Konin: A Quest/Richmond, Theo/Paper/009940981X/S049-D2
In 1939, a community of three thousand vanished into history. Twenty-five years later one man set out to find them. Konin is the story of his obsessive search for a vanished world.
"One of the most moving and unforgettable books I have ever read" - Jan Morris, Independent.
"It is a great book, beautifully written, compelling from beginning to end, and animated by a quiet passion that forgetting should not be allowed its victory... Theo Richmond has rescued a small shetetl town from oblivion: everything is restored with pungent life, the slithering fish in the market, the pickles in the barrels, sounds of Passover, the thwack of the teacher's stick. A place and a people destroyed by horror have found a great remembrancer." - Michael Ignatieff
