Personal Quote:

I will always defend the legitimacy of literary fiction in expounding historical truth. In the case of deportation, both Jewish and non-Jewish, it is simply not possible to tell, or write the truth. The truth we experienced is not credible, and this is a fact that the Nazis relied upon in terms of their legacy. See more »

Trivia:

After several decades of writing screenplays, novels, plays and essays in French, he wrote his first novel in Spanish - Veinte Anos Y Un Dia" [Twenty Years and a Day]- in 2003, at the age of 79. See more »
