Item description for A paso de cangrejo by Gunter Grass, Miguel Saenz & Grita Loebsack...

Tulla, a survivor of the sinking of a German ship in 1945 by a Russian submarine, gives birth to a boy, Paul, only a few minutes after being rescued. When the child grows up he leaves Eastern Germany and moves to Western Germany to study journalism. Instead of using his journalistic insight to shed light on ongoing events, Paul becomes a mediocre journalist, but through his passion for computer science, he begins to unravel the truth about Germany and the obstacles it went through.

Description in Spanish:

A travs de tres generaciones de una misma familia, participamos en la investigacin de un hecho de la Segunda Guerra Mundial: el hundimiento del buque Wilhelm Gustloff en 1945 por un submarino ruso. En la accin murieron un gran nmero de mujeres y nios que huan del avance sovitico. Ninguno de los dos bandos dio publicidad al hecho: los alemanes para no minar la moral de la poblacin y los rusos para no difundir el asesinato de tantas vctimas civiles.

Una de las supervivientes, Tulla, da a luz a un nio a los pocos minutos de ser rescatada. Tiempo ms tarde, este nio crecer para dejar la Alemania oriental y pasar al oeste a estudiar Periodismo. Lejos de dedicar su vocacin a esclarecer para siempre el acontecimiento, Paul se convertir en un periodista mediocre y sin compromisos. Ser su hijo Konrad, un muchacho solitario apasionado por la informtica, quien comience a destapar la verdad?

La voz de Gnter Grass vuelve a resonar en las conciencias de los europeos para recordarnos que el nazismo es una realidad capaz de resurgir. Una novela apasionante que es tambin un fino anlisis de la realidad y otra llamada de alerta de uno de los grandes intelectuales de nuestro tiempo.
