“My romance in a town haunted by its Nazi past”


“I was a young Jewish woman dating an older man, but I couldn’t escape Vienna’s dark history, or my fears about his.” The following is adapted fromEverything Is Going to Be Great: An Underfunded and Overexposed European Grand Tour,” Rachel Shukert’s just-published memoir of traveling and living in Europe in her very early 20s. This excerpt takes place in Vienna, in the summer of 2003. >full text & illustration (c) SALON, 2014
PS. Why are these bitter sweet & slightly kitschy stories – a sort of Nazi romance/porn – so highly in demand in the English-speaking world?
