Joseph Roth's novel "Job" is a tale of life in the Jewish shtetl, the traditional village. Published in 1930, it came across as a swan song to the Jews of Eastern Europe.
In Joseph Roth's novel about Job, no terrible twist of fate is left out: delirium, illness, the loss of a homeland. How can the almighty allow these hardships? The loyalty of one Jewish believer is put to a trying test.
A picturesque novel — like a film, like a song. It's the first German urban novel. And a story of a man who is constantly landing flat on his face — until, one day, he finally gets it.
German troops murdered more than 30,000 Jews near Kyiv in Ukraine in 1941. Eight elderly men suspected of assisting those units have yet to face any charges in court, according to German public broadcaster ARD.
