Editorial Reviews

The true story of a young man unwilling to die, Shadow of Death is a testament to the remarkable strength of the human spirit. The author, Harry Gordon, was incredibly lucky to have survived the Holocaust. Told in the first person and beautifully narrated by Adam Behr, Gordon talks about his life with his extended family in the Kovno ghetto in Lithuania, first under Russian, then under German rule. One of only a handful of people who survived the brutal occupation, Gordon lost all but three of his family members to the Nazi genocide of the 1940s. His story is a deeply personal, yet dispassionate perspective on the events that shaped his life and resonate in the world even today. He tells us of his constant hunger due to rationing and overworking, and the challenges and constraints of finding ways to survive and hold onto a sense of self under the iron fist of fascism. His vivid depictions of the interactions and behavior of fellow Lithuanians and Jews reflect how the extreme conditions of his youth affected those around him as well as himself. This enduring story is free of self-pity, yet profoundly insightful in its simple re-telling of the experiences of a teenager coming to terms with himself and the world in the crucible of institutionalized hatred and oppression when the mere direction of the finger of a German Commandant determined life or death. Gordon eloquently reminds us in his straightforward prose of how precious and fragile life and the bonds of civility can be.
