Please help me spread information on good literature. In other words: please consider sharing a post that you like. Thank you! Hungary entered World War II in siding with Nazi Germany, but only in March German troops occupied the country and began with the deportation of the Jewish population to concentration camps.

The country remained under Soviet supremacy and control until For being of Jewish descent he was arrested and deported to Auschwitz at the age of fourteen and later moved on to Buchenwald. After his liberation from the concentration camp in he returned to Hungary, finished school and then worked for a newspaper, as an industrial worker and a ministerial officer until his obligatory two-year military service. Since the author lives mainly in Berlin, Germany. The Kaddish is the Jewish prayer for the dead.

The narrating protagonist writes his Kaddish for an Unborn Child or to be precise for a son or daughter who could have been, but never even was conceived because he always refused to bring children into a world in which the holocaust had been possible.

At the beginning stands the innocent question of a philosopher making conversation during a walk through the park of a rest-home in the Hungarian highlands. He wants to know whether the ageing narrator has children. What follows is a bitter look back at his failed marriage, at his career as a writer compelled to do translations for a living, at his ordeal in the concentration camps, at his relations with the autocratic father and his time in a boarding school, thus at his entire existence.

He also meditates on what relevance his Jewish heritage has in all this, especially for him who has no faith. He knows that in reality he has died long ago together with millions of others. Like many holocaust survivors he feels that he has no right to exist and that his purpose is to complete the task which the Nazi bloodhounds began in the concentration camps.

As a natural consequence he is unable to commit to anyone or anything with his entire self, be it his wife, his career, his dwelling — or a child. Kaddish for an Unborn Child is a thin book offering dense content with many philosophical insights. In fact, a thoughtful monologue interrupted only by some remembered dialogues fills the pages from beginning to end.

There are no chapters and only few paragraphs. Sentences are long and meandering. Highly recommended to everyone who wishes to understand the minds of holocaust survivors and their children.

Kaddish for an Unborn Child

Kaddish for a Child Not Born is both somber and exhilarating -- somber because of the subject and the obsessive prose, exhilarating because of the creative energy. Written in what strikes the reader as one long paragraph, it reads like a stream of consciousness and is hard to follow. Similarly the illustrative quotes chosen here are merely those the complete review subjectively believes represent the tenor and judgment of the review as a whole. We acknowledge and remind and warn you that they may, in fact, be entirely unrepresentative of the actual reviews by any other measure. Kaddish for an Unborn Child, written a decade and a half later, is anything but. Both novels are autobiographical fictions, but Fatelessness is the story of an adolescent thrust into unspeakable circumstances, relating experience itself in stark, direct form. Kaddish for an Unborn Child is the story of a middle-aged man with both real and literary experience: a writer and translator, his life-work the transformation of fiction, and of experience into fiction.
