Sometimes the backstory of an author adds to the legend of a great work of literature Ulysses S Grant wrote what many consider to be the greatest American autobiography after he learned he would die of cancer to provide for his family after he had lost all his money Harper Lee wrote a seminal work of American fiction and decided to never write another book JD Salinger wrote the book that is a rite of passage for virtually every American high school or college student only to live in cryptic isolation John Kennedy Toole committed suicide before his novel was recognized at one of the great comic classics ever written And even rarely it s the lack of information about an author that intrigues as is the case with Ernst HaffnerVirtually nothing is known about Haffner there are no existing records about how he lived or died He was a social worker all traces of him disappeared in 1938 when he was summoned to one of Joseph Goebbels departments which was responsible for the printed word in Nazi Germany His only novel Jugend auf der Landstra e Berlin Youth on the streets of Berlin was published in 1932 and was one of the books burned by the Nazis on May 10 1933 Few of the 5000 copies of the book that were printed survived World War II Even fewer people remembered that it existeduntil 2015 when Aufbau Verlag the publishing house of communist East Germany that has been resurrected into one of the most respected imprints in Germany today published it with the title Blutsbr der Blood Brothers And what a wonderful book it isThe story revolves around a long forgotten episode of late Weimar depression era Berlin the lives of young people with no homes or families who lived on the fringes of society Most of the story revolves around two young men Ludwig and Willi who despite their ages of 19 and 20 are still considered boys At the time boys who were not dependents lived in prison like juvenile institutions Ludwig is a member of a gang the Blood Brothers or in the parlance of that time a cliue which acted as of a social support network who had escaped a juvenile institution two years earlier Willi escaped one four months earlier jumping on a freight train he thought would take him to Berlin but was instead bound for Cologne His adventurous ride on the axle of passenger train from Cologne to the outskirts of Berlin reveals everything one needs to know about his character Ludwig is duped into taking a rap for a crime with which he had nothing to do Before he is saved by his brothers Haffner teaches us a great deal about Weimar criminal justiceTheir adventures touch on many aspects of the Berlin lower classes gangs prostitution petty crimes the constant nearness of violence poverty and coping to survive There are characters who are reprehensible cynical conniving and oddly friendly But the true joy of the story is the inextinguishable optimism that keeps Ludwig and Willi going and eventually develops into the best of friendships Blutsbr der is one of those rare stories that burrows into your memory hopefully for a very long time It underscores the tragedy and mystery of what Ernst Haffner may still have offered the world As I reflected on the characters it occurred to me that Ludwig and Willi and the other blood brothers would likely have been fighting a war six years after the events of this story How might have Haffner written their stories My bet is that he would have humanized them We can only speculate
