Otto Dov Kulka was interned at the Terezín ghetto at the age of nine and was later sent to the Auschwitz death camp. Long-ago personal experiences pursue him constantly and after many years return to him as living images and reminiscences of a deep childhood trauma that he has not fully come to terms with to this day.

The book Landscapes of the Metropolis of Death is the result of one man’s unique and powerful experiment in searching for a way to understand his past (and our history).

This evening with the author on the occasion of the Czech publication of his book was held by the VHL in cooperation with the Torst publishing house and the Israeli Embassy in Prague.
