About this Item

Large quarto. 70pp. (4). Photo-illustrated dust jacket over black cloth with white lettering on front cover and spine. Illustrated title page. Edited and introduction by Ruth Berlau. During his exile in Finland Brecht assembled the material for this work in the 1940s, photographs and articles from newspaper that he had collected and paired them with four line poems to form what he call Photo-epigrams. The Kriegsfibel documents and comments on the causes and the progress of WW II. Brecht thought of this work as an appeal to remember the crimes of the Nazis as well as the horrors of WW II and it attempts to invoke awareness among his contemporaries that a peaceful future is a responsibility that requires the participation of everybody. Ruth Berlau in her foreword explains: "This book teaches the art to read pictures." Just as the alphabet tries to teach reading with the help of illustrations, the Kriegsfibel informs about the causes and consequences of war (compare Hjördis Hornung in Medienpädagogik No. 14, 2011). Illustrated with striking b/w reproductions of photographs throughout. Remarks explaining the photographs at rear. Text in German. DJ with small chips and tears along edges and stain at top of spine. Binding with light sunning at foredge and bottom. Slightly starting at title page. DJ and binding in overall good+, interior in very good condition. Ruth Berlau, Danish actress, director, photographer and writer, who became Brecht's collaborator and lover within two years after Brecht's arrival on the island of Fyn in 1933. She founded the Brecht-Archiv in Berlin. Bookseller Inventory # 40735
