“A remarkable achievement… The Orpheus Clock is
an absolute must read.” -- Annie Jacobsen, New York Times bestselling
“Even readers well familiar with World War II and
Holocaust history will find this a fresh and lively read.” -- Christian
The Orpheus Clockis the extraordinary
story of a prominent German family and their priceless art collection, the
Nazis who robbed them, and a son’s decades-long and continuing quest for
justice. Following the death of his father, Simon Goodmanand his family
discovered in the 1990s a trove of letters, documents and other
correspondence. Goodman’s quest has led to the recovery of hundreds of
his family’s possessions and the restoration of their legacy, and has helped to
change International policy regarding art restitution. This arresting
account of Goodman’s struggle combines the poignant and tragic story of a
family with an intricate detective story.
