There are many books in German I know of, dealing with our "favourite"
subject - Czernowitz. Can recommend a few, some I have not read yet.
There is also
some literature under >Czernowitz.de>, the home-page of Ottmar Andree, a
Berliner who has a long-lasting love-affair with the city and its history.
Here a few I like and recommend:
- Czernowitz - Jdisches Stהdtebild - Andrei Corbea-Hoisie - Publishers:
Jdischer Verlag Fraunkfurt (Suhrkamp);
- Czernowitzer Geschichten - Andrei Corbea-Hoisie - Publishers: Bצhlau -
Vienna www.boehlau.at ;
- An der Zeiten Rהnder - Cecile Cordon and Helmut Kusdat - Publishers:
Verlag der Theodor Kramer Gesellschaft, Vienna - TKG@... ;
- Czernowitz - Helmut Braun - Die Geschichte einer untergegangenen
Kulturmetropole -Christoph Links Verlag, Berlin - www.linksverlag.de ;
- Othmar Andrיe - Czernowitzer Spaziergהnge - Publishers: Rose Auslהnder
Stiftung - www.roseauslaender-stiftung.de
There are many more good books about the famous authors - Israel
Chalfens beautiful biography of Paul Celan, which also gives a good
insight into the life
in Czernowitz, and although many scholars wrote very serious books on
Celan, this is still my favourite. The poems of Rose Auslהnder, the
fables of Elieser Steinbarg, the poems in Jiddish and German by Itzig
Manger. the Jiddish and German stories of Josef Burg, and so much more.
Maybe there are translations in
English of some of the above, certainly of the poets, I think. If anyone
has such translations, it would be good to have them listed here.
I will add a list given to me by Othmar Andrיe-it has also many very
"scientific" works but contains some good reading, mainly for German
readers. And some
books of biographical nature, which still make excellent reading.
Impossible to read them all, let alone get them.
Wishing you fun and good reading.
