Start your review of Badenheim An absurdist, surreal story about a group of jewish tourists in an Austrian resort in the fictional village of Badenheim, in the year Slowly, the idyllic resort transforms into a sealed ghetto. The guests are ignorant and in denial of the tragedy that is about to befall them, and fantasize about emigrating to Poland where a better future awaits them. As I'm writing this, I realize what a strong premise this is.

How can anyone foresee such an apocalyptic fate? Unfortunately, I didn't think An absurdist, surreal story about a group of jewish tourists in an Austrian resort in the fictional village of Badenheim, in the year Unfortunately, I didn't think it was well executed, and I really struggled to get through this short book. The characters were eccentric and uninteresting ; the writing was erratic and choppy ; there was neither flow nor emotion in the storytelling.

A masterpiece to some, a huge disappointment for me. Only the ending of the book affected me. View all 9 comments. An engrossing novella translated from the Hebrew. The Shoah begins in a parallel universe. The resort town of Badenheim is undergoing a quarantine.

All the Jews must register with the Sanitation Department. Mail service is stopped; all phones disconnected. The performing artists Dr. Then word gets out that everyone will be resettled in Poland. The locals and visitors—all Jews—go through phases of do An engrossing novella translated from the Hebrew.

The locals and visitors—all Jews—go through phases of doubt and optimism, resignation and acceptance. Some residents, a few, are upset at being labeled Jews.

Surely the Sanitation Department must mean the Ostjuden , not them. The curse of the town had pursued them all these years and now it had finally caught up with them. They wandered about in the paralyzed void of the town like lost souls. I know them well.

To get up in the morning and go to synagogue. Is that bad? Is it a sin to pray? In Poland people treat each other with respect. Merits re-reading, high praise in my book.

La lettura della prima pagina mi ha irritata: frasi cortissime, periodi semplici: soggetto, predicato verbale, punto.

Una sensazione di interruzione continua. Una storia Il mio ricordo di lettura di Aharon Appelfeld , scomparso ieri. Una storia semplice, ma mai chiara, come avvolta dalla foschia, da un velo che spostandosi, o dissolvendosi lentamente, permette di scoprire oggetti e persone che ci circondano solo quando li urtiamo.

A Japanese proverb states that 'The nail that sticks out gets hammered down'. Now, let's play the perspective game, imbuing some life into the nails and into the hammer.

The nails sticking out, whether deliberately or not, the hammer coming down, steady, inevitable, fast or slow, the impact is in the wings and it won't be softened or lessened, it can't, these things don't factor in.

Now, what to make of it? What, if anything, can be done? With that salvo fired, let me say that this book is a bit A Japanese proverb states that 'The nail that sticks out gets hammered down'.

With that salvo fired, let me say that this book is a bit of an anomaly. But then, so is the author. Aharon Appelfeld is an Israeli author who was born outside of the country in the town of Sadhora which is now a sub-district of another town in Ukraine. Appelfeld writes in Hebrew which, to him, is a language he only started to learn when he was 15 after having escaped the collapsing horror that was much of Europe for Jews.

What sets Appelfeld apart from his colleagues is what he chooses to write about. Now, there's a joke here. Yair, you're reading a book by an Israeli-Jewish author about Jews in a town near Vienna, Austria in the year A farce?

A summer romance? Maybe a spot of joy? Of course not. This book is fecund, but mostly fetid. It's a book of rotting and decay and delusions about excess and decadence and how these things can, somehow, stave off the inevitable. They can't.
