He is the son of a Resistance fighter who was murdered in mysterious circumstances- she is the daughter of a doctor who had served in the Wehrmacht.

Both were born at a time when Europe was at last at peace, yet they are both victims of history, for each of them bears the weight of pain and memory, and each is an indirect witness to the crimes and ravages of war. Paul and Clara’s paths cross and entwine in unexpected ways over the years. Paul becomes a sculptor, Clara a photographer, but in their work, as in their lives, neither can escape the truth of Shakespeare’s observation that “the evil that men do lives after them.” Written in beautiful prose, Claras Tale is a magnificent novel that spans the political events of the second half of the 20th century.
