Bad Faith
By:Carmen Callil
List: $16.95
Price: $12.71
Bad Faith tells the story of one of history's most despicable villains and conmen - Louis Darquier, Nazi collaborator and Commissioner for Jewish Affairs, who dissembled his way to power in the Vichy government and was responsible for sending thousands of children to the gas chambers. After the war he left France, never to be brought to justice. Early in his career Louis married the alcoholic Myrtle Jones from Tasmania, equally practiced in the arts of fantasy and deception, and together they had a child, Anne, whom they abandoned in England. Her tragic story is woven through the narrative. In Carmen Callil's masterful, elegiac and sometimes darkly comic account, Darquier's rise during the years leading up to the Second World War mirrors the growth of French anti-Semitism. Epic, haunting, the product of extraordinary research, this is a study in powerlessness, hatred and the role of remembrance.
