The Acts of My MotherBook - 2018
Thirty years after the fall of communism in Hungary, as András Forgách investigated his family's past, he uncovered a horrifying truth. His mother, whom he deeply loved, had been an informant for the Kádár regime. She had informed not only on acquaintances but on family, friends and even her children. In a work of heartbreaking intensity and nuance, Forgách must confront the truth about the woman who was simultaneously an informant as well as a tender and loveable parent, a victim and a perpetrator. In The Acts of My Mother, Forgách gives voice to his deceased mother, holding her responsible for her deeds while defending the memories he cherished of her as a son.
