Before departing for Marseilles, fleeing German aggression in Tunis, the Jewish minority community hid all records of their history in the ground under the hamam (Turkish bath) in the Al-Hara district. This mysterious, forgotten history intrigues Helen, the novel’s main protagonist. A Jewish Tunisian living in France, she embarks on a journey to discover her roots, returning to Tunis and specialising in the study of history.
