More About This Title The House of Remembering and Forgetting


Young Albert Weiss was spared the horrors of Auschwitz when his parents threw him and his brother from the transport train. Years later, with the help of other survivors of the holocaust, he explores the myriad ways of confronting not just the evil that robbed him of his childhood, but the guilt he feels for having lost his brother on that wintry night. This literary patchwork of fiction and historical documents offers a compelling fictional response to the theories of Hannah Arendt.
