Nemirovsky, Irene - still image [media]

Irene Nemirovsky, the brilliant writer who "could look inside the human soul and make music with her words," became the first (and so far, only) posthumous recipient of the French Prix Renaudot, when her diaries of life under German occupation—written sixty-two years earlier and saved by her daughters—were finally published in 2004.

Institution: Nathalie Proth, Paris
