STRUWWELPETER by Dr. Heinrich Hoffmann = my first book ever, my first possession. I never owned a house, a boat, a horse – but some books. Recently I was surprised discovering my very first comments written in this book – I was aged 5. My favorite philosopher Theodor W. Adorno wrote in his “Minima Moralia“: “In his text, the writer sets up house… For a man who no longer has a homeland writing becomes a place to live…”
my comments:
2 – The_Story_of_the_Inky_Boys: “BÖSE” = EVIL (racism!)
3 – Augustus, who would not have any Soup: “Suppenkasper”
4 – Harriet and the Matches: “DUMM” = silly
5 – Little Suck-a-Thumb: “DAUMELUSCHER” (Daumenlutscher)
6 – Cruel Frederick: “SO KEHT DAS!” = that’s the way it goes (P.S.: isn’t it like the first step into philosophy?)
