La Tregua



A voyage that begins in the dark fogs of Auschwitz, and continues through the black markets of Cracow, through the resettlement camps of Katowice, following the movement of Red Army convoys sometimes random, nomadic, through devastated Russia which is at once both tragic and comic., both epic and picaresque.
