Society is rebuilt following a nuclear war. This novel, retitled DIE ERBEN DES UNTERGANGS in 1959, "represents in many ways Graf's most personally revealing confessional and hence in an unconventional sense most tellingly 'autobiographical' novel ... [Here Graf] confronts the reader ... more directly [than in his more traditional autobiographical novels] with his philosophical, political, ethical, and religious ideas and ideals than in any previous work." - Robert C. Davis, "The Politics of Utopia: The Genesis of Oskar Maria Graf's 'Die Erben des Untergangs,'" German Studies Review 13 (February 1990), p. 27. Negley, Utopian Literature 451. Bloch (2002) 1249.
