"Um Jahrhundert rum" hat August Angerburg das ostpreußische Pferdeknechtleben satt und zieht mit seiner jungen Frau Amalie "ins Reich". Sie wird schon bald die ostpreußische Witwentracht anziehen müssen, denn der Kaiser hat bei seinem Feldzug auf den breitschultrigen August nicht verzichten wollen.
Nun steht sie da mit ihren Fünfen. Die werden sich ihre Wege suchen, jeder nach seiner paintings. Anna heiratet einen Tausendsassa und hält nicht viel vom Denken. Minna wählt die Diakonissentracht. Fritz geht zur Reichswehr und schießt sich eine Kugel in den Kopf. Karl versucht es mit den Braunen, avanciert schließlich zum Kriegsgefangenen und muss umdenken.
Und Martha, versierte Gehilfin eines jüdischen Rechtsanwalts, sammelt die Zeugnisse von der Existenz der Familie in ihrem Schuhkarton. Fotos und Schulzeugnisse, Abschiedsbriefe und Zeitungsanzeigen, das Hiobstelegramm von 1915 und Großmutters abgewertetes Sparbuch — aus diesen Lebensspuren rekonstruiert der Autor die Geschichte (s)einer Familie. Der Feuilletonist verleugnet sich nicht — er löst sein Jahrhundert ins Episodische auf und bietet auf diese Weise Geschichte aus dem Schuhkarton.

LESEPROBE:
"Na, Oehmcke, klagen Sie nun immer noch auf lumpige hundert Mark Schmerzensgeld für Wirkuns wegen einiger leichter Prellungen und Abschürfungen, die er erlitten hat, als er sich in eine Auseinandersetzung zwischen den Nazis und der Kommune einmischte? Ja?" Rechtsanwalt Neuhaus stand zornbebend vor dem Schreibtisch seines Referendars und schmiss ihm den Akt hin. "Hier! Lesen Sie das!" Oehmcke starrte auf das amtliche Papier, das Neuhaus oben auf den Aktendeckel legte, er sah das Siegel des Amtsarztes und die Frakturbuchstaben der Überschrift: "Totenschein" stand da.
"Wirkuns ist heute früh an einem Blutsturz gestorben, der infolge eines Lungenrisses eingetreten ist. Der Amtsarzt bescheinigt schwere innere Verletzungen als Folge von Fußtritten in die Nieren- und Kreuzbeingegend und ordnet Obduktion an! Sie sind anscheinend nicht einmal fähig, eine faktenrichtige Klage aufzunehmen! Und so etwas will das zweite Examen bestehen!"
Oehmcke warfare bleich geworden und stand auf. "Ich habe es nicht nötig, mich von einem Juden beschimpfen zu lassen! Ich habe es nicht nötig, einen Prozess gegen meine eigene Partei anzustrengen!" Er zitterte am ganzen Leibe vor Wut, während Neuhaus, wieder ganz ruhig, sich umdrehte und das Zimmer verließ. "Kommen Sie mit in mein Büro!"

Ein buntes Kaleidoskop von Geschichten erwartet den Leser dieses Buches. Unerwartete Geschichten, überraschende Geschichten, aufschlussreiche Geschichten – bemerkenswerte Begebenheiten, die es wert waren, aufgeschrieben zu werden, um in Erinnerung zu bleiben. Sie sind persönlich und politisch, meistens beides und immer Menschengeschichten. Und meist schwingt die eigene Biografie des jüdischen Jungen mit, dessen Adoptiveltern in Auschwitz umgebracht wurden.
Ihre Schauplätze sind so verschieden wie die Geschehnisse, die sich darin ereignen. Sie spielen in Australien und in Israel ebenso wie in Prerow auf dem Darß, in Duisburg, in London und in Chicago, auf den Fidschi-Inseln und auch beispielsweise in Mecklenburg, 1998: „Ich dachte daran, wie erfolgsgewiss er in die Wende gegangen warfare, nachdem ihn die geschrumpfte und immer mehr schrumpfende Seereederei des Ostens hatte entlassen müssen - kein challenge für ihn: Blühende Landschaften, auch Mecklenburg würde aufblühen und Gaststätten gefragt sein. »Die Schnauze voll, er hatte die Schnauze voll«, hörte ich sie sagen.
Kaleidoskop eines Lebens.

At the start of the 20 th century, formidable younger writers flocked from
Jewish cities and villages to cultural facilities like Warsaw, Odessa, and Vilna
to search their fortunes. those writers, in general expert in either Hebrew and
Yiddish, accrued in literary salons and cafés to learn, declaim, speak about, and
ponder the current and way forward for Jewish tradition. notwithstanding, within the years before
and after global conflict I, writers and readers more and more immigrated to Western
Europe, the Americas, and Palestine, reworking the multilingualism that had
defined Jewish literary tradition in jap Europe. through 1950, Hebrew used to be ensconced
as the language and literature of the younger kingdom of Israel, and Yiddish
was scattered all through postwar Jewish groups in Europe and North and
South America.
Lingering Bilingualism examines those early twentieth-century transformations
of Jewish lifestyles and tradition in the course of the lens of recent Hebrew–Yiddish
bilingualism. Exploring a sequence of encounters among Hebrew and Yiddish
writers and texts, Brenner demonstrates how glossy Hebrew and Yiddish
literatures shifted from a longtime bilingualism to a dynamic translingualism
in reaction to radical alterations in Jewish ideology, geography, and culture.
She analyzes how those literatures and their writers, translators, and critics
intersected in locations like Warsaw, Berlin, Tel Aviv, and New York—and
imagined new paradigms for cultural creation in Jewish languages. Her
aim is neither to idealize the Hebrew–Yiddish bilingualism that when defined
East ecu Jewish tradition nor to recount the "language battle" that challenged
it. relatively, Lingering Bilingualism argues that persisted Hebrew–
Yiddish literary touch has been severe to the advance of every literature,
cultivating linguistic and literary experimentation and innovation.
