Blood on the page : a murder, a secret trial and a search for the truth by Thomas Harding( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A groundbreaking examination of a terrifying murder and its aftermath by the bestselling author of Hanns and Rudolf and The House by the Lake. In June 2006, police were called to number 9 Downshire Hill in Hampstead. The owner of the house, Allan Chappelow, was an award-winning photographer and biographer, an expert on George Bernard Shaw, and a notorious recluse, who had not been seen for several weeks. Someone had recently accessed his bank accounts, and attempted to withdraw large amounts of money. Inside the darkened house, officers found piles of rubbish, trees growing through the floor, and, in what was once the living room, the body of Chappelow, battered to death, partially burned and buried under four feet of paper. The man eventually arrested on suspicion of his murder was a Chinese dissident named Wang Yam- a man who claimed to be the grandson of one of Mao's closest aides, and a key negotiator in the Tiananmen Square protests. His trial was the first in modern British history to be held 'in camera'- closed, carefully controlled, secret. Wang Yam was found guilty, but has always protested his innocence. Thomas Harding has spent the past two years investigating the case, interviewing key witnesses, investigating officers, forensic experts and the journalists who broke the story, and has unearthed shocking and revelatory new material on the killing, the victim and the supposed perpetrator. It is a crime that has been described in the press and by the leading detective as 'the greatest whodunnit' of recent years- an extraordinary tale of isolation, deception and brutal violence, stretching from the quiet streets of north London to the Palace of Westminster and beyond

Kadian journal by Thomas Harding( Book )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In July 2012 Thomas Harding's fourteen-year-old son Kadian was killed in a bicycle accident. Shortly afterwards Thomas began to write. This book is the result. Beginning on the day of Kadian's death, and continuing to the one-year anniversary, and beyond, Kadian Journal is a record of grief in its rawest form, and of a mind in shock and questioning a strange new reality. Interspersed within the journal are fragments of memory: jewel-bright everyday moments that slowly combine to form a biography of a lost son, and a lost life. Kadian Journal is a document of startling bravery and candour - a description of a family dislocated and united by tragedy, and a beautiful and moving tribute to a son
Hanns und Rudolf Der deutsche Jude und die Jagd nach dem Kommandanten von Auschwitz by Thomas Harding( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in German and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Geschichte zweier Menschen, die unterschiedlicher nicht hätten sein können "Thomas Harding eröffnet einen neuen Blick auf das Gift des Nazismus und einen seiner tödlichsten Vollstrecker." The Times Thomas Harding kannte seinen Großonkel Hanns Alexander als einen freundlichen Mann mit viel Familiensinn, der ein bürgerliches Leben als Bankangestellter in London geführt hatte, sich für die Synagoge engagierte und gerne Witze machte. Seine jüdische Familie stammte aus Berlin und war in den 1930er-Jahren in letzter Minute nach England ins Exil entkommen. Das wussten alle. Ansonsten wurde über den Krieg nicht gesprochen. Erst nach dem Tod von Hanns Alexander erfuhr Harding, dass er ein Nazi-Jäger gewesen war. Er hatte Rudolf Höss, den nach Kriegsende untergetauchten Kommandanten von Auschwitz, in seinem Versteck auf einem Bauernhof in Norddeutschland aufgespürt und so dafür gesorgt, dass ihm der Prozess gemacht wurde. Thomas Harding wurde für sein Buch mit dem JQ Wingate Prize 2015, dem "Jewish Booker Prize", ausgezeichnet. Aus der Begründung: "Das Buch erzählt die Geschichte dieser beiden Deutschen, eines Juden und eines Katholiken, deren Lebensläufe auseinanderklafften und sich überschnitten, auf eine frappierende Art und Weise."
The house by the lake : a story of Germany by Thomas Harding( )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Finalist for the Costa Book Award Longlisted for the Orwell Prize Named a Best Book of the Year by The Times (London) New Statesman (London) Daily Express (London) Commonweal magazine In the summer of 1993, Thomas Harding traveled to Germany with his grandmother to visit a small house by a lake on the outskirts of Berlin. It had been her "soul place," she said?a holiday home for her and her family, but also a refuge?until the 1930s, when the Nazis' rise to power forced them to leave. The trip was his grandmother's chance to remember her childhood sanctuary as it was. But the house had changed, and when Harding returned once again nearly twenty years later, it was about to be demolished. It now belonged to the government, and as Harding began to inquire about whether the house could be saved, he unearthed secrets that had lain hidden for decades. Slowly he began to piece together the lives of the five families who had lived there: a wealthy landowner, a prosperous Jewish family, a renowned composer, a widow and her children, a Stasi informant. All had made the house their home, and all but one had been forced out. The house had weathered storms, fires and abandonment, witnessed violence, betrayals and murders, and had withstood the trauma of a world war and the dividing of a nation. Breathtaking in scope and intimate in its detail, The House by the Lake is a groundbreaking and revelatory new history of Germany, told over a tumultuous century through the story of a small wooden house

The house by the lake : a story of Germany by Thomas Harding( Recording )

In the summer of 1993, Thomas Harding travelled to Germany with his grandmother to visit a small house by a lake on the outskirts of Berlin. It had been her 'soul place' as a child, she said - a holiday home for her and her family, but much more - a sanctuary, a refuge. In the 1930s, she had been forced to leave the house, fleeing to England as the Nazis swept to power. The trip, she said, was a chance to see it one last time, to remember it as it was. But the house had changed. Nearly twenty years later Thomas returned to the house. It was government property now, derelict, and soon to be demolished. It was his legacy, one that had been loved, abandoned, fought over - a house his grandmother had desired until her death. Could it be saved? And should it be saved? 'The House by the Lake' is a history of Germany over a tumultuous century, told through the story of a small wooden house
