Filial Calibrations

In December we reported on the Inaugural Calibre Prize for an Outstanding Essay, which was won by Elisabeth Holdsworth. We feel sure that ABR readers will enjoy Ms Holdsworth’s essay, ‘An die Nachgeborenen: For Those Who Come After’, which we publish in full this issue. That is her mother on our front cover. The unfolding story of ‘Mother’s’ removal as a girl from her home in the countryside, of her marriage into a privileged family with close ties to Dutch royalty, and of her betrayal and subsequent incarceration in Dachau during World War II, is not easily forgotten.
