Nathan Fabre, a young Catholic teacher, while working on his thesis about French resistance to the Nazis during World War II, discovers a photograph of a prisoner in Buchenwald concentration camp whose resemblance to his father is uncanny. When his father shrugs off his inquiries, Nathan’s research becomes more than academic. By tracking down curators and survivors and confronting family members, Nathan pieces together secrets that have been kept hidden for more than 60 years that prompt him to question everything he knew about his family. His research is complicated by his romance with a young German woman who shares her own family’s history. Based on a best-selling novel of the same name, The Origin of Violence is a mesmerizing thriller.
