The Chapel at the Edge of the World
There is an Italian chapel on the island of Lamb Holm in Orkney, Scotland. Strong winds buffet it, heavy rain batters it, the summer sun beats relentlessly on it. Still it stands, a mute testimony to peace and understanding. Kirsten McKenzie takes the story of this Italian chapel constructed by World War II prisoners and puts names and faces to it, bringing alive a legend. The story begins with a BBC documentary being shot about the chapel. Only one other prisoner has responded to the invitation – Bertoldo Zanini. This is how the book The Chapel at the edge of the World begins.
