  • La carte postale / Anne BEREST - Ed. Grasset - Prix Renaudot des lycéens 2021

    In summary:
    "It was January 2003. In our mailbox, among the traditional greeting cards, was a strange postcard. It was not signed, the author had wanted to remain anonymous. The Garnier Opera on one side, and on the other, the names of my mother's grandparents, her aunt and uncle, who died in Auschwitz in 1942. 20 years later, I decided to find out who had sent us this postcard.

    La carte postale / Anne BEREST - Ed. Grasset - Prix Renaudot des lycéens 2021

    In summary:
    "It was January 2003. In our mailbox, among the traditional greeting cards, was a strange postcard. It was not signed, the author had wanted to remain anonymous. The Garnier Opera on one side, and on the other, the names of my mother's grandparents, her aunt and uncle, who died in Auschwitz in 1942. 20 years later, I decided to find out who had sent us this postcard. Twenty years later, I decided to find out who had sent us that postcard, and with my mother's help, I investigated. I explored all the hypotheses that were open to me. With the help of a private detective, a criminologist, I questioned the inhabitants of the village where my family was arrested, I moved heaven and earth. And I got there. This investigation took me back one hundred years. I retraced the romantic destiny of the Rabinoviches, their escape from Russia, their journey to Latvia and then to Palestine. And finally, their arrival in Paris, with the war and its disaster. I tried to understand how my grandmother Myriam was the only one who escaped deportation. And to clear up the mysteries surrounding her two marriages. I had to immerse myself in the history of my ancestors, as I had done with my sister Claire for my previous book, Gabrièle. This book is both an investigation, a novel of my ancestors, and an initiatory quest into what it means to be Jewish in a secular life."
