An Eastern European masterpiece translated into English for the first time by an award-winning Irish writer. 'For Two Thousand Years' is the profoundly moving story of a young Jewish man who tries to understand the increasingly polarised society he lives in as the Second World War looms ahead. Constantly threatened and often beaten up, he seeks beauty, truth and meaning in the hateful world that surrounds him as people decide he doesn't belong in their country.
