The seventh cross by Anna Seghers( Book )

442 editions published between 1917 and 2019 in 13 languages and held by 3,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in 1939, first published in 1942, a national bestseller and a 1943 BOMC Main Selection, The Seventh Cross presented a still doubtful, naive America a first-hand account of life in Hitler's Germany and of the horrors of the concentration camps. Seven men attempt an escape from Westhofen; the camp commander erects seven crosses, one for each. Only one, the young communist, Heisler, survives, not by cunning or superior skill, but through the complicity of a web of common citizens unwilling to bow to the Gestapo and forced to make decisions that will determine the character of their future lives
Transit by Anna Seghers( Book )

302 editions published between 1900 and 2019 in 14 languages and held by 2,162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Having escaped from a Nazi concentration camp in Germany in 1937, and later a camp in Rouen, the nameless twenty-seven-year-old German narrator of Seghers's multilayered masterpiece ends up in the dusty seaport of Marseille. Along the way he is asked to deliver a letter to a man named Weidel in Paris and discovers Weidel has committed suicide, leaving behind a suitcase containing letters and the manuscript of a novel. As he makes his way to Marseille to find Weidel's widow, the narrator assumes the identity of a refugee named Seidler, though the authorities think he is really Weidel. There in the giant waiting room of Marseille, the narrator converses with the refugees, listening to their stories over pizza and wine, while also gradually piecing together the story of Weidel, whose manuscript has shattered the narrator's "deathly boredom," bringing him to a deeper awareness of the transitory world the refugees inhabit as they wait and wait for that most precious of possessions: transit papers."--Page 4 of cover

"Aboard a cargo ship sailing from Brazil to the German Democratic Republic in the mid-1950s, two men strike up a conversation: newly-qualified doctor, Ernst Triebel, and engineer Franz Hammer, two GDR citizens of contrasting character, brought together by chance on an Atlantic crossing. During the next three weeks Triebel will relate to Hammer what amounts to his life story. Hammer, a reluctant sea passenger, is initially uninterested, but once the love interest of the story's subtitle enters the fray he is gripped until the memorable climax to Triebel's narrative. The reader is invited aboard Seghers's borderless maritime community from the first page to share in this timeless meditation on the joy and pain of human existence."--Amazon.com

Jans muss sterben : [Erzählung] by Anna Seghers( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Publikation der schmalen, 1925 entstandenen Erzählung einer der bedeutendsten deutschen Schriftstellerinnen des 20. Jahrhunderts (zuletzt: 'Hier im Volk der kalten Herzen': ID 40/00) ist eine kleine literarische Sensation: Sie war bislang völlig unbekannt und wurde erst kürzlich vom Sohn der Schriftstellerin im Nachlass entdeckt. Die sehr eindringlich erzählte, poetisch dichte Geschichte um ein junges, aber einander innerlich schon weit entfremdetes Ehepaar im ärmlichen Arbeitermilieu der Zeit und um das langsame Dahinsterben ihres geliebten kleinen Sohnes wirkt ergreifend, und sie ist in ihrer Stilmischung aus realistischer Milieuzeichnung, sensibler Einfühlung und märchenhafter Verfremdung durchaus typisch für den literarischen Stil der jungen Anna Seghers. Auch wenn ich die etwas euphorische Wertung vom Klappentext und Nachwort nicht teilen kann, sollte diese 'neue' Erzählung der 1983 verstorbenen Autorin schon ab Mittelstadtbibliotheken bereitgestellt werden
