Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1, Martin Luther University, language: English, abstract: Introduction 'He writes like he talks and talks like he writes' Although the cruelties people of Europe had to suffer from during the early decades of the 20th century, when Adolf Hitler began to establish his Nazi-regime, are part of a sad and dark chapter in German history, the aftermaths of the Rassengesetze, the war itself and the concentration camps are still shaking the minds of those who are faced with this issue during their studies, as well as the memories and lives of the people which either had to live according to the ideologies of the Third Reich and experience the tortures and pain the Nazis had brought upon them, or belong to the younger generation of those people's descendants.

The last chapter will lay the focus on Rosenbaum's language and style as well as the purpose of writing his novel. This work is written in American English. [...]
