STORY SYNOPSIS:
“And They Pillaged the Dead” joins a long list of short stories and novels that explore the topic of World War II and the Holocaust. But the story does so through the unique vantage point of Brendan, our thirty-year-old narrator who visits his omi (the German word for grandmother) Eva and her sister, Inge. Brendan has stumbled and struggled through most of his adult life, having lost his job, girlfriend, and nearly all of his material possessions. He visits his grandmother and great-aunt in hopes of finding some “totem” in his childhood to explain his very nature, but as he spends more time with them, their own past comes to light and challenges Brendan’s own beliefs and values. “And They Pillaged the Dead” is an eerie and mesmerizing tale about secrets, truth, and the surprising value of material things.
