THE CRACK AND THE LIGHT. Interview with Edith Bruck

This meeting is part of a cycle of video interviews, made by the magazine Tracce, with Edith Bruck, Jesús Carrasco and Elisa Fuksas: three protagonists of the culture of our time tell each other in a one-on-one conversation, offering their gaze on today, through the wounds of personal and collective history. The title is inspired by Leonard Cohen’s verse, taken from Anthem: “There is a crack in everything and from there the light enters.”
Edith Bruck, deported to concentration camps at the age of thirteen, is one of the greatest living witnesses to the Holocaust. And to what it means to “go back to life” after hell. Born in Hungary in 1931, into a poor Jewish family, she is a writer, translator, film director, author of “Il pane perduto” (The lost bread) (Premio Strega Giovani 2021). In the intimate memory of her life, there is all the passion for the generation of the present.
