Download Der Wille zur Freiheit: Eine gefährliche Reise durch by Egon Balas (auth.) PDF

By Egon Balas (auth.)

Wieviele Schritte muss ein Mensch gehen und wie gefährlich sind seine Wege, wieviel Leid erträgt ein Mensch und woher nimmt er die Kraft, um die einzige Bahn zu beschreiten, die für ihn wichtig ist: die zur Freiheit ohne Verlust seiner Rechtschaffenheit? Egon Balas erzählt in dieser ungemein fesselnd geschriebenen Autobiographie von den Wegen, die ihn aus Transsilvanien nach Pennsylvania führten, auf denen der 1922 in Klausenburg (Kolozsvár – ung., Cluj – rum.) geborene Sohn einer ungarisch-jüdischen Familie zum berühmten Mathematiker wurde, der seit 1966 in den united states lebt. Die Leser des Buches werden auf eine erstaunliche Lebensreise mitgenommen, sie erfahren von großem Mut und grenzenlosem Optimismus.

Balas erlebte als Heranwachsender den Zusammenbruch der alten, vermeintlich sicheren Ordnung, schloss sich 1942 der Kommunistischen Partei Ungarns an, kämpfte im Untergrund gegen den Faschismus, wurde eingesperrt, gefoltert und konnte schließlich in den Kriegswirren fliehen. Mit seiner Geschichte gibt der Autor auch einen Einblick in die Tragödie der Siebenbürger Juden, deren Mehrzahl in den Jahren 1942-1944 ermordet wurde. Von den dreißig Mitgliedern der Balas-Familie überlebten nur sieben. Egon Balas’ spätere Frau Edith gehörte zu den wenigen, die aus Auschwitz zurückkehrten.

Nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg hatte Balas infolge seines Widerstandes wichtige Funktionen im kommunistischen Rumänien inne. Er geriet zunehmend in Widerspruch zum stalinistischen Regime, saß als politischer Häftling mehr als zwei Jahre in Einzelhaft bei der rumänischen Staatssicherheit Securitate und kam erst nach Stalins Tod wieder frei.

Wir erfahren in diesem spannenden Buch von den vielen überraschenden und unerwarteten Wendungen, die das ständige Auf und Ab eines aufregenden Lebens begleiten. Das Buch ist ein Tatsachenbericht, der sich wie ein Roman liest. Dabei wird der Leser auch in skurrile, in groteske Situationen einbezogen, die – nach beklemmenden Schilderungen – befreiend wirken.
