A refugee in Paris after fleeing the Spanish Civil War, Jorge Semprún (1923-2011) would eventually join the French Resistance, be arrested by the Gestapo and deported to Buchenwald. After liberation, he worked as a clandestine Communist operative between Spain and France. Kicked out of the party in 1964, he wrote novels, memoirs, plays, and scripts for Joseph Losey, Costa-Gavras, and Alain Resnais, beginning with his own story, La Guerre est Finie. Semprún’s movie star looks and heroism made him a 20th century legend. Soledad Fox Maura’s Exile, Writer, Soldier, Spy (Arcade), the first in-depth biography of Semprún, will be on sale at our concession.
