Winner of the 2014 NIN award, the most prestigious literary award in Serbia.

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.


Translated from the Serbian by Christina Pribićević-Zorić

‘While warning us of the consequences of the choice between what to remember and what to forget, David suggests a new dialogue between memory and forgetfulness, a need for a new language for understanding evil.’ – World Literature Today


FILIP DAVID (b. 1940, Kragujevac) is one of Serbia’s most prolific writers. Born to a Jewish family during the holocaust, his work in fiction, non-fiction, television and film often critically explores the nature of evil.
