Badenheim 1939 owes everything to its author's astonishing capacity to recreate the energies and confusions of innocent and uncomprehending victims who, always loyal to civility and social graces, fail to even dimly see the cruel terms of their imminent fate.

Review:

As real as Kafka's unnamed Prague ... imbued with a Watteau-like melancholy. -- Gabriel Annan "New York Review of Books"

About the Author:

Aharon Appelfeld was born in Czernovitz, Bukovina, in 1932. When the Nazis swept east, his mother was killed, and he was transported to the labor camp at Transnistria, from which he soon escaped. For the next three years, he wandered in the forests. Sometime in 1944, he was picked up by the Red Army, served in field kitchens in Ukraine, and thence made his way to Italy. He reached Palestine in 1946. A veteran of the Israeli Army, now married and the father of three children, he teaches at Ben Gurion University.

Book Description David R Godine. Paperback. Condition: New. 144 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.4in. x 0.5in.It is spring 1939 in the age of anxiety. In months Europe will be Hitlers. And Badenheim, a resort town vaguely in the orbit of Vienna, is preparing for its summer season. The vacationers arrive as they always have, a sampling of Jewish middle-class life: the impresario Dr. Pappenheim, his musicians, and their conductor; the gay Frau Tsauberblit; the historian, Dr. Fussholdt, and his much younger wife; the readers, twins whose passion for Rilke is featured on their program; a child prodigy; a commercial traveler; a rabbi. The list waxes as the summer wanes. To receive them in the town are the pharmacist and his worried wife, the hotelier and his large staff, the pastry shop owner and his irritable baker, Sally and Gertie (two quite respectable prostitutes), and, mysteriously, the bland inspectors from the Sanitation Department. The story unfolds as matter-of-factly as a Chekhov play. The characters on stage are so deeply held by their defensive daily trivia that they manage to misconstrue every signal of their fate. Finally, the vacationers, whose numbers have now increased by the forced crowding-in of other Jews hardly on vacation, become de facto prisoners in their familiar resort; their vacation begins to take on the lineaments of undefined disaster. The text builds a sense of foreboding in which each human detail is so persuasive, so right in its fidelity to the terrible evasions of the time, that it leaves us transformed by what we and the author know must, and will, happen to Badenheims visitors. Badenheim 1939 owes everything to its authors astonishing capacity to recreate the energies and confusions of innocent and uncomprehending victims who, always loyal to civility and social graces, fail to even dimly see the cruel terms of their imminent fate.
