Jim Van Buskirk leads a discussion of Diary of the Fall by Michel Laub.

This Brazilian novel about memory and identity covers three generations: a grandfather who survived Auschwitz and spent the rest of his life trying to forget it; a father in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease who is fighting to remember everything; and the forty-year-old narrator who remains haunted by his role decades earlier in a brutal prank on a fellow student.
