HOUSE BY THE LAKE, THE

Synopsis

In 1993, Thomas Harding travelled to Germany with his grandmother to visit a house by a lake. It had been a holiday home that her family had been forced to leave as the Nazis swept to power. As he began to piece together the lives of the five families who had lived there, he realised that this house had withstood the trauma of a world war, and the dividing of a nation.
