The only solution for him is an epoch of new intellectualism.

Stig Dagerman was born in Älvkarleby, Uppsala County. Translation by Robin Fulton. Quartet Encounters, London, 1995. In the course of five years, 1945–49, he enjoyed phenomenal success with four novels, a collection of short stories, a book about postwar Germany, five plays, hundreds of poems and satirical verses, several essays of note and a large amount of journalism. Then, with apparent suddenness, he fell silent.

In late 1946, Stig Dagerman was assigned by the Swedish newspaper Expressen to report on life in Germany immediately after the fall of the Third Reich. First published in Sweden in 1947, German Autumn, a collection of the articles written for that assignment, was unlike any other reporting at the time. While most Allied and foreign journalists spun their writing on the widely held belief that the German people deserved their fate, Dagerman disagreed and reported on the humanness of the men and women ruined by the warâ?”their guilt and suffering.

Book by Dagerman, Stig
  • Perhaps one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read.

  • excellent

  • I heard about this book through a friend and ordered it from Amazon. It arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Now I am reading about my home country and am enjoying it immensely.

  • This book contains a collection of short reflections on the various sufferings of German citizens at the end of World War II (they originally appeared as newspaper articles in the author's native Sweden). Dagerman's basic argument throughout this collection is that German citizens who survived the war should not be treated as "tokens of national guilt" but rather as suffering, fallible human beings who are starving and dying under the Allied occupation. While traveling through the devastated landscape of early post-war Germany, Dagerman discovered that (at least in 1946-7) the Allies had done little to alleviate the tremendous suffering of the German survivors. He felt that punishing the vanquished at that point served no purpose and that doing so only risked pushing the survivors to acts of degradation and criminality. This in turn would do nothing to foster democracy. While I agree with Dagerman's assessment of the situation (in what is sure to be an unpopular opinion for many even today), his collection of short articles whether describing a family living in a flooded basement, train passengers being deported from one part of Germany to another, or an old woman foraging to feed her family, remain oddly unengaging and hollow. Perhaps this is because, as Dagerman himself admitted, he was a journalist who could leave this ruined landscape any time he wished. This is the sort of thing that Heinrich Boll is able to describe much more pungently and in greater depth throughout his writings, but Dagerman's attempt to describe the moral ambiguity of the situation is nonetheless appreciated.
    W.G. Sebald mentions this book once or twice in his _On the Natural History of Destruction_. Though I'm not sure he had the opportunity to ***, it is still very edifying and strangely enough seems to complement _German Autumn_ rather nicely.

  • Always hard in light of the bestial treatment by the Germans of millions to realize that ordinary citizens paid a heavy price for the Nazi dream.The stories contained here bring out individual suffering of those that survived.
