The Dark Room by Rachel Seiffert

The Dark Room

Rachel Seiffert

Could the Holocaust have happened in any country? What did (and indeed do)'ordinary' young Germans think about it? Find out at least some of the answers in this accomplished first novel as it describes the reactions of three very different young people to the events of the Second World War.

Extract

An old man stands under a desert sun and remembers school in a cold place. His family was German then, he says. Germans who were Jews, Jews who were German.
