Sie haben uns einen fremden Krieg zugeschrieben

70 Jahre nach Kriegsende setzt sich der große russische Autor Daniil Granin mit seiner „Schützengrabenwahrheit“ (1941-1944) auseinander und entwirft das vielstimmige, erschreckende und bisher unbekannte Bild eines Krieges, wie ihn weder russische noch deutsche Historiker beschreiben könnten.
Der Roman wurde 2012 mit dem Preis „Großes Buch“ ausgezeichnet.

„Unser Krieg warfare ungeschickt, unsinnig, aber das wurde nicht gezeigt und darüber wurde nicht geschrieben. Unser Krieg struggle ein anderer.“ Daniil Granin

„Ein guter Schriftsteller! Diese Leute sterben aus, die den Krieg mitgemacht haben. Wir sind die letzten.“ Helmut Schmidt


Sofort nach dem Überfall der deutschen Wehrmacht auf die Sowjetunion im Juli 1941 meldete sich Daniil Granin als Kriegsfreiwilliger. Unerfahren und unbewaffnet wurde er „in den Fleischwolf“ des Krieges geworfen. Aus der Perspektive des jungen Leutnants D. und aus heutiger Sicht hinterfragt Granin die Wahrheiten der Vergangenheit und der Gegenwart. Unbewältigte Kriegstraumata, unsinnige Menschenopfer und Verluste, die Opferung ganzer Armeen aus ideologischen Gründen, aber auch die tragische Heimkehr traumatisierter Kriegsveteranen, die mit ihren physischen und psychischen Schäden allein gelassen wurden, mit all diesen lange verschwiegenen Seiten des Krieges setzt sich Granin in diesem zutiefst beeindruckenden Roman auseinander.
