    Siegfried by Harry MulischAn interesting fictional viewpoint of the most evil man in modern times—Adolph Hitler It’s not that he had reached a level of evil that had not been matched before or since; it’s what he brought down with him the German nation—a brilliant industrious artistic people plagued for decades with wrong headed leaders who led their nation into wars that they rarely won but in which they fought bravely rarely accomplishing much at all except death and destruction The lands of Europe are fertilized by the blood and gore of German youth not to mention that of their victimsMulisch though is focused on Hitler the man and what we now know about him Eva Braun his mistress is the other main character Mulisch’s tale explores the philosophical influences that shaped Hitler’s mind as well as his personal experiences and his worship of composers such as Wagner and of mythical heroesThere are several twists and turns that drive the story forward like an augur or a plow in soft earth Try not to read the cover too closely which unnecessarily mentions a spoiler or two—a minor irritant but a bother all the same The Penguin paperback edition has a photograph by Heinrich Hoffmann of Hitler which is haunting because of the expression on his face while holding a child which he often did “Christ” like probably as a propaganda ploy side by side with the child whose expression to me at any rate foretells the cavernous maw into which Hitler will hurl innocents like him within just a few years The child’s face is mesmerizingThis fine little novel has made me interested in learning about philosophers Nietzsche and Schopenhauer and the composer Richard Wagner and those around Hitler doing his bidding I wonder if younger generations know enough about World War II the sweep of Nazi power across Europe and what it sought to achieve Also the notion of racial purity and how we still have to contend with it now This book should throw light on these aspects for those who have forgotten or who have never bothered to learn© David K Lemons October 2019

    Story about an aging and famous writer Rudolf Herter on a book tour to Vienna During an interview he muses on his ideas about Hitler and argues that his essence can only be captured by putting him in a plausible but fictional scenario and seeing how it develops He is approached by an elderly couple that decide to tell him their story Ullrich and Julia Falk worked at the Berghof Hitler's rural retreat as servants to Hitler and Eva Braun They tell their story – which starts as a fascinating portrait of Hitler but ends as a horrendous story They are ordered to pretend that Eva Braun and Hitler’s son Siegfried is in fact their own son and then later Ullrich is forced to secretly murder Siegfried but to pretend including to Julia that it was an accidentIn second half of book in particular Herter moves from musing on Hitler – and his contention that Hitler was a nothing an incarnation of Nothingness a zero; just as zero multiplied by any number is zero he consumed and destroyed whatever he touched to linking Hitler and a variety of characters such as Hegel Kierkegaard Heidegger Sartre Wittgenstein Plato Kant Schopenhauer In particular in writing which is similar to some of the conceits in the wonderful “Discovery of Heaven” he “proves” that Hitler’s very birth caused Nietzsche’s descent into madness These parts were very hard to follow – particularly without any real knowledge of the writings and works of the different characters and this third part of the book was the least enjoyable Towards the end of the book we read Eva Braun’s diaries of the last days – Hitler reveals that he was tricked by Himmler into believing that Eva herself had a Jewish grandparents and so Siegfried was not pure AryanNot so much a meditation on evil but very much a meditation on Hitler himself For Mulisch – like Herter– the Second World War is ever present in his work At one point Herter while in Vienna muses “What was further away the bloody business in Yugoslavia or the vast exterminations in Auschwitz? Forty five minutes from Vienna and you were in the Balkans but the 55 years to the second world war could never be bridged Yet that war was much closer for him just around the corner in time Herter clearly is Mulisch in many ways – and in fact Mulisch chose to use the device of fiction to represent his ideas rather than an essay eg like his report on Eichmann’s trial

    The premise of this Mulisch novel is that Hitler and Eva Braun had a son named Siegfried a fact that only an aged couple in Austria still knows The couple conveys this secret to Rudolf Herter a famous Dutch writer who is the central character of the novel Herter has long been convinced that biographical and psychological attempts to explain Hitler have all failed and that Hitler can only be meaningfully accessed through fiction The secret about Hitler's son which falls into his lap enables him to construct a theory of Hitler that is part philosophical and part fictional and in some measure mad Hitler Herter argues is pure negativity a black hole the euivalent to the number zero which in the act of multiplication destroys all other numbers It is ultimately as futile to find some past event that made Hitler the horror he was as it is to find an euivalent event that made God The negative god Hitler was engendered Herter argues in a frenzied monologue from the lineage of Schopenauer Wagner and Nietschze the latter going mad from syphilis in 1888 at precisely the time Hitler was born a sort of ugly but eually mysterious immaculate conception There is a good bit of craziness here and a great bit of imagination but it makes for fascinating reading Mulisch can't seem to miss

    I was about to give this four stars because the idea behind it and the explanations about the non personality of Hitler were really really interesting and I could even follow all of the philosophy thanks to my classes But the ending was very predictable and made me realize that I didn't care for the main character at all Also and I have this feeling a lot when I read Dutch literature the dialogue seems really forced and unnatural when it's not meant to be like that

    awful mulisch seems to have no skill at all nor sensibility his protagonist is a clone of himself not to explore himself but rather to praise himself by comparing himself with mann a sin for which hell rot in hell his prose seems to have no cadence or consideration to it farted out by a dozen drafts to make it publishable his overarching themes involve pseudo intellectually blank attempts to try and make some point on aesthetic theory but he clearly knows nothing about it and his points are as vapid as can be this is a godawful book dont read it this is the best the dutch have to offer?

    Although the story is a very good read I did not very much appreciate the book I feel Hitler as a person is characterised as so much than he was He is described as the absolute nothingness and by doing so Harry Mulisch creates the feeling that Hitler was the only one responsible for the war Thus taking the blame off the many other responsible people Further it lacks some historical awareness and downplays other historical tragedies such as Nero's Christian persecution solely to make Hitler appear worse

    Ugh The author's doppelgänger purports to understand Hitler at last based on a heretofore unknown salacious and evil occurence Alrighty then Throw in some Nietzsche and Wagner and Eva Braun's diary and there you have itI thought this book was grossly exploitative and served no purpose Bumped up to two stars since it held my interest until the end with its unfortunate punchline

    Very few characters in history particularly that of the last century inspire the same sort of morbid fascination as Hitler Mulisch exploration of the character is as speculative as it is completely fascinating When a renown author decides to write a book on Hitler he discovers a secret of the past that upstages any flight of imagination he might have produced in that staggeringly audacious way that reality tends to upstage make belief Not one but two wild concepts in one book so much to think about All suppositions and theories of course but so clever so well researched so intelligent that one can't help but wonder what if The slightness of the book does nothing to betray the gravity of its context Exceptionally interesting read Highly recommended


  10. says:

    The alternate history story inside this story is very intriguing The premise Hitler and Eva Braun had a son And Mulisch makes this work without rewriting history It could've been this way However the story around that story the life and thoughts of main protagonist Herter an author with autobiographical traits? discovering these shocking news didn't really get me Except for the ending which was shocking but also very weird
