"Robert Schindel's Born-Where is a novel about origins, a novel about the wages of history. Its protagonists are contemporary Viennese and German Jews who are the children of those who were killed in the German extermination camps. The uneasy intertwining of their lives with contemporary Germans and Austrians constitutes the panoramic epic that the Viennese author unfolds with keen insight and mordant humor." "The protagonist is a concentration-camp survivor, who is summoned back to Vienna to testify at a belated war-crimes trial. In the course of his reluctant return, he meets the past and the present in Austria, making readers aware of how things were and how much of history and of the legacy of racism still lingers on today." "This confrontation/assimilation makes for, among other things, an intergenerational, psychological ghost story. Born-Where touches on every aspect of the unresolved and perhaps unresolvable relations between contemporary Germans/Austrians and Jews. One subtheme concerns the Left's resistance to Nazism. Another takes us inside the workings of contemporary Austrian bureaucracy. There are also the invariably impossible romantic relationships between Jews and Germans." --Book Jacket

Österreich in den 1980ern, den Waldheimjahren. Drei Kulturkämpfe sind untrennbar verbunden: ein neuer Staatspräsident, ein Antifaschismusdenkmal und "das" Theater - die Burg. Inmitten dieser Auseinandersetzungen kämpft ein Einzelner gegen das Vergessen und Verdrängen: der Spanienveteran und KZ-Überlebende Edmund Fraul. Dem Lager nie entkommen, bis ins Mark kalt, merkt er selbst, dass er Gefühle nicht äußern, nicht einmal spüren kann. Bis er auf seinen ziellosen Wanderungen durch Wien einem ehemaligen KZ-Aufseher begegnet
Dunkelstein eine Realfarce by Robert Schindel( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in German and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Als sich Saul Dunkelstein als Leiter der Auswanderungsabteilung der Israelitischen Kultusgemeinde in den Dienst der Nazis stellt, wird seine Tätigkeit von vielen Wiener Juden mit Angst und Misstrauen betrachtet. Das Verdienst des einstigen Rabbiners Dunkelstein ist zwiespältig. Aus Sicht der Nazis sorgt er für eine reibungslose Deportation der Juden nach Osten, er selbst ist überzeugt, lebensrettende Maßnahmen zu setzen, indem er die Juden zur raschen Emigration drängt - bleibt die alles entscheidende Frage: Paktiert Dunkelstein mit den Nazis oder hat er sich zugunsten der jüdischen Gemeinde mit ihnen arrangiert? Robert Schindel überlässt die Beantwortung dieser Frage dem Leser. Ausgewogen, aber mit Vehemenz stellt er den Rabbiner in einem ausweglosen historischen Dilemma dar. Partei ergreift Schindel höchstens für die Judenräte, zu jener Zeit Instanzen der Ohnmacht, die jeden Augenblick unter Lebensgefahr zwischen Pest und Cholera zu entscheiden hatten
