  • by Otto Dix

    Otto Dix (1891–1969) is considered one of the true lions of 20th-C art, a man who established himself as an uncompromising artist that refused to temper how he rendered the realities that he witnessed. Dix’s early works often depict the true brutalities of the WWI battlefields and trenches he served in for over three years, as well as the decadent underworld of 1920s Berlin.  With the publication of this first of three volumes of an extensive selection of letters, the most comprehensive collection of Otto Dix texts at last comes into print in English. Encompassing well over 1,000 letters, and ranging from friends and family to other artists, collectors, colleagues, critics & biographers, the letters offer a personal portrait of six decades of the 20th C. Dix himself was a controversial figure throughout his life, and while he claimed never to write self-testimonials, the artist had much to say about the widest range of subjects in his private correspondence. Therein, we discover much about a figure who exhibited a gruff, often abrasive persona to many, a man who depicted war with unrepentant brutality yet who could at the same time pen the most romantic, schmaltzy letters to his wife and sketch amusing caricatures to his daughter.   Following his experiences throughout WWI, Dix immediately took up with the dadaists in Dresden in 1919 and became an established figure as part of the Sezession. A few years later, after his first portrait commission in Dusseldorf in 1922, Dix met his future wife, Martha, with whom he would go on to raise three children, and who is one of the principle correspondents in this volume of letters. Some of his most significant work was produced in the 1920s, including his powerful Krieg (War) portfolio, for which the Nazis branded him a “degenerate artist” and forced him to resign his professorship in 1933. Condemned to internal exile, Dix thereafter resided in Hemmenhofen, in the extreme southwest part of Germany. Twelve years later, he would suffer further indignities from the Nazis when ordered to join the Volkssturm in 1945. Dix ended up in a prisoner-of-war camp, again a survivor of a second harrowing cataclysm. After his release, from 1946 onwards, the painter lived between East and West Germany, never truly at home in either ideologically, yet he remained prolific, continuing to produce art until the end of his life, having lived through two World Wars as well as the “Cold War.” This first volume covers the period 1904–1927 and the heart of it is a selection of Dix’s postcards from the WWI front written to his school friend in Dresden, Helene Jakob, a form of artistic reportage of uncanny power. Recipient of the Die schönsten Deutschen Bücher shortlist in 2014, Dix’s letters will prove to be of considerable interest to art historians, scholars of Expressionism, and aficionados of Dix, all of whom will encounter the artist as never before.

  • by Anne Frank
    £7.49 - 12.99

    Anne Franks Dagbog er skrevet af den purunge, jødiske pige, der måtte gå under jorden i Amsterdam i 1942. Ingen anden bog giver en så menneskelig og følsom skildring af jødernes vilkår under Anden Verdenskrig.På sin 13 års fødselsdag fik Anne Frank en dagbog, som hun straks tog i brug. Det blev starten til denne gribende beretning om hendes families dagligdag i deres skjulested i „Baghuset" og deres frygt, angst og håb frem til august 1944, hvor familien blev angivet og deporteret.Kun Annes far overlevede krigen og udgav i 1947 første gang datterens dagbog, der siden er udkommet i utallige udgaver og på alverdens sprog. Anne Frank (1929-1945) var en tysk jøde, der blev verdensberømt for sin enestående dagbogsskildring af livet som jøde i det besatte Europa under Anden Verdenskrigen. Dagbogen fortæller den gribende historie om hendes og hendes families forsøg på at skjule sig for nazisterne. Anne Frank blev i 1944 sendt i koncentrationslejr sammen med sin familie, hvor hun døde i 1945.

  • - Europas nazistiske soldater
    by Claus Bundgard Christensen, Peter Scharff Smith & Niels Bo Poulsen
    £5.00 - 4.49

    Waffen-SS udviklede sig i løbet af Det Tredje Riges historie fra en beskeden livgarde for Hitler til at være en multietnisk og transnational massehær, som over en million mand passerede igennem. Et af de mest forbløffende paradokser i moderne militærhistorie. Flertallet af soldaterne kom fra Tyskland, men styrkerne talte mænd fra hele Europa; syd og øst, såvel som nord og vest. Soldaterne i Waffen-SS blev indsat på stort set alle europæiske fronter og i alle former for krig og ugerninger. De deltog i Holocaust, blev indsat i partisanbekæmpelse på Balkan, kæmpede mod de allierede hære i Italien, gjorde tjeneste på Vestfronten og mødte Den Røde Hær på Østfronten fra Nordkap til Kaukausus. Historikerne Claus Bundgård Christensen, Niels Bo Poulsen og Peter Scharff Smith har skrevet den hidtil mest omfattende samlede historie om Waffen-SS
