  WG Sebald's Austerlitz
Jacques Austerlitz is a fellow academic met on one of the narrator's travels.
For example, Austerlitz loses himself in the small print of works he is reading in a Paris library as he seeks references to his father.
That Austerlitz is an imagined character reasserts the fact, and indicates that the novel as an art form suppresses as much as it illuminates, no matter how much light is beamed into the darkness.

  Flak Magazine: Review of Austerlitz, 10.23.01
His books, such as his most recent, "Austerlitz," are interspersed with images, photographs that accompany the narrative but also create a narrative of their own, a fl-and-white tableau of a Europe gone forever, a world of iron and railroads and gas lamps and rundown cemeteries.
Austerlitz, we learn, is not Welsh but Czech in origin, having been sent off to England on the eve of World War II by his parents.
At the same time, though, it is Austerlitz's discovery of his past that motivates him in other aspects of his life — academics, his love life — and one suspects that, had he not uncovered it, he would be a lonely Welsh farmer, uneasy with his life but not knowing why.

 Austerlitz by W G Sebald, published by Penguin, reviews and opinions by and for book clubs and reading groups
From the acclaimed author W G Sebald, this novel is an eloquent pastiche of fiction and art, uncovering the life of a modern 'wandering Jew' who was shipped to Wales as a child on the 'kinder transport' and is now searching for his past.
Austerlitz himself has few connections with others and so what relationships do exist in the book are barely developed.

WG Sebald's Austerlitz has something of the fractured narrative and wanderlust of his novels The Emigrants and The Rings of Saturn, and continues to develop their obsession with history, loss and memory--or more precisely in this case, forgetting.
At heart, though, Austerlitz is a serious indictment of modern Europe's "avoidance system", its repeated patterns of personal and institutional forgetting that, even within Austerlitz's own lifetime, have contrived to obscure, ignore and render irretrievable his past and the source of his pain.
We follow Austerlitz as he grapples with his anxiety and distress, his "sense of rejection and annihilation" which links his story to the wider currents of Europe's history of denial and admission.

Napoleon advanced as far as Brünn (Brno) in late November and then retired a few miles, hoping that the Russian commander, Prince Mikhail Ilarionovich Kutuzov, would try to outflank him and cut off his line of retreat to Vienna.
The anti-French allies thereupon occupied the Pratzen plateau west of Austerlitz; and, on December 2, the Russians advanced to attack Napoleon's right flank, as he had hoped they would.

Austerlitz] is in complete discrepancy with the reality to which it claims to bear witness” (290), though an understandable reaction by scholars engaged in painstaking research, is an exaggeration that does not square with the praise the authors give Sebald for having revealed the existence of the Austerlitz camp to the reading public.
