Kultur in der Unkultur – der vorliegende Band beleuchtet, wie in Konzentrationslagern Artefakte und neue Formen von Kreativität entstehen konnten und wie diese rezipiert wurden. Der Titel des interdisziplinären Bandes „Poetik des Überlebens“ verweist auf die Zeitlichkeit der Artefakte: Einerseits sind sie als „In situ“-Genre gedacht und zur sofortigen (und ggf. einmaligen) Rezeption angelegt; andererseits diskutiert der Band die Überzeitlichkeit der Werke und geht zudem der Frage nach, welche Möglichkeiten zur Aufbereitung der Artefakte heute bestehen. Die Beiträge bieten einen weit gefassten Zugang zur Thematik aus literatur-, kultur- und kunstwissenschaftlicher Perspektive. Das dem Band zugrunde liegende Werkcorpus reicht von bildlichen Darstellungen über nicht-literarische Zeugnisse, lyrische Texte und einer Operette bis hin zu einer literarischen Darstellung der Lagerrealität und der Diskussion um das Verwalten von Artefakten.

“Nel gennaio del 1941 l. a. sorte dell’Europa e del mondo sembravano segnate [...]: avevamo letto I fratelli Oppermann di Feuchtwanger, importato nascostamente dalla Francia, in cui si descrivevano le ‘atrocità̀ naziste’; ne avevamo creduto una metà̀, ma bastava...” (Primo Levi, Il sistema periodico).
Questo straordinario romanzo, los angeles storia di un’agiata famiglia di ebrei tedeschi travolta dall’avvento del nazismo, rivela contenuti quasi profetici nel descrivere gli avvenimenti storici, pur essendo stato pubblicato nel 1934. Una società̀ ora inconsapevole, ora politicamente impreparata, ora volutamente cieca di fronte alla Storia assiste all’affacciarsi del nazismo nella Germania degli anni Trenta: passato e futuro si fondono nella saga degli Oppermann, che da cittadini benestanti ed emancipati di una Berlino all’avanguardia precipitano nel vortice di una tragedia reale, fatta di svastiche, camicie brune, discriminazioni, inganni e tradimenti.

Lion Feuchtwanger (1884-1958), romanziere e commediografo tedesco di origine ebrea, consistent with l. a. sua netta opposizione al nazismo si esiliò in Francia nel 1933, poi negli Stati Uniti dove visse dal 1941 alla morte. Tra le sue opere più importanti, Süss l’ebreo (1925) e l. a. Trilogia di Giuseppe (1931-1941).

Samuel Kohanim, Oberhaupt einer der ältesten jüdischen Familien im westpreußischen Osche, ist durchschnittliches Unglück gewöhnt. Seine Frau Mindel, schroff und wortkarg von Natur, gebar ihm sieben Mädchen. Die »sieben biblischen Plagen«, wie die Kohanim-Töchter genannt werden, strapazieren die väterliche Geduld: Selma, die mit ihrem religiösen Spleen alle meschugge macht, Martha, die am laufenden Band haarsträubende Lügengeschichten erfindet, Fanny, die nicht unter die Haube zu bringen ist, der Wildfang Elli ... – und schließlich Franziska, »die Katastrophe auf Abruf«, bildschön, stolz und eigenwillig. Aber ein männlicher Stammhalter fehlt, denn der Kronprinz stirbt am 10. März 1902, kurz nach seiner Geburt.
Nach den Erschütterungen des ersten Weltkrieges sucht die Familie Kohanim Zuflucht in Berlin. Während Martha in gehobene Berliner Kreise einheiratet und ihr Mann Leopold zum Christentum konvertiert, lässt sich Franziska mit dem ebenso charismatischen wie unzuverlässigen jüdischen Gelegenheitsarbeiter und Glücksritter Willy Rubin ein und wohnt fortan im »roten Wedding«. Auch die protestantische Oda, eine Freundin der Familie, hat es in die Hauptstadt verschlagen. Im Laufe der Jahre verbindet sich Odas Schicksal endgültig mit jenem der Familie Kohanim, deren Stammbaum die unterschiedlichsten Triebe ausbildet, jüdische wie nicht-jüdische, nationalistische wie kommunistische.
Marcia Zuckermann hat einen großartigen Familienroman in bester culture jüdischer Erzählkunst geschrieben. Eine turbulente Familiensaga, spannend und handlungsreich, voller Tragik und Komik, mit verschmitztem »Kohanim'schen Flitz« und erfrischender Berliner Schnauze, vorbehaltloser Selbstironie und listigem Humor. Mischpoke! ist ein einzigartiges Lesevergnügen.
