Madame Lazare

by Tadhg Mac Dhonnagain

Ever since she was a young child, Levana has been proud of her Jewish heritage and the strong women who preceded her. One of them is Hana Lazare, Levana's grandmother, who fled as a young girl from her homeland in northern Europe, the only survivor of the Shoah massacre.

But when Hana becomes mentally confused at the end of her life, fragments of information leak from her mouth which upsets Levana. The young woman is sent on a journey that forces her to question everything her grandmother ever said to her. As the story moves from Paris to Brussels to the west of Ireland, Levana approaches the true story of her grandmother and the tragedy that befell Madame Lazare 's secret life.

Ó bhí sí ina páiste óg, tá Levana bródúil as a dúchas Giúdach agus as na mná láidre a chuaigh roimpi. Duine acu sin í Hana Lazare, seanmháthair Levana, a theith ina cailín óg di óna tír dhúchais i dtuaisceart na hEorpa, an t-aon duine amháin dá muintir a tháinig slán ó shlad an Shoah.

Ach nuair a thagann mearbhall intinne ar Hana i ndeireadh a saoil, sceitheann blúirí eolais óna béal a fhágann Levana trína chéile. Seoltar an bhean óg ar aistear a thugann uirthi gach rud a dúirt a seanmháthair riamh léi a cheistiú. De réir mar a ghluaiseann an scéal ó Pháras go dtí an Bhruiséil go hiarthar na hÉireann, druideann Levana le fíorscéal a seanmháthar agus leis an tubaiste ba chúis leis an saol rúnda atá caite ag Madame Lazare.
