IBNA- A 1947 novel by German author Hans Fallada, 'Every Man Dies Alone' (German: ‎‎(Jeder ‎stirbt für sich allein) which portrays German resistance to the Nazis has been ‎translated into Persian ‎and published.‎
This suspenseful, disturbing novel, written in 24 days by Hans Fallada who died in 1947 has been translated into Persian by Mohammad Hemmati. Farhang-e Nashr-e No has released 'Every Man Dies Alone' in 615 pages.
This masterpiece which is based on a true story was overlooked for years after its author—a bestselling writer before World War II who found himself in a Nazi insane asylum at war’s end—died just before it was published.
In a richly detailed portrait of life in Berlin under the Nazis, it tells the sweeping saga of one working-class couple who decides to take a stand when their only son is killed at the front.
With nothing but their grief and each other against the awesome power of the Third Reich, Otto and Anna Quangel launch a simple, clandestine resistance campaign that soon has an enraged Gestapo on their trail, and a world of terrified neighbors and cynical snitches ready to turn them in.
In the end, ‘Every Man Dies Alone’ is more than an edge-of-your-seat thriller, more than a moving romance, even more than literature of the highest order—it’s a deeply stirring story of two people standing up for what’s right, and for each other.
This edition includes an afterword detailing the gripping history of the book and its author, including excerpts from the Gestapo file on the real-life couple that inspired it.
One of Fallada’s better known novels is ‘Little Man, What Now?’ (1932). His works belong predominantly to the New Objectivity literary style, a style associated with an emotionless reportage approach, with precision of detail, and a veneration for 'the fact'.
