The lazarus Project by Aleksandar Hemon

Bosnian Vladimir Brik, like Hemon himself, is caught in exile in Chicago by the wars that broke up Yugoslavia. Obsessed with Lazarus Averbach, an immigrant who had fled Moldavian pogroms in the early twentieth century only to be gunned down by Chicago police as a presumed anarchist, Brik returns to Eastern Europe to explore the roots of the earlier tragedy. The parallels illuminate the recurrent motifs of exile and the sufferings of Central Europeans through the bloody history of the twentieth century.

Discussion led by Trish Reeves. From the TALK series, The Exile's Place
