Abstract

Rabet oder das Verschwinden einer Himmelsrichtung by Martin Jankowski presents a fictional character, but the events in this novel are authentic. This novel describes the origin of the peaceful revolution (friedliche Revolution) in East Germany from 1987-1989. At that time East Germany was under authoritarian rule and could not improve the welfare of its people. This condition eventually led to resistance from groups of people who wanted change. According to James C Scott, there are two forms of resistance, namely open resistance and closed resistance. Open resistance is organic, systematic, group (cooperative), selfless, revolutionary, and negates the basis of domination. Meanwhile, closed resistance is irregular, unsystematic, individual, opportunist, without revolutionary consequences, and accepts a system of domination. In this novel, two forms of resistance exist. At the first time the resistance was closed resistance and carried out by several people without proper organization. However, in the end this resistance became an open resistance.
