By Karl Jaspers

Almost immediately after the Nazi govt fell, a philosophy professor at Heidelberg college lectured on a subject matter that burned the cognizance and judgment of right and wrong of considering Germans. Are the German humans guilty?These lectures through Karl Jaspers, a superb eu thinker, attracted extensive consciousness between German intellectuals and scholars; they looked as if it would supply a route to sanity and morality in a disordered international. Jaspers, a life-long liberal, tried during this publication to debate rationally an issue that had so far evoked purely warmth and fury.

The regime used Volksgemeinschaft to outline who belonged to the nationwide Socialist 'community' and who didn't.

The Volksgemeinschaft idea was once no longer strictly outlined, which intended that it used to be quite marked through a plurality of which means and emphasis which ended in more than a few readings within the 3rd Reich, drawing in humans from many social and political backgrounds.

Lisboa. Un melodrama

By Leopoldo Brizuela

Lisboa, noviembre de 1942. Portugal recibe un ultimátum para entrar en l. a. guerra. El terror a l. a. ocupación nazi o al bombardeo aliado se adueña de Lisboa. En ese contexto, el cónsul de otro país impartial, l. a. Argentina, atrae los angeles atención al anunciar sorpresivamente los angeles donación de un cargamento de cereales, cuyo destinatario concreto no revelará hasta que el gobierno, cada vez más receloso, autorice el desembarco de los angeles carga.

En una sola y larguísima noche, mientras miles de refugiados de toda Europa esperan l. a. partida del barco Boa Esperança para ponerse a salvo de los nazis, l. a. gesta del cónsul argentino es el cedazo en que se entrecruzan, como en un folletín, las "historias más secretas" de un período único en los angeles historia. El propio cónsul, los angeles mítica pareja de Tania y Armando Discépolo, los angeles cantante de fados Amália, y el misterioso Ricardo De Sanctis, que asegura ser banquero y "refugiado personal" del Cardenal de Lisboa.

Erizada de sentimientos, emociones y pasiones, excesiva como todo melodrama, prodigiosa en l. a. creación de climas e intensamente atractiva en las confesiones que los personajes intercambian, Lisboa tiene los angeles precisión arquitectónica de una ambiciosa pieza teatral y musical, en los angeles que del coro multitudinario emergen los solistas para hacer oír sus deseos y padecimientos.

La crítica ha dicho...

«Me parece que Lisboa. Un melodrama, además también de una investigación amorosa, es el tipo de novela que se está obligado a escribir si se quiere ser un novelista de verdad.»
J. Ernesto Ayala-Dip, El País

«Como una suerte de Pirandello contemporáneo de los angeles narrativa argentina, en el teatro que monta Brizuela los seres están desnudos. Algunos actores engañosamente secundarios tienen sus momentos de gloria, como el secretario del consulado y su patética mujercita (Ordónez y Sofía), el maestro de canto de Carlos Gardel, Eugénio de Oliveira, y un joven, Ricardo de Sanctis, que asegura ser "refugiado" own del cardenal de Lisboa, entre tantos otros dentro un elenco inusual para las novelas de estos tiempos.»
