror during that critical last year of the Weimar Republic which we readers know was all too present then A missed opportunity to be something important instead of a familiar by now depiction of indigent Berlin street existence

Jugend auf der Landstrasse Berlin Free download ¶ 105 Od brothers move from one petty crime to the next spending their nights in underground bars and makeshift hostels struggling together to survive the harsh realities of gang life and finding in one another the legitimacy denied them by society. I had no idea this book existed until I bought it in Germany It is every bit as revealing of underclass life as are books by Albert Cossery and Francis Carco and US writers who appeared in pulp format such as Goodis McCoy Himes Iceberg Slim or Appel Simenon s stories of the effect of poverty on the psyche as well as physical safety of young people also are relevant The Brothers are a group of homeless young men aged 16 25 The information about how people in 1930s Berlin survive on the streets is as powerful as any you will find The Brothers are led by Johnie who provides their needs helps them escape from juvenile detention centers and reform schools and gets them food and drink just the descriptions of the food is worth the price of the pbk Johnie trains the Brothers as thieves of various sorts The Code he instills gives the only sense of pride and justice they will ever know and it is one just as iron clad and much honest and even psychically fulfilling as the one of the respectable citizenHaffner s powers of description are amazingly good as are his familiarity with the Berlin streets dives jails and sociopathic outcasts The work describes in detail various young men s stories Along the way he is objective enough to tell you that the City does provide shelters rations and institutions But the boys have an instinct for freedom what is freedom They know and you will too as you have not before Also highly original is the variety of the stories and the path each boy will follow as he matures some to vagrancy criminality and disease and a few to successful entrepreneurship One of the most touching tells of a father who seeks his son through the mean streets bc he needs the boy to help him in his failing business or bc he loves and needs him or both

Jugend auf der Landstrasse Berlin Free download ¶ 105 Originally published in 1932 and banned by the Nazis one year later Blood Brothers follows a gang of young boys bound together by unwritten rules and mutual loyalty Blood Brothers is the only known novel by German social worker and journalist. I was drawn to take this book out at our local library by the subject matter Germany 1930s Berlin and the sort of background that features in some of Philip Kerr s Bernie Gunther books I have been to Berlin on several occasions and I fear that the author Ernst Haffner a journalist and social worker who disappeared along with all records in WW2 may most likely have been a victim of the Nazi regime perhaps even meeting his end at the notorious Sachsenhausen campIt s an excellent read but depressing to realise that conditions for young men like the boys featured in this novel are still very far from getting the help they need to have a better life The youth detention centres in Britain have a very high suicide rate and apparently are still brutal The novel also gives extra pause for thought about what is behind the appearance of so many homeless youngsters on our streets around the worldOne thing I did find surprising was that even this writer clearly compassionate as he is has still apparently been influenced by anti Semitic thinking at the time as to me anyway his portrayal of Jewish characters seems to indicateA few uotesOf young men from difficult backgrounds detained by the law and in borstal A youth spent in welfare or less apprenticed to crime that isn t a self chosen destiny And then prior convictions Untold numbers fail at the difficult glass hard wall of bourgeois prejudice and desire for retribution Untold numbers who might have liked to try a law abiding life for a change and But one thing he s learned in his long years of experience be it in Berlin or Italy or some burg in Silesia rich people don t do charity They d rather turn their dogs loose on beggars or slam doors in their faces Giving with a deep reflexive understanding of hunger and misery is something that only poor people do The Silesian mineworker the Italian labourer the unemployed geezer in Berlin
