A beautiful and elegant account of an ordinary man’s unexpected and reluctant descent into heroism during the Second World War. 1942, Paris. Architect Lucien Bernard accepts a commission that will bring him huge wealth – and maybe a death sentence. He has to design a secret hiding place for a wealthy Jewish man, a space so invisible that even the most determined of Nazi soldiers won’t discover it. When one of Lucien’s designs fails horribly, the problem of hiding a Jew becomes person, and he can no longer deny the enormity of his project.
Charles Belfoure, geb. 1954, ist ein amerikanischer Architekt, Autor und Historiker. Und natürlich haben seine Romane eine architektonischen Hintergrund! “The main character goes through his own changes in accepting requests for help from those hiding Jews. As an architect he evolves into a source of creative and effective hiding places in Paris apartments and country homes. The tension builds, the Gestapo in Paris close in on him – and help comes from a surprising source.” (Leser) (2.026 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 383 Seiten noch günstig?
