Vasile Enache is a very old man who lives in a small village in eastern Romania. During the summer of 1941, when he was sixteen, he witnessed a massacre of local Jews by the Romanian army. In the new Dublin Review, Philip Ó Ceallaigh describes a visit to Enache and tells the story – officially suppressed and little-known even today in Romania – of that country’s early and enthusiastic embrace of the Nazi project of genocide against the Jews. Also in the autumn issue, Rachel Andrews brings us inside the battle over Ireland’s bogs; Brian Dillon explains how David Bowie invented him and may have invented you, too; Colin Murphy hears the stories of four young people from troubled families who were raised by the Irish state; and Neil Burkey recounts a brush with death in an Alaskan paradise. Plus: short stories by Gwen Goodkin and Cormac James.
