Polish Heritage Book Club: Death in Breslau

Thursday, June 14, 2018, 3:00 PM

Join us every other month for an English-language book discussion group focused on literature related to Poland and Polish culture. This month we’re discussing Death in Breslau by Marek Krajewski.

Occupied Breslau, 1933: Two young women are found murdered on a train, scorpions writhing on their bodies, an indecipherable note nearby… Police Inspector Eberhard Mock’s weekly assignation with two ladies of the night is interrupted as he is called to investigate. But uncovering the truth is no straightforward matter in Breslau. The city is in the grip of the Gestapo, and has become a place where spies are everywhere, corrupt ministers torture confessions from Jewish merchants, and Freemasons guard their secrets with blackmail and violence. And as Mock and his young assistant Herbert Anwaldt plunge into the city’s squalid underbelly the case takes on a dark twist of the occult when the mysterious note seems to indicate a ritual killing with roots in the Crusades…

Copies of the book are available at the Library Services Desk approximately one month before the screening.
