Abstract:

Pat Goldman, a successful Dublin journalist, travels to Israel to report on the Intifada. Before she leaves, her mother tells her of a sister her parents had given to Christian friends to care for before they were deported to a Nazi concentration camp. As she gets embroiled in the complexities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Pat meets Daniel, ruthless member of the renowned Israeli secret service, himself a son of Holocaust survivors, and begins a hazardous journey into her survivor family past. Unveiling layer after hurt layer of Daniel's pain, Pat begins to uncover the secrets of her own alienated Irish-Jewish childhood. Will she find a clue to the heart of her darkness? Relentless, uncompromising, Songs on the Death of Children charts the shadowy back lanes of post-Holocaust memory and loss.
