Editorial Reviews


“This is the essence of the Holocaust, and perhaps, as the human condition taken to an extreme, this is life itself, replete with contradictions and painful to the point of horror, or absurdity… This is a book written by a person who loves people, yet who has every reason to hate them.” —Maariv, a daily Israeli newspaper

“A remarkably mature literary work…[about] a mother whose personality pervades the book…The author’s impulse is to tell the story the way that it happened, and to memorialize a remarkable mother... But through her, [the book] also illuminates the uniqueness of the author…[The narrative] has a breathtaking flow.” —Hillel Weiss, Professor Emeritus of Literature at Bar Ilan University, Tel Aviv

“A book like this has never been written… This is an almost breathless stream of consciousness, in which facts, memories, dream fragments and thoughts are woven together into a single delicate, sensitive tapestry, with latent suspense… The author recreates a conflicted and intense feminine awareness…in a marvellous manner, and penetrates the heroine’s tender and tortuous thoughts...Thrilling and out of the ordinary.” —Shmuel Faust, editor of Makor Rishon, a weekly Israeli newspaper

“This superb storyteller creates a whole world and skillfully relates the painful chronicle of his family from a totally surprising perspective, and a complex dialogue with various worlds…Unreservedly recommended to anyone interested in the endless complexity of the Jewish family, and in engrossing documentation of the days of the Second World War.” —Rachel Elior, Professor of Jewish Philosophy at Hebrew University, Jerusalem
