This novel is a remarkable socio-political treatise of the city of Lodz - Poland - around the beginning of last century and its Jewish inhabitants. IJ Singer seems to blame his fellow Jewish community members for their eventual downfall through the perils of World War II.
It must be mentioned that IJ Singer broke from the orthodox Hasidic Jewish creed and became a strong member of the more liberal Jewish Enlightenment movement.
This book must be read with a historical open mind.
