Die größere Hoffnung

Ilse Aichinger

Publisher: S. Fischer Verlag

Austria
German
Fiction
1948

First published in 1948, Ilse Aichinger’s novel remains an unnerving read. The Greater Hope was one of the earliest works of literature to deal, from experience, with Nazi anti-Semitism and the Holocaust. It is a milestone in post-war literature for breaking the taboo of talking about the persecution of Jews by Germany. The novel tells the story of a young “half-Jewish” girl during the late years of the war.
