First published in Hebrew in 1978 as באדנהיים עיר נופש (Badenhaim `ir nofesh), it was soon translated in to many other languages. Badenheim is an allegorical satire that tells the story of a fictional Jewish town in Austria shortly before its residents are relocated to Nazi concentration camps in Poland.
