2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Meaghan on June 15, 2013
Format: Paperback
An interesting and rather different collection of stories about the suffering of people at the hands of both Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Most, but not all, of the narrators are Jewish, and I think they're all Polish.

What makes the stories original is that Grynberg devotes considerable attention to his characters' postwar experiences. So many Holocaust books, both fiction and non-fiction, end at liberation or have just a short epilogue, and sometimes you get this "and they lived happily ever after" sense. But in fact the survivors of the carnage were all severely traumatized, and those in the USSR and eastern Europe had to deal with additional suffering and repression.

This book wouldn't be for everyone, and it took me awhile to finish, but it was certainly worth reading.
