内容简介

In 1989, the Berlin Wall fell; shortly afterwards the two Germanies reunited, and East Germany ceased to exist. In a country where the headquarters of the secret police can become a museum literally overnight and one in 50 East Germans were informing on their fellow citizens, there are thousands of captivating stories. Anna Funder tells extraordinary tales from the underbelly of the former East Germany. She meets Miriam, who as a 16-year-old might have started World War III; she visits the man who painted the line which became the Berlin Wall; and she gets drunk with the legendary "Mik Jegger" of the east, once declared by the authorities to his face to "no longer to exist." Each enthralling story depicts what it's like to live in Berlin as the city knits itself back together--or fails to. This is a history full of emotion, attitude, and complexity.

good writing, not so unbiased
东德国家安全部,简称STASI斯塔西,某种意义上可以说是东德的国家名片。或者,就像书名所说的,东德就是“斯塔西的土地”。这其实很好理解:在它全盛时期,每一百几十个东德人就有一个是斯塔西的雇员,(至少)每几十人里就有一个举报员。它的触手遍及社会各个角落,掌握着近三分之一人口的档案——不要说文档和照片,连你的体味都可能成为档案的一部分。东德的各种魔幻现实,斯塔西功不可没。举个例子:当被作者问及甄选秘密举报员时最看重什么个人品质,一个老斯塔西脱口而出:诚实、忠诚、可靠!凡此种种,不胜枚举。尽管斯塔西已成历史的烟尘,但其魂魄从未远去。尤其是在这样一个时代,我们没法不替它惋惜,没能熬到互联网掌控一切的时代。这就是在当下读这本书的意义吧。
I just don’t believe this is a history, and non-fiction book. The book is full of children’s and teenagers’ kinds stories told by others (but where is the documentary information?)…..WHY THE AUTHOR MADE IT TO BE A NON-FICTION BOOK? JUST FOR MAKING IT SOUNDS HIGHLY LEVEL?
author visited east Germany in 1997 & 2000 w real people's stories: Miriam who almost escaped, Julia who cannot find employment due to Italian bf, informers, mom who had a baby on the other side till he was 5. Tactics shared by communism regime: using people's weak spots to trade info/change party etc. Shocked when I googled the pic of 'pioniere'.
2021年11月在德国旅行时购于柏林机场,在2022年的暑假最后两天翻完。数不清是第几本我读过的欧洲“伤痕”文学了。这是一部“文学”意味比纪实目的更浓厚的作品,读到一些段落的时候不免嫌弃作者的矫情和白左高高在上的态度(拿中国长城和柏林墙相比我也是万万没想到)。书的后半部分更关注他人讲述的故事,而不是作者自身经历,可读性提高了不少。总体来讲各个人物和故事之间串联的不错,文笔挺优美的。之后会想去莱比锡看看博物馆。
副标题《柏林墙背后的故事》,本书作者,澳大利亚女作家 Anna Funder 有一个大胆的看法,那就是在东德,有超过半数国民为秘密警察充当间谍!当然,这个似乎惊人的数字,如果和北朝鲜相比,也许算不了什么 ... where 假设你有四个邻居,那么其中几个会协助金家王朝的秘密警察,对你进行监视呢?让我来透露一个大胆的想法 - all of them!
