Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Was machte man in Amsterdam während des Zweiten Weltkriegs, wenn ein Jude vor der Tür stand, der sich verstecken musste? Man ließ ihn herein, telefonierte und versuchte mit Code-Worten, ihn auf dem Land unterzubringen. Man hatte einen geheimen Raum im Haus, der bei Razzien übersehen wurde. Man übte, nachts aus dem Schlaf gerissen zu sagen: Man wisse von nichts. Corrie ten Boom (1892-1983) erzählt, wie sie mit ihrer ganzen Familie Verfolgten Schutz bietet, selbst zur Verfolgten wird und schließlich 1944 im KZ Ravensbrück inhaftiert wird. Anders als ihre Schwester überlebt sie die Qualen und kommt 1945 frei. Trotz alledem ist sie nach dem Krieg weltweit als Botschafterin der Versöhnung unterwegs. Für ihren Einsatz wurde sie mehrfach ausgezeichnet. Von der Holocaustgedenkstätte Yad Vashem erhielt sie den Ehrentitel "Gerechte unter den Völkern", und die niederländische Königin verlieh ihr den "Orden von Oranien-Nassau". Der internationale Bestseller erscheint in der 31. deutschen Auflage erstmalig in einem größeren Format.

Zu Fuß zum Meer, die Feder im Gepäck Eine der erstaunlichsten Reisen unserer Zeit! An einem verregneten Dezembertag macht sich der 18jährige Patrick Leigh Fermor zu Fuß, quer durch Europa, nach Konstantinopel auf. In dem Jahr, in dem Hitler an die Macht kommt, wandert der vielseitig interessierte junge Mann durch Wiesen und Wälder, verschneite Städte und die Salons der guten Gesellschaft. Er macht Bekanntschaft mit Handwerkern, Arbeitern und Direktoren, er nächtigt in ärmlichen Hospizen, Scheunen und auf märchenhaften Schlössern. Mit wachem Geist nimmt er nicht nur die Schönheit der Landschaften wahr, sondern erahnt das Heraufziehen des Sturms. In seiner poetischen und präzisen Sprache erzählt Patrick Leigh Fermor von Menschen und Begegnungen, Landschaften und Orten im Europa vor dem Krieg. Er läßt vor unserem inneren Auge noch einmal das alte Europa erstehen, das wenige Jahre später endgültig in Schutt und Asche versinkt.
