Read alsoAs Trevas de Baltar
Os antigos doze Reinos há muito colapsaram. As terras eram agora regidas por um novo soberano.Movido por vingança e sede de poder, Baltar rodeou-se de forças negras e poderosas e a partir do nada construiu-se a si mesmo.Sem misericórdia, aniquilou qualquer significado que as palavras fé e esperança outrora pudessem ter tido e mergulhou…
But three years after the book was first published, articles began to appear that questioned its authenticity and the author's claim that he was a Holocaust survivor. Stefan Maechler, a Swiss historian and expert on anti-Semitism and Switzerland's treatment of refugees during and after World War II, was commissioned on behalf of the publishers of Fragments to conduct a full investigation into Wilkomirski's life. Maechler was given unrestricted access to hundreds of government and personal documents, interviewed eyewitnesses and family members in seven countries, and discovered facts that completely refute Wilkomirski's book.
The Maechler report has implications far beyond the tragic story of one individual's deluded life. It explores our feelings about survivor literature and the impact these works can have on our remembrance of the Holocaust.
