A Stranger in My Own Country : The 1944 Prison Diary eBook
A Stranger in my Own Country is his memoirs covering the period from shortly after the Nazis ascent to power to his period of incarceration in a psychiatric hospital in This is an absolute fascinating read, on a historical level, on a literary level, on a personal level and on a political level. This book is written by author Hans Fallada. I lived the same life as everyone else, the life of ordinary people, the masses. Sitting in a prison cell in the autumn of , the German author Hans Fallada sums up his life under the National Socialist dictatorship, the time ofinward emigration.
For the Pakistan in which General Khadim Raja found himself a stranger no longer exists. Its pretensions were ended on 16 December , when Governor Niazi signed the surrender documents proclaiming a new country, Bangladesh, out of the debris of the illconceived Pakistan artificially created a quarter century earlier as a homeland for the Muslims of the sub-continent, to quote General Raja in his final peroration, which it never was and could not have become. Raja was witness to the last days of the Quaids Raj, a witness who had intimations of the coming catastrophe but was swept along to be part of the disaster by his duties as Deputy Martial Law Administrator in East Pakistan and commanding officer of the Division occupying Dhaka. His account, by no means in the league of Herb Feldmans The End and the Beginning or even Rajas contemporary, Brigadier Abdur Rahman Siddiqis Pakistan: The End Game, An Onlookers Journal, , is valuable as a worms eye view of how Islamabads self-inflicted wounds turned gangrenous, leaving the limb with no alternative but to be cut off. Raja arrived in Khulna towards the last quarter of to find himself in an environment so strikingly unfriendly that I felt like a stranger in my own country, and totally unwelcome as a West Pakistani.
