Dr. Zhivago Visits Paris” is a history book.

It is about my grandfather, Harald Maresch.

He was always 60 years older than me.  I hardly knew him as a child, but I made sure I visited him and my Oma as an adult. He passed in 1991.

I inherited his manuscript. He translated “Dr. Zhivago” from the original Russian into German using a mechanical typewriter.  It took him nearly three years to complete.

He endured many challenges and pains as an adult during World War 2.  I believe he suffered from undiagnosed PTSD.

When I attended his funeral, I learned a bit more about him, the person.
I decided to preserve his memory. In the research I learned more than I hoped for.

I feel truly blessed to have this chance to preserve his memory.

 

The book is in four parts.

  1. The first section covers the family tree, tracing the family line back to Riga, Latvia and the late 1700’s.
  2. The second section covers the Parisian element – Montmartre.
  3. The third section looks at the “Dr. Zhivago” translation.
  4. The appendix is actually a scanned copy of the 500 plus pages of the typed manuscript.

To help my German relatives, the book is bi-lingual.
Chapters are in the German language supported by photos, certificates and diagrams.
The English equivalent translation follows as the next chapter.

Hardback.  A5.  Colour.  728 Pages.
