In Paradise, by Peter Matthiessen
In 1996, Clements Olin, an American professor of Holocaust Studies, is on a weeklong spiritual retreat at Auschwitz to complete his research on the strange suicide of a survivor. As days pass and tensions mount among the participants, Clements is forced to grapple with his own past and a family secret: the Jewish mother abandoned to her doom by his Gentile father.
