An Exclusive Love

Johanna Adorjan’s grandparents endured the Holocaust, fled Hungary during the 1956 revolt and in October 1991, took their own lives in their Denmark apartment. Years later, Adorjan explores this moment in her family history in order to gain a deeper understanding of her grandparents’ lives.

Through interviews with family members and friends, Adorjan tries to piece together who her grandparents really were and tries to figure out what drove them to that decision after all those years. Adorjan mixes their history and her recollections of them with an imagining of what happened on that last day.

This is a sensitive and powerful memoir.
