1. Gunter Grass And Gdansk
Born in Gdansk Wrzeszcz in 1927, Gunter Grass and his most famous works are inextricably linked with the historic city.
Gunter Grass and Gdansk Born in 1927, in what was then the German Danzig , Gunter Grass became the voice for the generation of Germans who grew up during the reign of Nazism. His stated goal, the goal of all writers, was to provide ‘mouth-to-ear’ resuscitation for a humanity that would be lost without it. In 1999, Grass won the Nobel Prize for literature and is most known for his 1959 novel ‘Blechtrommel’ or ‘The Tin Drum.’
Grass’ father was German, while his mother was Kashubian (a distinct Slavic ethnic group from the region around Gdansk ). As a young man, he was a member of the Hitler Youth and in 1945 he was wounded in the Second World War. After being released from an American POW camp, he worked in a potash mine and as a stonemason, before enrolling in art schools in Berlin and Dusseldorf. 'The Tin Drum' was actually his first novel and to this day it remains his defining work. It was the first part of the ‘Danzig Trilogy’ which was completed with ‘Cat and Mouse’ (1961) and 'Dog Years' (1963). Due to his personal experience and its historic legacy, Gdansk was the setting for these novels and his works are celebrated by Germans and Poles alike despite the tension and bitterness that still exists as a result of a debated history. 'The Tin Drum' tells the story of a young boy born in Danzig named Oskar, who, at the age of three, refuses to grow in protest of the adult world. Oskar communicates only through a tin drum, but through his eyes the reader becomes a part of the tumultuous world of Danzig/Gdansk in the 1940’s.

BIOGRAPHY Gunter Grass, recipient of the 1999 Nobel Prize for Literature, was born in Danzig, Poland. He was educated at the Academy of Art in Duseldorf, and the Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin, and Dusseldorf Kunstakademie in Frankfurt. While a student he worked as a tombstone cutter and a jazz drummer. At the age of 16 he was drafted to serve in the German army. During World War II he was captured by the Americans as a prisoner of war. He was released in 1946 after the war ended. Grass became a member of Gruppe 47 in 1955, and a year later he published his first work, a volume of poetry entitled DIE VORZUGE DER WINDHUHNER. He has also written novels, plays, and essays. His first novel, DIE BLECHTROMMEL (THE TIN DRUM), was very successful. His writings generally address social and political issues. Grass was a supporter of the Social Democrat Party in Germany in the 1960s, and he campaigned for both Willy Brandt and Gerhard Schroder. Both Social Democrats won their elections to become Chancellor of Germany. Grass is a recipient of the Georg Buechner Prize and the Thomas Mann Prize. Grass currently lives with his wife in Behlendorf, Germany.

    Gunter Grass:
    Tin Drum
    Granted: I am an inmate of a mental hospital; my keeper is watching me, he never lets me out of his sight; there's a peephole in the door, and my keeper's eye is the shade of brown that can never see through a blue-eyed type like me.
    So you see, my keeper can't be an enemy. I've come to be very fond of him; when he stops looking at me from behind the door and comes into the room, I tell him incidents from my life, so he can get to know me in spite of the peephole between us. He seems to treasure my stories, because every time I tell him some fairy tale, he shows his gratitude by bringing out his latest knot construction. I wouldn't swear that he's an artist. But I am certain that an exhibition of his creations would be well received by the press and attract a few purchasers. He picks up common pieces of string in the patients' rooms after visiting hours, disentangles them, and works them up into elaborate contorted spooks; then he dips them in plaster, lets them harden, and mounts them on knitting needles that he fastens to little wooden pedestals.
    He often plays with the idea of coloring his works. l advise him against it, taking my white enamel bed as an example and bidding him try to imagine how this most perfect of all beds would look if painted in many colors. He raises his hands in horror, tries to give his rather expressionless face an expression of extreme disgust, and abandons his polychrome projects.

Even in his pursuit of the ultimate truth and quest for his God, he produced garbage. By his garbage, which lay stratum upon stratum, he could always one had only to dig be known. For more long-lived than man is his refuse. Garbage alone lives after him. GUNTER GRASS, The Rat [America is] the land where people find whatever they have lost. GUNTER GRASS, The Tin Drum People have always told tales. Long before humanity learned to write and gradually became literate, everybody told tales to everybody else and everybody listened to everybody else's tales. Before long it became clear that some of the still illiterate storytellers told more and better tales than others, that is, they could make more people believe their lies. GUNTER GRASS, Nobel Lecture, Dec. 7, 1999 Today I know that everything watches, that nothing goes unseen, and that even wallpaper has a better memory than ours. It isn't God in His Heaven that sees all. A kitchen chair, a coat-hanger, a half-filled ash tray, or the wooden replica of a woman named Niobe, can perfectly well serve as an unforgetting witness to every one of our acts. GUNTER GRASS

    (Reviewed by Mary Whipple AUG 24, 2003) Like the movement of a crab, this new novel by Nobel Prize winner Günter Grass "scuttl[es] backward to move forward," telling the story of the World War II sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff on January 30, 1945, and its long-term effects on three generations of one German family. In what was probably the greatest maritime disaster of all times, nine thousand men, women, and children perished when the ship was torpedoed on a trip to Norway. Moving, crab-like, back and forth among details of the disaster, stories of the three characters involved in events leading up to it, and the on-going saga of the novel's speaker and his family, Grass brings his story and characters to life, expanding our view of the war and its aftermath, and showing how Germany's sociopolitical thinking changed (or didn't change) from the war to the present. Wilhelm Gustloff, for whom the fateful ship was named, was a party functionary in the early days of the Reich, recruiting thousands of Nazi members until 1936, when he was assassinated in Switzerland by a Jew, David Frankfurter. Nine years later, in 1945, Aleksandr Marinesko, a Soviet submarine captain, launched the torpedos which sank the Wilhelm Gustloff, named for the "martyr" of 1936.

    In Praise of Yasar Kemal
    Dear Yasar Kemal, you must have had your reasons for proposing me as a speaker for this occasion. I was glad to respond to your wishes and yield to the temptation to glide inland from the Mediterranean, over the flat muddy fields along the coast, then over the lands of Cukorova with its cover of blackberry bushes, wild vines and reeds, then farther inland over the swamps, and then once again over rich farmland, myrrh-fragrant hills, plateaus, including Dikenliduzu with its five villages, where one can already see the snow-covered peaks of the Taurus. I, too, am well-acquainted with that kind of obsession. That clinging to long lost provinces. For wherever else my sentences may have led, each of them had its roots between the flats of the Vistula and the hills of Kashubia, in the city of Danzig and its suburb Langfuhr, and in the strands along the Baltic Sea. There lie my American southern states, there I lost my Dublin, there extends my Kirghiz Steppe, and there, too, lies my Cukurova.

    Critical Outakes: Gunter Grass on Memory
    Last month, Gunter Grass published his memoir, " Peeling the Onion," which described his journey to becoming a writer, his infatuation with the army, and his enlistment in the Nazi troops and belief in its cause. It is a powerful, odd, beautifully structured book about the fallibility of memory and the distance that puts between an almost elderly elder statesman and the young man he was six decades ago. However one feels about the way Grass has made public his time in the Waffen SS he says he spoke of it in the '60s and no one in Germany paid it any attention the measured, sometimes mysterious way he peels and peels away at the self he once was is riveting. I asked him a few questions about memory when he was in New York the other week and here is what he said:
    Q : Is it extremely important for Germany to remember that memory is imperfect?

    The Gruesome Consequences of a Political Idea
    THE BLACK BOOK OF COMMUNISM By Stephane Courtois, Nicholas Weth, et. al (HARVARD UNIV PRESS, 858 PAGES, $37.50)
    The history of communism has not just been about terror, torture deportations and massacres. It has also been about the illusions of Western intellectuals. Whether it is Gunter Grass receiving the Nobel Prize partly for his novelistic effusions about the coziness of East Germany or revisionist historians playing down Stalin's culpability for the great purges, communism has enjoyed, and continues to enjoy, a reputation as an ideology that supposedly pursued lofty humanitarian ends, even if it went astray at times. Indeed, the big intellectual no-no has been to liken it to the other great totalitarian movement of the 20th century-Nazism.
    So when "The Black Book of Communism" appeared in Europe in 1997 detailing communism's crimes, it created a furor. Scrupulously documented and soberly written by several historians, it is a masterful work It is, in fact, a reckoning. With this translation by Jonathan Murphy and Mark Kramer, English-language readers may now see for themselves what all the commotion was about.
    In his introduction, Stephane Courtois himself a former communist, breaks with the postwar taboo on comparing the Gulag with the Holocaust. He notes that the communist body count of more than 100 million exceeds that of the Nazis. He compares the "class genocide" of communism with the "race genocide" of Nazism and states that both were "crimes against humanity."

    Posted on 08/13/2006 8:36:33 PM PDT by nickcarraway
    Nobel Prize-winning German writer Guenter Grass, author of the great anti-Nazi novel The Tin Drum , has admitted serving in the Waffen-SS. He told a German newspaper he had been recruited at the age of 17 into an SS tank division and served in Dresden. Previously it was only known he had served as a soldier and was wounded and taken prisoner by US forces. Speaking before the publication of his war memoirs, he said his silence over the years had "weighed" upon him. "My silence over all these years is one of the reasons I wrote this book [Peeling Onions]," he told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung in an interview. "It had to come out, finally." Grass, who was born in 1927, is widely admired as a novelist whose books frequently revisit the war years and is also known as an outspoken peace activist. Call-up notice Few details of the author's service were given other than that he had served in the Waffen SS Frundsberg Panzer Division after failing to get a posting in the submarine service.
