Yascha mounk discusses “stranger in my own country

He was the only member of his family to survive what Francois Maurois refers to as the “human holocaust” of Jewish persecution, which started with prohibitions, the singularization of the yellow star, and ghetto imprisonment, and led to mass deportations to Auschwitz and Buchenwald ovens. In this spare and somber memoir of a child’s hanging, his first farewell with his father, who leaves him an inheritance of a knife and a spoon, and his last farewell at Buchenwald, where his father’s corpse is already cold, let alone the long months of survival under unconscionable circumstances, there are unforgettable and terrifying scenes.
While there is no spiritual or emotional legacy here to offset any reader hesitation, the author’s youth helps to ensure the unavoidable contrast with the Anne Frank diary, there is no spiritual or emotional legacy here to offset any reader reluctance over and above the realm of misery shared, and in this case extended to the death march itself.

Dam-g’areeb fi bladi (stranger in my own country)

Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel is Hollywood’s sweeping take on “fascism, Nazism, jail, uplift.” Among the Oscar nominees this year (which included no lack of Nazi stories, like Fury and The Imitation Game), Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel serves as Hollywood’s sweeping take on “fascism, Nazism, prison, uplift.” His lighthearted anti-fascist film is solemnly dedicated to the work of writer Stefan Zweig, who fled the rise of the Nazis and committed suicide in exile, despondent at the rise of Nazism. In an elegy to the hotel’s fair and uptight concierge, Anderson tries to sum up the era: “To be honest, I think his world had vanished long before he ever reached it—but, I will say: he certainly maintained the illusion with a marvelous grace!”
Anderson isn’t constrained by realism, but speaking in epochs saves his characters from feeling like everyday people stuck in space and time. The concierge and his lobby boy are mythological characters who represent history from a present-day viewpoint. True people don’t see themselves in such grandiose tales.

Yascha Mounk felt like an outsider in his own country as a Jew in postwar Germany. When he revealed that he is Jewish, some made anti-Semitic jokes or asserted the Aryan race’s supremacy. Others, earnest in their willingness to make amends for the country’s history, fawn.
A poignant and disturbing look at the formative years of a young man in a country still grappling with its history.
Yascha Mounk felt like an outsider in his own country as a Jew in postwar Germany. When he revealed that he is Jewish, some made anti-Semitic jokes or asserted the Aryan race’s supremacy. Others fawned over him with a forced friendliness he considered just as alienating, genuinely trying to atone for the country’s history. Stranger in My Own Country is a vibrant and interesting portrait of Jewish life in a country still wrestling with the legacy of the Third Reich, as well as those who ultimately continue to live in its shadow. Mounk surveys his countrymen’s reactions to “the Jewish question,” marshaling an impressive collection of material into a vibrant narrative. He demonstrates that anti-Semitism and far-right populism have long coexisted with self-aware philo-Semitism in postwar Germany by looking at history, his family’s story, and his own childhood. However, in recent years, a new form of anti-Semitism has surfaced. The urge for a “finish line” that would bring an end to the country’s fascination with the past is fueling a fixation on German victimhood, which is going largely unnoticed by the rest of the world. Mounk demonstrates how a troubled nationalism is shaping Germany’s future, from the government’s pursuit of a less “apologetic” foreign policy to the way the country’s idea of the Volk makes life difficult for its immigrant communities.

In the West Wing, the 1971 East Pakistan disaster was not only a military debacle, but also a breakdown of civil society. The few voices raised against the military action were inadequate to convince the army to change direction, a course that would lead to military failure and the country’s disintegration. The author was the General Officer Commanding 14 Division in East Pakistan at the time. His portrayals of the main dramatis personae, such as Field Marshal Mohammad Ayub Khan, General Agha Mohammad Yahya Khan, Lieutenant General Tikka Khan, and Lieutenant General A.A.K. Niazi, are informative. This is an important text that anyone interested in Pakistan’s history can read.
