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 thatrobbed him of his childhood, but the guilt he feels for having lost his brother on that wintry night. The House of Remembering and Forgetting is Filip David's intelligent literary patchwork of fiction and historical documentation which offers a compelling response to the theories of Hannah Arendt.
FILIP DAVID (b. 1940, Belgrade) is one of Serbia's most prolific writers. Born to a Jewish family during the holocaust, his work in fiction, non-fiction and television often critically explores the nature of evil.
