Summary
Forty years later, Jewish historian Judit Klemmer is making a documentary portraying Judenstaat's history from the time of its founding to the present. She is haunted by the ghost of her dead husband, Hans, a Saxon, shot by a sniper as he conducted the National Symphony. With the grief always fresh, Judit lives a half life, until confronted by a mysterious, flesh and blood ghost from her past who leaves her controversial footage on one of Judenstaat's founding fathers and a note. They lied about the murder. Judit's research into the footage, and what really happened to Hans, embroils her in controversy and conspiracy, collective memory and national amnesia, and provides her with answers far more horrific than she imagined
