Jurek Becker erzählt ohne Pathos und ohne Sentimentalität Er zeigt nicht etwa den Widerstand den heroischen Kampf sondern den Alltag in einer Wel. Fairy tale as hopeSet in a Polish ghetto under Nazi occupation Jacob Heym is walking one night when a guard playing mind games with him tells him he is out past curfew and to report to the police station where Jews have been seen entering but never leaving to turn himself in and ask for his 'well deserved' punishment While in there with his heart in his throat Jacob hears news of a battle between German and Russian forces relatively close He is released as it was well before curfew but while working the next day with Misha a young strong blue eyed Jew Jacob tells him that the Russians are winning and are on their way to saving them from the Nazis When Misha gently disbelieves him Jacob is seized by a thought he knows this because he has a hidden radio which is forbidden to Jews He swears Misha to secrecy but you know where this is going to paraphrase Benjamin Franklin two people can keep a secret if one of them is dead In an effort to give hope to his fiance's family he tells One thing leads to another and the entire ghetto looks upon Jacob as a savior and follow him with their eyes and themselves begging for updates on their 'imminent' rescue Jacob is forced to construct battles and updates Even the 8 year old orphan Lena whom he took in when her parents were deported hears of it She demands to see the radio Jacob refuses to show it to her but hides behind a wall and pretends to BE the radio A relatively skilled impersonator he pretends he's a radio personality telling a fairy tale of a sick princess who is made well when a cloud she demands is brought to her The cloud is a piece of cotton but since she believes that is what clouds are made of she rises from her sickbed Is that not what Jacob's lie is doing for the people of the ghetto Suicides which were prevalent have plummeted to zero Jacob however buckling under the pressure eventually breaks and confesses to a friend who has been haunting him for updates that his tale was false The friend smiles and tells him he is not angry with him The next day Jacob discovers that he has hung himself Does Jacob keep the tale going The author a Holocaust survivor himself gives three different endings to the story One he says is true
