The first English translation by one of Hungary's greatest modern
writers is a powerful and haunting novel set in the modern day and
during the Holocaust An elderly Jewish man strolls along the Danube
Promenade in 2002. When a cyclist almost knocks him down he is
transported back to a similar incident, when the cyclists were the
armband-wearing Arrow-Cross-men, or Hungarian Nazis--all as he is
just about to participate in an event to mark the memory of a man
who fought them. We now enter the story of this man as a
14-year-old with his young friend Vera, two of thousands of Jews
who owe their lives to the legendary Carl Lutz, Budapest's Swiss
Vice-Consul, an enigmatic hero in the Schindler mold. This
unforgettable story, based on true events, takes place on three
levels and in two eras: telling the thrilling story of the two
youngsters' evasion of the Nazis and the heroism of Carl Lutz in
wartime and, in the 21st century, the narrator's bittersweet
experience of how the past is repackaged as a product. Including a
tender love story, endless tales of daring, and even a chilling
encounter between Lutz and Adolf Eichmann, this is a Holocaust
story like no other, richly praised all over Europe.
