Abstract:

"A novel of richness and deep originality, it tells the story of Boris D., a Jewish resident of Lvov who poses as a non-Jew to evade the Nazis. Boris survives imprisonment in a death camp and moves to Paris following the war. Yet his account of his experiences is no celebration of survival; it is rather a commemoration of the horrifying deaths of countless others. Rawicz in this work has found a possible response to the events of the Holocaust: an unforgettable cry of lyric pain that transforms the horrors of history and memory into art"--Page 4 of cover.
