A Space in Time

Do not oick up this book unless you are prepared to put aside all calls for help and all required duties. Once you start reading you will be pulled into a world of apprehension, which begins in 1929 when the Bauhaus structure is planned and built by a Jewish family in Prague, Czechoslovakia. Your antennae will be immediately alerted to the rise of Nazism with its attendant consequences for the Landauer family. Characterization includes the house as well as the family, as the house is always sensitive to its use and its occupants. A broad picture of wartime is delineated. but the focus always narrows to the plight of the house.
