Trieste, Paperback Book



An old woman sits alone in Gorizia, north-eastern Italy.

She is waiting to be reunited with her son. He was fathered by an S.S. officer and stolen from her sixty-two years before by the Nazi authorities during the German occupation.

By focusing on the experiences of one individual, Drndic engages head-on with the traumatic history of WWII and the Holocaust and deals unsparingly with the massacre of Jews in Trieste's concentration camp.

A literary collage comprising photographs, scraps of poetry, interviews and testimonies from the Nuremburg Trials, it is a formally daring work of immense power and scope.
