Bärbel  Schäfer - My Afternoons with Eva


"I see the number on her arm and could weep." Bärbel Schäfer

Two women, two generations, two different worlds: Bärbel Schäfer and 85-year-old Eva Szepesi. Eva has a number tattooed on her arm. Eva was only eleven years old when she had to flee alone from the Nazis and then ended up in Auschwitz … Every Wednesday Bärbel Schäfer visits her friend, and the two of them talk about violence, terror and fear, but also about friendship, tolerance, a feeling of security and respect.

This book is about one of the last remaining survivors of a concentration camp. Bärbel Schäfer has with empathy and literary brilliance managed to set off her own biography against Eva's narrative, thus bringing the old lady's distressing experiences into the present day.

Literarily brilliant and filled with empathy.
