The Sorrowful Eyes of Hannah Karajich

A story of love and the pain of emancipation. Hannah is the most beautiful girl in an orthodox Jewish village in the remote province of Sub-Carpathian Ruthenia. Involvement in the exciting new movement of Zionism takes her away to a nearby town. There she meets and falls in love with the strangely named Ivo Karajich: a Jew, yet not a Jew.Olbracht's novella is both a great love story and a marvellous portrait of a world that modernity threatened and Hitler destroyed.
