Gestern Morgen. Über die Einsamkeit kommunistischer Gespenster und die Rekonstruktion der Zukunft. (Yesterday Morning. On the communist spectres’ lonelyness and the reconstruction of future.) Unrast Verlag. Münster, 2007
Bini Adamczaks outstanding book is a serious attempt to criticise the Stalinist mode of communism in Soviet Russia from a perspective that is not anti-communist. The author starts out with the Hitler-Stalin-Pakt and follows anti-fascists and communists who became double victims of the Stalinist terror. It further digs into history until Lenins death in 1924 and even further discussing the events of Kronstadt in that sense, that Kronstadt was a proletarian, communist uprising against the Bolshevik party communism (to make a long story short). Through the revolutionary debris the author searches for another reincarnation of a communist desire, from a perspective that includes the Stalinist victims. Unfortunately it’s only available in German by now.
