In 1996, more than a hundred people gather at the site of a former death camp. They offer prayer and witness at the crematoria and meditate on the selection platform. They eat and sleep in the Nazi officers? quarters. They are joined by an American academic of Polish descent? there to complete research on the suicide of a survivor. As the days pass? tensions surface among the participants? stripping away any easy pretense to resolution or healing.

As always with Matthiessen, the writing is beautiful and the ideas very interesting, but in this case it is as if the subject is too big and eludes him.
