Summary (via Google Translate): Fakir Mohan Sen is the most famous comic actor of the theater of India, however nobody knows his true story, lived in solitude and weighed down by a wound that never healed. Because, as Charlie Chaplin said, a comedian is a sad person. Every smile of Fakir Mohan Sen was born of his effort to silence the darkness. However, thanks to their performances, the public learned to dream and to make the imagination fly, to laugh at their frustrations and their fears.

Suche Arbeit Für Papa (Job Hunt For Papa) by Lydia Zeller and Illustrated by Monica Maslowska
Published 2008 by Bajazzo Verlag
ISBN13: 9783907588901

Summary: Since Oskar’s father is unemployed, he sits in front of the TV all day, drinking beer and complaining about everything. He has lost his job as a car painter and has given up looking for a new one. One day, Oskar has an idea: In the courtyard he hangs a note on a tree on which he has written “Search work for dad” and drawn a Porsche. At first the father reacts angrily. But when the neighbor calls the same evening and asks if he can help him with his car, the father brings out his toolbox. The mother and Oskar’s big sister Lola are relieved. And Daddy decides the next morning to make a course in which he can learn all about engines. This story does not hide the fact that the unemployment of a family member also touches children and partners. But it shows that the family can help those affected to take their fate into their own hands.
