Born in Spain to a father who was later a diplomat for the Spanish Republic, he fought for that Republic himself until its defeat in and then fled to France. When fascism followed him there a short while later, he joined the French resistance and was taken prisoner by the Nazi occupation forces. Deported to Buchenwald, he survived until the liberation and spent the next two decades working in the illegal apparatus of the Spanish Communist Party.

A Euro-communist avant de la lettre, he fell afoul of Stalinism and the party and chose to emphasize himself as a writer.

Unfortunately, the guy from Semur dies before their arrival and the rest of the story is more lackluster. Nothing very remarkable. Nothing execrable, either, in this honest story. Semprun used to recite this to himself as an insurance against conceit. Because, actually, Paulhan was not far off. For him, the most remarkable thing is the literary location of the camp. It is erected just outside Weimar, where once Goethe and Eckerman went on reflective strolls together.

In the camp itself, the SS guards lovingly preserve the beech tree under which the two men used to sit. Semprun was a teenager when he joined the French resistance, and he was still young and resilient when he got out of Buchenwald. Relatively unscarred, he resolved that it would be morbid to dwell on the camp and abandoned the attempt to write about it.

But now Semprun is a veteran whether he chooses to be or not. His reading of Primo Levi has obviously been seminal here. The work of memory and of history have become more pressing because the ranks of the witnesses are thinning. He realizes that he and Levi started to write their recollections at almost the same time. Through these shifting and refracting prisms, Semprun surveys the whole experience of nazism afresh. His memory is jogged--jolted might be a better word--by his physical revisiting of the scene.

He discovers, furthermore, that the Stalinist authorities were quick to reopen Buchenwald and used it as a camp for their own purposes. Now, he finds everything much more complex and many-sided than that. And the site of Weimar-Buchenwald could become the symbol of this idea, a place of remembrance and promise. Hot Property.

The Long Voyage

He was educated in France and joined the Resistance when he was still in his teens. The Germans caught up with him and sent him to Buchenwald. Somehow he survived and was able to go back to France, where he is now living. This international award is sponsored by 13 publishers, including The Grove Press in the United States. French civilians, arrested by the Germans—members of the underground, hostages, people who happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time—have been crowded into the train, of them per padlocked boxcar. The trip was to take five days and five nights.
