About this book

Language: German

On emergency, suffering, and the art of survival: When, 200 years ago in Indonesia, the volcano Tambora erupted, a terrible "year without a summer" followed in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. And which German native does not remember the Christmas holidays of 1999, as Hurricane Lothar swept across southern Germany and leveled huge forest areas in the Black Forest? Today, such natural disasters are evidence of global climate change – earlier they were considered sure signs of impending doomsday or even evil sorcery.

From prehistoric times until today Thomas Adam tells the story of the natural disasters in Baden-Württemberg. He tells of the fear and the suffering of the people, but also of their courage and strength, to rise anews, to reconstruct what has been destroyed, and to learn how to better brace oneself against future threats. A knowledgeable, lively and authentic historical account of an astonishing timeliness.

Summary in German:
Von Not, Leid und der Kunst zu überleben: Als vor 200 Jahren in Indonesien der Vulkan Tambora ausbrach, folgte in Baden und Württemberg ein furchtbares »Jahr ohne Sommer«. Und wer erinnert sich hierzulande nicht an die Weihnachtstage des Jahres 1999, als der Orkan Lothar über Süddeutschland fegte und riesige Forstflächen im Schwarzwald dem Erdboden gleich machte? Heute zeugen solche Naturkatastrophen vom weltweiten Klimawandel - früher galten sie als sichere Zeichen des bevorstehenden Weltuntergangs oder gar als bösartige Zauberei.

Von der Vorzeit bis heute erzählt Thomas Adam die Geschichte der Naturkatastrophen in Baden-Württemberg. Er berichtet von der Angst und vom Leiden der Menschen, aber auch von ihrem Mut und ihrer Kraft, sich stets aufs Neue aufzuraffen, Zerstörtes wieder aufzubauen und zu lernen, wie man sich besser vor künftigen Bedrohungen wappnet. Ein kenntnisreicher, lebendiger und authentischer historischer Bericht von frappierender Aktualität.
