In 1942, at the age of eleven, she was deported to the Nazi 'family camp' Theresienstadt with her mother. "Landscape Of Memory" is the story of Ruth's life. Of a childhood spent in the Nazi camps and her refusal to forget the past as an adult in America. 'It is not in our power to forgive: memory does that for us,' says Kluger. Not erasing a single detail, not even the inconvenient ones, she writes frankly about the troubled relationship with her mother even through their years of internment, and of her determination not to forgive and absolve the past. It is this memory, pure and harsh, that makes Kluger's memoir so unforgettable.. Trade Paperback. Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., Bloomsbury, 2004, New York. 1990. Farrar Straus Giroux. 2nd Printing. Very Good In Dustjacket. Translated from the Czech by Rita Klimova & Roslyn Schloss. Preface by Philip Roth. 208 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Jacqueline Schuman. 0374187371. keywords: Literature Translated Czech Eastern Europe Jewish. inventory # 32284. FROM THE PUBLISHER - With disarming simplicity, Lift with a Star records the day-to-day life of one Josef Roubicek, an ex-bank clerk, during the Nazi occupation of Prague. Roubicek discovers that the prosaic world he has always inhabited is suddenly off limits to him because he is a Jew. An outsider even among those who share his fate, Roubicek observes with resigned detachment his new, increasingly skewed and macabre environment, His life becomes centered on survival, and on the surprisingly small things he clings to in order to preserve a human perspective. LIFE WITH A STAR is an astonishing work of fiction, which has influenced such Eastern European writers as Milan Kundera, Danilo Kis, and Jiri Grusa but which remains unknown in the United States, It was Philip Roth who championed the project of publishing the book in English. In his original letter to Farrar, Straus and Giroux recommending the novel, Roth wrote: ‘I first heard of LIFE WITH A STAR in Prague in the early seventies, when I met the widow of the writer Jill Weil. Weil hid from the Nazis during the war-most of the time, as I understand it, in the bathroom of the house of Vera Saudkova, Kafka’s niece. The book is, without a doubt, one of the outstanding novels I’ve read about the fate of a Jew under the Nazis. I don’t know of another like it.’. JIRI WElL was one of the best-known writers in Central Europe in the 1930s and in the immediate postwar years. In his youth a militant Communist, Weil was later expelled from the party after having served in Moscow as a member of the Czech section of the Comintern. Weil’s forced retreat from politics led him to concentrate on his work as a writer, and when the war broke out he was already highly influential in literary circles, In 1942, he was summoned for transport to a concentration camp with the rest of Prague Jewry, but managed to escape and to hide for the duration of the war. He was fifty-nine when he died of cancer in Prague in 1959. . ISBN: 0374187371.
