Life with uncle

War aftermath

Krsto Papic

Short description:
An exausted and sick old man visits a fifty years old writer, who recognises his uncle in him. Uncle, whom he has not seen for more than three decades, wants his last wish fulfilled: to be buried with a priest and to be forgiven everything he did in the past. The writer warns him that he was once a high state official and a member of Communist Party, and that this will cause unwanted consequences. In the old times, something happened between the two of them, which burdens them today, and while the secret is being revealed, the old man dies. The writer remembers once more his life in 1951. when he attended Teacher's school in Istra, when he had his first love in awkward time, full of dogmas, insincereness and fear.
