After Auschwitz, a Love Story

August 20 @ 7:00 pm

| Free

Two of the 20th century’s terrible A’s collide in this powerful novel—Alzheimer’s Disease and the Auschwitz death camp. Set in Rome in 2010, Renzo, a once brilliant writer and filmmaker, is aware that he is slipping deeper and deeper into the haze of Alzheimer’s. He keeps a journal in which he grapples with his complicated marriage to Hannah, a death camp survivor, as well as with the predominant intellectual currents of the 20th century. Highly lyrical passages elucidate for the reader both his sophisticated anguish and his child-like wonder.
