Comrade Huppert free pdf After discovering the autobiography of the Austrian communist and writer Hugo Huppert (1902 1982), historian George Huppert became absorbed in the life and work of this man, a Jew, perhaps a relative, who was born a few months after George s father and grew up just miles away. Hugo seemed to embody a distinctly central European experience of his time, of people trapped between Hitler and Stalin. Using the unvarnished account found in Hugo s notebooks, George Huppert takes the reader on a tour of the writer s life from his provincial youth to his education and radicalization in Vienna- to Moscow where he meets Mayakovski and where he is imprisoned during Stalin s purges- through the difficult war years and return to Vienna- to his further struggles with the communist party and his blossoming as a writer in the 1950s. Through all the twists and turns of this story, George remains a faithful presence, guiding the way and placing Hugo s remarkable life in context. Comrade Huppert is a story of displacement and exile, the price of party loyalty, and the toll of war and terror on the mind of this emblematic figure."
