Eiche und Angora


Walser presents, in three sections, what he calls a “German chronicle” in which he presents characters who had lived through the Third Reich now unsure of how to deal with post-war Germany. Some of them are Nazi sympathizers who are successful in the new Germany and in contrast there is the concentration camp survivor whose inability to adjust leads to his institutionalization.
