Na střeše je Mendelssohn (Mendelssohn is on the Roof)

On the roof of Prague’s concert hall, Julius Schlesinger, aspiring SS officer, is charged with the removal of the statue of the Jew Mendelssohn–but which one is he? Remembering his course on “racial science,” Schlesinger instructs his men to pull down the statue with the biggest nose. Only as the statue topples does he recognize the face of Richard Wagner. This is just the beginning in Weil’s novel, which traces the transformation of ordinary lives in Nazi-occupied Prague.
