De dictatuur van het geld, de behandeling van immigranten in Europa, de situatie in Gaza. Het zijn een paar van de thema's waarover de 93-jarige filosoof Stéphane Hessel in dit opzienbarende pamflet zijn zorgen uitspreekt.
Wie is Stéphane Hessel? Hij werd in 1917 in Berlijn geboren en vluchtte op 15-jarige leeftijd met zijn ouders naar Frankrijk, waar hij filosofie ging stu

Facusem o comanda de carti acum ceva timp si iata ca primisem cadou din partea editurii Nemira, ca un client fidel, o cartulie intitulata "Indignati-va!". Initial am pus-o deoparte, crezand ca e un manifest de propaganda(avand in vedere dimensiunile ei nu foarte voluminoase). Ma trezisem in dimineata asta si am gasit cartea asta undeva pe dupa noptiera... O deschid, citesc "Cuvant inainte" de Vladimir Nicolau, un cuvant care m-a impresionat pana la culme deoarece s-a pliat exact pe modul meu de ...more

In this very slim book (which I read in a few hours) the author and diplomat, M. Hessel (a veteran of the French Resistance who survived torture at the hands of the Gestapo, Buchenwald concentration camp, and forced labor in a Nazi prison) speaks of the need for the citizen to be enraged at the prevailing inequities and injustices in today’s world and find a constructive means of striving to reaffirm the values his generation had enshrined in the UN Declaration of Human Rights and help build a b ...more

Stéphane Hessel lived for nearly a century and almost everything he achieved in that time was extraordinary. He fought in the French Resistance; he was captured by the Nazis, sent to Buchenwald, waterboarded; he was in the room as they drafted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Not the least of his achievements was Indignez-vous!.

Who would have believed that a 30-page political pamphlet written by a nonagenarian diplomat would be translated into 15 languages, and spark protest movements

Parece mentira. Un anciano de 93 años que encamina a la juventud de nuestros días mediante un llamamiento a la revolución. Eso sí: la revolución de la no-violencia, como él dice. Stéphane Hessel, veterano de la Resistencia francesa y miembro redactor de la Declaración Universal de los Derechos Humanos de 1948, ha sido protagonista del último éxito editorial en Francia. Bajo el llamativo título de Indignaos ('Indignez-vous'), su panfleto, de treinta y

Empört Euch! ist ein 15seitiger Aufruf gegen die Gleichgültigkeit, die in weiten Teilen unserer Gesellschaft grassiert. Der Autor, der sich zeit seines 93jährigen Lebens empört hat und auch Widerstand leistete, vermisst dies heute und fordert mit seiner kurzen Streitschrift seine MitbürgerInnen auf, sich auch heute zu entrüsten und einzusetzen ("Wenn man sich über etwas empört,..., wird man aktiv, stark und engagiert.").

J'ai fini par trouver 10 minutes pour lire "Indignez-vous" de Stéphane Hessel. Il n'en faut guère plus pour venir à bout de ce court pamphlet, bricolé à partir du texte du discours prononcé en mai 2009 devant un auditoire clairsemé sur le plateau des Glières par un diplomate retraité inconnu du grand public.
Comment ce texte est-il devenu un phénomène d'édition, devançant au hit-parade des meilleures ventes Marc Lévy et Guillaume Musso ?

An den Qualitäten des Autors lässt sich nicht rütteln, Hessel ist definitiv ein großer Denker und Mann von Format. Dennoch war ich von dieser Streitschrift etwas enttäuscht. Vielleicht hatte ich mir von dem schmalen Büchlein einfach zu viel erwartet: eine Streitschrift gegen den Finanzkapitalismus, eindringliche Worte gegen die Ungerechtigkeiten unserer Gesellschaft, eine versierte Analyse der Probleme unserer Zeit - das alles hatte ich mir erhofft.

Hessel fordert die heutige Jugend (oder gar Weltbevölkerung) dazu auf, sich zu empören und unsere Fähigkeit zur Empörung nicht zu verdrängen. Auch wenn die Gründe für ein solches Empören in der Jetztzeit vielleicht schwieriger zu finden sind als damals bei Hessel, appelliert er drängend: "Ich wünsche allen, jedem Einzelnen von euch einen Grund zur Empörung. Das ist kostbar. Wenn man sich über etwas empört, wie mich der Naziwahn empört hat, wird man aktiv, stark und engagiert. Man verbindet sich ...more

Krieg ist, wenn alte Männer reden
Einen Krieg will Stéphane Hessel sicher nicht lostreten mit seinem Essay, doch aufrütteln schon. Er, der alles erlebt hat, was ein Mensch erleben kann, wendet sich im gesegneten Alter von 93 Jahren an die heutige Gesellschaft, und insbesondere an die Jugend. Haben wir, dick gepolstert von Konsum und abgestumpft durch Medien, den Trieb zur Empörung gegen offensichtliche Falschentwicklungen verloren? Wir nehmen vieles hin, gegen das frühere Generationen auf die Str

C'est la curiosité qui m'a conduit vers ce petit feuillet de Stéphane Hessel, le bouche-à-oreille ayant largement fait son travail. Et on ne peut faire plus efficace : l'auteur nous prend véritablement à partie en nous montrant à quel point la société actuelle regorge de sources d'indignation. Or le peuple s'est endormi, accepte toutes les injustices, les inégalités sans s'émouvoir plus que de raison. Le discours pourrait paraître naïf s'il n'émanait d'un vieil homme de 93 ans, grand Resistant, ...more

C'est amusant de voir la quantité de commentaires que ce petit essai a déclenché. Ca y est, on est tous indignés? Loin de là, même pour ceux (comme moi) qui ont pourtant envie de s'indigner! Impossible devant ce mini opuscule gentillet, consensuel, et finalement bien fade. Après avoir baillé pendant une lecture des pages d'introduction (oui, un texte de moins de 18 pages semble avoir besoin d'une intro, des notes, comme un vrai livre!) le texte assez vide de l'auteur est incapable d'enflammer qu ...more

A perfect jewel of false history, hatred and hypocritical, sloppy thinking.

It is the reader, not Mr Hessel, who should be outraged.

Given the distinguished biography and advanced age of the author, I wish I could find some glimmer of redeeming value in this hateful little pamphlet. But I cannot.

What a pitiful end to a long, courageous and at times brilliant career.

Let me state few things first

I have not given 4 stars for the exactness of the historic details given in this book. For, I am not adequately equipped with the knowledge of few events narrated in this booklet. Moreover, it is also not a thoroughly researched work. It is just a booklet that stimulates the young mind to 'outrage.' In creating the mood for outrage, this booklet has succeeded. My stars depend on this persuasive/emotive aspect of the booklet.

No logro encontrar para este libro otro calificativo que el de basura, ya que no es más una recopilación de toda esa demagogia barata y facilona a la que se nos tiene acostumbrados, rezumante de odio, hipocresía y autocomplacencia. Un insulto a la inteligencia del lector.

Das Essay hat in den letzten Monaten sehr viel Aufmerksamkeit bekommen und ist in Deutschland schnell in die Bestsellerlisten aufgerückt. Was ich angesichts der Oberflächlichkeit nicht nachvollziehen kann.

Clocking barely below 30 pages, "Indignez-vous!" is a short, impactful political pamphlet for the times. It reads like the words of an awe-inspiring grandfather, speaking gently to France's grandchildren of WW2 and compelling them to find reasons to rise up peacefully.

If I had read this work by itself two years ago, chances are I would have merely dismissed it as idealistic and incomplete. Sure, Hessel's life is a true inspiration, and his call to feel outrage at the way we treat the less fortun

Ne znam dovoljno o autoru, njegovom životu i delu, osim onoga što je na nekoliko mesta navedeno uz ovu knjižicu: da potiče iz bogate, privilegovane porodice, da je ubrzo nakon početka Drugog svetskog rata završio u Londonu, i da se tamo priključio francuskom pokretu otpora. U martu 1944. prelazi u Francusku da pomogne pripremu savezničkog iskrcavanja. Ubrzo ga zarobljavaju Nemci, muče i zatvaraju. Preživljava rat i nakon rata ima aktivnu ulogu u komisiji zaduženoj za izradu Univerzalne deklaraci ...more

Ovo je više brošura, nego knjiga, a Hessel kojemu je uspjelo pobjeći iz čak 3 konc logora pokušava objasniti zašto je otpor važan i zašto je ravnodušnost jedan od najgorih stavova. Za Hrvate nije primjenjivo gradivo jer mi seruckamo po društvenim mrežama a kada treba izaći na ulice, onda nam naglo svima postane dobro. Hessel je bio sekretar UNa i sudjelovao je u kreiranju Opće deklaracije o ljudskim pravima 1948. godine. Knjižicu bi valjalo pročitati čisto radi deklaracije koja je u njoj napisan ...more

This is a complicated review. I give it 4 stars because of the message but there are many works more specific and comprehensive than this.

It's a bestseller in France and has been cited for being influential in inspiring people involved in the Arab Spring revolutions. That's impressive considering it is very short at only 29 pages of actual work - there are additional notes and background on the author included as well. It also does not say anything that hasn't been said before or can't be found

Wow! What a powerful message. So simple, so clear. Leaders across the world could do with revisiting these ideas.

This is a passionate plea to all to have outrage and to not forget the importance of liberty, freedom, rights, to be safe, and to have a free press from a man, Stéphane Hessel, who was a freedom fighter in the Resistance organisation during the Second World War. He became a diplomat after the war and was involved in the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, a

No esperaba mucho por la longitd del libro, no conocía ni había oído nunca de Stéphane Hessel (lo sé, qué inculto) y creí que trataba de un tema completamente diferente porque no acostumbro leer las contraportadas completas.

This little book by Stephane Hessel who at 93 years old urges younger generations to be indignant is stupendous through that fact alone. I think it was probably even more rousing as a speech, but it still manages to make one feel the need to become indignant. Nowhere near as obvious as in this Romanian edition that includes an indignant invective in its foreword written by the book’s Romanian editor.

Apathy has always been one of humanity’s greatest sins and is most prevalent today in Western so
