Enjoyable, but also heartwrenching and even heartbreaking, these straight-forward, brutally honest and unadorned memoirs of a Bavarian peasant woman (the title of which refers to a type of simple soup made with fermented whole milk) will likely quite cure many readers of nostalgia for the so-called good old days (farming life in rural Bavaria, especially in the early to mid 20th century, was often intensely difficult, backbreaking labour, and if like in Anna Wimschneider's family, the mother had ...more

Dieses Buch ist ein " Eintauchen" in längst vergangene Zeiten. Während ich Seite für Seite gelesen habe, hatte ich oftmals das Gefühl in diesem Bauernhaus in der "Kuchl" am Tisch zu sitzen und den Erinnerungen und Erzählungen zu lauschen.

Der Inhalt ist das, was er verspricht. Es gibt keine wirkliche Struktur - sondern ist so geschrieben wie auch meine eigene Großmutter von früher erzählt. Mal hier, mal dort eine Anekdote - kurz und prägnant, vollgepackt mit alten "Weiheiten" und Lebenseinstellun

Este lo leí hace como 11 años. Son los recuerdo de una campesina del sur de Alemania durente los últimos años de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Esta señora era analfabeta. No había ido a la escuela y no estaba muy segura de lo que había pasado en la guerra. No le tocó directamente sufrir los embates de la misma. Más bien le tocaron las consecuencias. Tuvo que alojar en su granja a refugiados y desplazados de la guerra y darles de comer. Aunque no estaba muy contenta porque sentía que la gente no lo ...more

Yea! I didn't think this book would be on here because it's in German. I've looked for a translated version and couldn't find one. If you find one, read it! This is a very simple tale of a girl growing up in Germany during WWII. I liked this book because it was a real picture of what life on the homefront was like in Germany for ordinary citizens. It' not a tale about daring adventures, but a tale about bravery still the same.
P.S. If you can't find the book, there's a movie, with subtitles. Find

Letto d'un soffio in un giorno! Storia della vita di una contadina bavarese a cavallo della seconda guerra mondiale. Una biografia aspra come la vita vissuta dalla protagonista, sottoposta ai tanti sacrifici della esistenza contadina di un tempo, aggravata da privazioni già dalla tenera infanzia e caratterizzata dal duro lavoro e dalle difficoltà di una vita di solitudine, dove l'allontanamento del marito a causa della guerra, la gelosia di una suocera cattiva e l'impossibilità di prendersi cura ...more

This book was such a mess, it was at times really hard to follow because of the narration constantly jumping from one time to another. There was no structure but that made it seem like an old lady was telling her life story orally. I learnt a few things about her life as a farmer back then.
