In My Brother's Image: Twin Brothers Separated by Faith After the Holocaust
Penguin Books, 01.10.2001 - 352 Seiten
In My Brother's Image is Eugene Pogany's extraordinary story of his father and uncle – identical twin brothers born in Hungary of Jewish parents but raised as devout Catholics until the Second World War unravelled their family. In eloquent prose, Pogany portrays how the Holocaust destroyed the brother's close childhood bond: his father, a survivor of a Nazi internment camp, denounced Christianity and returned to the Judaism of his birth, while his uncle, having become a Catholic priest, found shelter during the war in an Italian monastic community. Even after emigrating to America, the brothers remained estranged, each believing the other a traitor to their family's faith. It is a story that encapsulates the drama of a family torn apart by the Holocaust, even as it focuses a wider, impartial lens on the historical rupture between Jews and Catholics.
