Tamas Dobozy, "The Restoration of the Villa Where Tibor Kalman Once Lived"

Read Tamas Dobozy's short story "The Restoration of the Villa Where Tibor Kalman Once Lived" published as Issue 128 for One Story. It is about WWII and an 18-year old conscript who switches sides, kills two of his fellow soldiers, and feeds names to the Soviets. It is written in 3rd-person p.o.v. It is as much about place as it is about betrayal.
