LeCarré snippet

Big fan of this author. Been reading him since I was 16 and stayed up all night reading THE SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD. This snippet is from ABSOLUTE FRIENDS. Author is always dropping historical tidbits and insights. One character talking to another.

[“Did you have an opportunity to visit Buchenwald concentration camp during your stay in Weimar?…In addition to Goethe’s celebrated beech tree, the camp’s crematorium is particularly noteworthy. You didn’t even have to be dead to be burned in it. Did you know the Russians kept the camp running after they liberated it from fascism?”]
