In February 1940, the Nazis established what would become the second largest Jewish ghetto in the Polish city of Lodz.

"The Am Spiegelgrund clinic, in glittering Vienna, masqueraded as a well-intentioned reform school for wayward boys and girls and a home for chronically ill children. The reality, however, was very different: in the wake of Germany's annexation of Austria on the eve of World War II, its doctors, nurses, and teachers created a monstrous parody of the institution's benign-sounding brief. The Nazi regime's euthanasia program would come to determine the fate of many of the clinic's inhabitants.Through the eyes of a child inmate, Adrian Ziegler, and a nurse, Anna Katschenka, Steve Sem-Sandberg, the author of the award-winning The Emperor of Lies, explores the very meaning of survival. An absorbing, emotionally overwhelming novel, rich in incident and character, The Chosen Ones is obliquely illuminated by the author's sharp sense of the absurd. Passionately serious, meticulously researched, and deeply profound, this extraordinary and dramatic novel bears witness to oppression and injustice, and offers invaluable and necessary insight into an intolerable chapter in Austria's past"--

Theres, Allt förgängligt och Ravensbrück är tre romaner som Steve Sem-Sandberg gav ut inom loppet av sju år, med början 1996; tre romaner som på olika sätt speglar brytpunkter i det tjugonde århundradet, den tyska hösten och stadsterrorismen i början på 1970-talet, revolutionen och rådsrepubliken i München 1919 och centraleuropa under nazistisk ockupation; nu när man kan läsa dem tillsammans, som fullbordad trilogi, ser man dessutom att det är tre kvinnoporträtt, av tre skrivande kvinnor som på olika sätt präglades av och präglade sitt sekel: den tyska journalisten Ulrike Meinhof, med täcknamnet Theres, den ryska psykoanalytikern och författaren Lou Andreas Salomé och den tjeckiska journalisten, författaren och översättaren Milena Jesenká. Nyutgåvan är försedd med en efterskrift av Steve Sem-Sandberg och ett förord av författaren och kritikern Gabriella Håkansson. [Elib]

O Imperador das Mentiras é um romance sobre o gueto judaico que foi criado pelos nazis na cidade polaca de Lodz. É a história de Mordechai Chaim Rumkowski, o chefe judeu deste campo nomeado pelos nazis, e do seu ambíguo e obscuro papel no extermínio dos judeus polacos. Ao mesmo tempo, descreve a vida na cidade selada, fala da disciplina mortal, do terrível trabalho escravo, da fome e das inúteis tentativas de fuga, mas também da arte da sobrevivência e da notável vontade do homem em viver. Um comovente romance sobre o sofrimento e a extrema maldade, transformado com o talento de Sem-Sandberg num irresistível trabalho de ficção, arrebatador da primeira à última página. Ao mostrar o que o romance pode explicar do Holocausto, o autor apresenta-se como herdeiro de outra forma de cumprir o dever de lembrar: ele não é uma testemunha, mas é um passador. Sem testemunhas a história perde o seu sentido; sem passadores, ela apaga-se
