Description

Out Of Print. - Minor Shelfwear to DJ... Jozsef Lengyels fine artistic honesty, his stark, unfaltering realism (New Statesman), and his confrontation of the most poignant problems of our age, have established him as a major European writer. The Judges Chair takes up the story of young Istvan Banicza, the devoted protg of Ferenc Prenn in 'Prenn Drifting'. Years have gone by and the two men meet again in a Nazi concentration camp. Banicza is a loyal Communist, taking his orders from the underground organization of the Party in the camp. The Americans are advancing but lorry-loads of prisoners are still being sent to the gaschambers. Certain useful men are to be saved and it is Baniczas job to give these chosen few their instructions. The terrible dilemma of whom to save and whom to condemn and how to live with the decision afterwards is the central theme of this stark and deceptively simple story.
