Irčne Némirovsky: Die Familie Hardelot
(English title: All Our Worldly Goods)
Book Presentation with Denise Epstein and Judith Rosmair
The novel "Die Familie Hardelot" is the swan song for a fainthearted, self-satisfied middle class. The book came into being just before the successful novel "Suite française" in 1940. Irčne Némirovsky, born in Kiev in 1903 as daughter to a financier, became a star of the French literary scene. She was arrested in 1942 and murdered in Auschwitz. Her daughter, Denise Epstein, had refused to come to Germany up to now. She will present the novel with Judith Rosmair.
