  • , In 1988 Patrick Modiano stumbled across an ad between the stock market report and a story of a school visit to Marechal Petain in , In 1988 Patrick Modiano stumbled across an ad between the stock market report and a story of a school visit to Marechal Petain in the personal columns of Paris Soir from December 31, 1941 We are looking for a young girl, Dora Bruder, 15 years old, five feet tall, round face, gray brown eyes, gray sportscoat, burgundy pullover, navy blue hat and skirt, brown athletic shoes Send all information to Mr and Mrs Bruder, 41, Boulevard Ornano, Paris Placed by the parents of a 15 year old Jewish girl who had run away from her convent school just before New Year s Eve, this ad set Modiano on a quest to find out everything he could about Dora Bruder and why she ran away from the Catholic boarding school that had been hiding her He found only one other official mention of her name on a list of Jews deported from Paris to Auschwitz in September 1942.With no knowledge of Dora Bruder aside from these two records of disappearances, Modiano continued to dig for fragments from Dora s past What little he found in official records or through remaining family members, Modiano transforms into a meditation on the immense losses of the period lost people, lost stories, and lost history As he tries to find connections to Dora, Modiano delivers a moving account of the ten year investigation that took him back to the sights and sounds of Paris under the Occupation and the paranoia of the Petain regime In his efforts to exhume her from the past, Modiano realizes that he must come to terms with the specters of his own troubled adolescence The result is a montage of creative and historical material that unfolds as a moving rumination on loss.

    1. Patrick Modiano is a French language novelist and winner of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Literature.He is a winner of the Grand prix du roman de l Acad mie fran aise in 1972, the Prix Goncourt in 1978 for his novel Rue des boutiques obscures and of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2014.Modiano s parents met in occupied Paris during World War II and began their relationship in semi clandestinity Modiano s childhood took place in a unique atmosphere between the absence of his father of which he heard many troubled stories and his mother s frequent tours, he had to complete his secondary education by government aid This brought him closer to his brother, Rudy, who died of a disease at age 10 the works of Patrick Modiano from 1967 to 1982 are dedicated to him This disappearance announced the end of the author s childhood, who continued to hold a marked nostalgia for this period.Modiano studied at the cole du Montcel primary school in Jouy en Josas, at the Coll ge Saint Joseph de Th nes in Haute Savoie, and then at the Lyc e Henri IV high school in Paris While he was at Henri IV, he took geometry lessons from writer Raymond Queneau, who was a friend of Modiano s mother He received his baccalaureate at Annecy but didn t proceed with his higher education.His meeting with Queneau, the author of Zazie dans le m tro, is crucial Modiano was introduced to the literary world by Queneau, and this gave him the opportunity to attend a cocktail party given by publishing house ditions Gallimard He published his first novel, La Place de l toile, with them in 1968, after having read the manuscript to Raymond Queneau Starting that year, he did nothing but write.On September 12, 1970, Modiano married Dominique Zerhfuss I have a catastrophic souvenir of the day of our marriage It rained A real nightmare Our groomsmen were Queneau, who had mentored Patrick since his adolescence, and Malraux, a friend of my father They started to argue about Dubuffet, and it was like we were watching a tennis match That said, it would have been funny to have some photos, but the only person who had a camera forgot to bring the film There is only one photo remaining of us, from behind and under an umbrella Interview with Elle, 6 October 2003 From their marriage came two girls, Zina 1974 and Marie 1978.Modiano has mentioned on Oct 9, 2014, during an interview with La Grande Librairie, that one of the books which had a great impact on his writing life was Le c ur est un chasseur solitaire The Heart is a Lonely Hunter , the first novel published by Carson McCullers in 1940 Arabic

    2. When I was nineteen I had a huge crush on Katherine Mansfield. I loved her letters and journal and the tragedy of her short life moved me. So when I went to Paris, the city she loved above all others, I decided to try to find her. There was a hotel she always stayed in. She stayed there when she was happy and in love and she also stayed there when she knew she was going to die. It’s called The Select Hotel and I was excited to discover it’s still there, in the Place de la Sorbonne, not far f [...]

    3. December 31st, 1941. A missing person ad is published in the Paris Soir journal. Her name is Dora Bruder, she is fifteen and of Jewish descent. The setting is Paris during the German occupation. Nine months later, the same name appears in a list of deported prisoners to Auschwitz.“The search warrant” is much more than a journalistic exploration of Dora’s disappearance. It is an elegy to the fate of countless people, young and old, artists and professors, men and women, gentry and peasants, [...]

    4. Patrick Modiano is the winner of Nobel Prize for Literature this year (2014). And the Nobel Prize committee cited the following as the specialty of Modiano's writing: "for the art of memory with which he has evoked the most ungraspable human destinies and uncovered the life-world of the occupation".Having read this book I can say that the Nobel Committee's statement about Modiano's writing is very true. Personally speaking, the memory and the difficult past have been my favourite themes in the n [...]

    5. La verità basta a se stessa"Altri, () proprio prima della mia nascita, avevano patito pene di ogni sorta per consentire a noi di provare soltanto piccoli dispiaceri" (P. Modiano è nato nel 1945).Il narratore è scosso, dopo oltre mezzo secolo dalla pubblicazione, da una piccola inserzione su Paris-Soir di fine '41, in cui i genitori ricercano la figlia quindicenne Dora Bruder, evidentemente scomparsa o fuggita.Eccoci dunque sulle tracce di Dora, alla ricerca di informazioni, documenti, percorr [...]

    6. In usual style Modiano presents a snapshop of time and masters to unfold every detail in his melodic yet melancholic style-This time though, the inspiration for his novel is bordering the depressing, it being a young girl, first believed to "just" have gone missing. Later we find out that she met a much more sinister fate This is about Vichy - and I´m not talking about the mineral water - but of one of the darkest spots in French history.Rest in Peace, Dora Bruder.The below is taken from: bbc/h [...]

    7. I had decided not to read Modiano for sentimental reasons many years ago. And then there was the Nobel Prize.I read "Pour que tu ne te perdes" and I found that it was really well. I promised myself of all read of him. I bought 3 books of him today. I begin with Dora. At the beginning there is a simple classified ads in a newspaper of 1941. Dora Bruder made a running away. Dora, a rebellious teenager. Modiano decides to inquire into her life. He visits the places where she has lived, walks on her [...]

    8. “Ever since, the Paris wherein I have tried to retrace her steps has remained as silent and deserted as it was on that day. I walk through empty streets. For me, they are always empty, even at dusk, during the rush hour, when the crowds are hurrying towards the mouths of the métro. I think of her in spite of myself, sensing an echo of her presence in this neighborhood or that.”Dora Bruder, or The Search WarrantPatrick Modiano was doing what he does a lot, one day in 1988. He was looking at [...]

    9. While reading Suspended Sentences: Three Novellas, I was so strongly reminded of the films of Alain Resnais that I went back and watched a few of them. I drew out the resonances in yesterday's column for 3 Quarks Daily. Here I will simply say that Modiano's fiction addresses the same gaps in memory as Resnais's filmMuriel, or the time of return, locating these lacunae in an actual place in much the same way that the bombed-out city of Boulogne was employed by the director to suggest impermanence [...]

    10. Fifteen-year-old Dora Bruder didn't survive the Holocaust. Neither did her mother or father. Forget the heroic stories of the French Resistance. Here is the true face of France during World War 2. At no point in this brief, tragic book did poor Dora Bruder, lost to the conflagration of the Holocaust, come into contact with Germans. Not until the doors of the train she was riding in opened in Auschwitz, that is.A French policeman randomly stopped her on the street to check if she was Jewish; a Fr [...]

    11. Who will grieve for this woman? Does she not seem too insignificant for our concern? Yet in my heart I never will deny her, who suffered death because she chose to turnAnna Akhmatova

    12. In einer Zeitungsausgabe aus dem 2. Weltkrieg stößt der Literat Patrick Modiano auf eine Suchanzeige, die von einem jüdischen Ehepaar in Paris geschaltet wurde. Sie suchten ihre fünfzehnjährige Tochter Dora. Dora Bruder. Wer war Dora Bruder und was ist aus ihr geworden? Modiano, den die Besatzungszeit auch im Zusammenhang mit den Erlebnissen seines eigenen, jüdischen Vaters umtreibt, begibt sich auf die Suche.Als während der Frankfurter Buchmesse 2014 der Literaturnobelpreis an den franz [...]

    13. আশির দশকের শেষদিকে পুরোনো সংবাদপত্র নাড়াচাড়া করছিলেন প্যাট্রিক মোদিয়ানো, হঠাৎ চোখে পড়ে যায় একটি হারানো বিজ্ঞপ্তি। ১৯৪১ সালের ডিসেম্বর মাসে প্রকাশিত সেই নোটিশে বলছে - ডোরা ব্রুডার নামের এ [...]

    14. Dora Bruder is a little book about mostly nothing. It's the story of a man who finds a girl's name in a newspaper, dated December 1941, French Occupation in full swing, and notes that he himself had once walked countless steps past the spot where this girl used to live. So begins the link between Modiano and Dora, and Modiano's successive attempts to uncover more of Dora's story. The novel doesn't have a traditional narrative arc, and it's mostly composed of wanderings, of rememberings, always o [...]

    15. Custode del tempoSecondo libro consecutivo che leggo di Modiano; lettura stimolata da quella breve ma intensa de «L'orizzonte» e dall'approssimarsi del giorno della memoria, e quindi dalla mia decisione di leggere sempre, in quei giorni, almeno un libro che parli e ricordi la Shoah. Ma se la prima era stata una lettura inconsapevole - di Modiano sapevo solo che aveva vinto il premio Nobel per la Letteratura e che era uno scrittore ebreo francese - prima di iniziare «Dora Bruder» ho preferito [...]

    16. The Known and the UnknownI really wanted to quote the final paragraph of Modiano's novel, which is infinitely more moving in its simplicity than anything that comes before. But I will desist, and leave it for the reader to discover—not because it gives away secrets, but because it does the opposite, preserving a secret for all time. It is the one gift he can offer to the tragic subject of his writing, a teenage Jewish girl living in Paris at the time of the German Occupation.So failing that, l [...]

    17. Seconda guerra mondiale, Parigi. Dora Bruder, una normalissima ragazza quindicenne ebrea fugge. Chi era Dora? Dove andava? A cosa pensava? Che fine ha fatto?Modiano viene a conoscenza della sua esistenza alla fine degli anni '80, quando trova per caso un giornale del 1941 che riporta un annuncio nel quale i genitori di Dora annunciano la scomparsa della figlia. E comincia la sua ricerca attraverso le poche tracce che si possono ancora recuperare, dal momento della sua fuga dalla scuola religiosa [...]

    18. 1) It is not easy to describe such a work. It lends itself to being read slowly and quietly in one-sitting, and then ideally many times over the course of one's life, alongside the author's other works. I think it is one of those writings which gains immense power over time. This is a complex evocation of the terrible time-lost Occupation as the narrator, Modiano, drifts from this Paris street to that one, from one building that is now demolished to a house where a childhood acquaintance once st [...]

    19. Dora Bruder, a Jewish teenager, runs away from a French convent school as the government is clamping down on the Jewish population. The author learns about this incident from an old newspaper advertisement and tries to learn what he can about Bruder and her family. In the process, he recalls his own memories of her Paris neighborhood. Much of the book is a discourse on how little he can learn about Dora and what he must surmise. The narrative is disjointed and emotional, and I think Sebald handl [...]

    21. Après avoir lu ce livre, je me suis levé de la chaise sur laquelle je suis resté depuis la première page, j'ai mis le livre sur l'étagère et je suis sorti dans les rues de Cluj. Je suis entree par la rue IC Bratianu et arrivé par la rue Bolyai en front de centre commercial SORA. Bien qu'il y avait des gens à l'extérieur de moi, la ville était comme une terre déserte. Même s'il y avait un embouteillage je me sentais seul. Et je pensée de Dora Bruder.

    22. Apenas el segundo libro de Modiano que leo y ya espero que todo lo demás de él ande por los mismos rumbos. En esta edición, Adolfo García Ortega escribe un prólogo sumamente halagador y se declara modianista para luego afirmar que Dora Bruder es la mejor novela de Modiano. Después de haber aclarado que ha leído toda la obra del francés.De que estás leyendo una obra magistral no te queda duda. Modiano se las ingenia perfectamente para inmiscuirte en los vericuetos de su memoria traducida [...]

    23. Um dia, ao ler um jornal datado de 31 de dezembro de 1941, o narrador/autor, depara-se com a seguinte notícia:“Paris:Procura-se uma rapariga, Dora Bruder, 15 anos, 1m 55, rosto oval, olhos cinzento-acastanhados, casaco desportivo cinzento, camisola em tom bordeaux, saia e chapéu azul-marinho, sapatos leves castanhos. Endereçar todas as indicações ao Sr. E à Srª Bruder, Alameda Ornano, nº41, Paris.”Desde esse dia, tentou reconstruir a história desta jovem judia, até aos seus momento [...]

    24. Dora Bruder, una ragazza ebrea, scompare l'ultimo giorno del 1941, a Parigi. Qualche decennio dopo c'è chi si chiede dov'è finita e racconta passo passo la sua puntigliosa ricerca. Perché lo fa? Intanto per un'analogia: un giorno, da ragazzo, fuggì pure lui, l'ostinato indagatore, assaporando fortemente “l'ebbrezza di spezzare, di punto in bianco, tutti i legami”. Ma soprattutto per un pressante senso di responsabilità: perché altrimenti di Dora e di altre persone come lei “non esist [...]

    25. Per la giornata della memoria volevo leggere qualcosa sull'argomento e dato che non avevo ancora letto nulla di Modiano mi è sembrata una buona occasione. Ma non è stato affatto come me l'aspettavo; nessuna storia inventata o reale di ragazzina deportata, ma una ricerca minuziosa per documentare un'esistenza che altrimenti nessuno avrebbe ricordato, come tante altre finite nei campi di sterminio e nessuno che può testimoniare. E' Il problema degli scomparsi, se non restituiamo volti, storie, [...]

    26. Questo secondo libro che ho letto di Modiano, dopo “Viaggio di nozze”, mi convince sempre più che l’autore scrive soprattutto per se stesso. Tutto è intimo e di una bramosia di sapere squisitamente personale. Molto bello davvero.

    27. "Missing, a young girl, Dora Bruder, age 15, height 1.55 m, oval-shaped face, grey-brown eyes, grey sports jacket, maroon pullover, navy-blue skirt and hat, brown gym shoes. Address all information to M. and Mme Bruder, 41 Boulevard Ornano, Paris."The above was printed in "Paris Soir" dated 31 December 1941. What catches Modiano's interest are the finer details - say, her height was 1.55 m. No more no less. He embarks on a search that lasts longer than a decade, is interjected by other crucial e [...]

    28. “La fuga - a quanto pare - è una richiesta di aiuto e in certi casi una forma di suicidio. Ciò non toglie che per qualche istante si provi una breve sensazione di eternità. Oltre ai legami con il mondo avete rotto anche quelli con il tempo. E capita che alla fine di una mattinata il cielo sia di un azzurro tenue e nulla abbia più peso su di voi. Le lancette dell’orologio del giardino delle Tuileries si sono fermate per sempre. Una formica impiega una vita ad attraversare una macchia di s [...]

    29. You can read this small book (140 pages) in a couple of hours, and you can summarize the content in a few sentences. But I've learned you have to be cautious with Modiano. His seemingly simple stories, written in a very smooth style, hide a great complexity and the intensity of the stories can be quite heavy.In this book for instance there's the story of Dora Bruder, a jewish girl of 15, living in the Paris of 1941, during the occupation by the nazis. She's revolting against her environment, but [...]

    30. Me inicié con el Nobel de 2014 con En el café de la juventud perdida y me pareció una muy buena experiencia para conocer a un autor muy especial, en el sentido que su baza principal es la reconstrucción histórica de situaciones y ambientes, y eso se nota su querida París de los años sesenta que retrata en la novela que menciono. Pero, en el libro que me atañe hoy, la reconstrucción va más allá de pincelar una situación terrible, sino impedir que sea olvidada.Dora Bruder era una niña [...]

    31. Ovo je prva Modianova knjiga koju čitam, i ako su sve takve, nije mi jasna Nobelova nagrada jer bih ovoj knjizi dala eventualno lokalnu seosku nagradu za najbolji kreativno-dokumentarni rad. Ovo je faktografsko, ili pseudofaktografsko delo sa nanosima patetike. Mislim da je jevrejska tema uvek osetljiva jer autori nosi ogromnu umetničku i istorijsku odgovornost - toliko je toga napisano da, kad čitam ovakva dela, očekujem neku novu perspektivu, a ovde je nema. Namera da se popišu ulice i da [...]
