A novel recreating as fiction the last years of the world-acknowledged painter Charlotte Salomon who was murdered at Auschwitz, aged 26 years and pregnant, in 1943. Since there is only fragmentary information about her last years in Occupied France -MoreA novel recreating as fiction the last years of the world-acknowledged painter Charlotte Salomon who was murdered at Auschwitz, aged 26 years and pregnant, in 1943. Since there is only fragmentary information about her last years in Occupied France - in Villefranche-sur-mer - the novel is fiction based on what little fact is available.

It is set in a France demoralised, shamed, presenting a pitiful resistance to a brutalising occupation force where violence and death are the coin of daily life and affect the individual characters and their interactions in different ways. The story of Charlottes life till this time has been recorded by almost 700 of her gouache paintings which were published by Viking Press in 1986. They are accompanied by text and suggestions for music, probably the first multimedia work ever created.

The manuscript was left by Charlotte with the doctor in Villefranche telling him take care of this, its all my life. It was retrieved by Charlottes father and step-mother who survived the Nazi era in Holland. The collection was donated to the Jewish Museum in Amsterdam. Intrinsic to this novel is the atmosphere of violence and death pervading at this time in conquered France and the additional motif that Charlotte suffered from a genetic disorder of suicide. The subtle relationships between love and death are explored in the stories of the characters lives at this time.
