Format: Paperback
Juden Stephen Briggs (James Stephens)

Format: Word doc
Category: Fiction (General/Historical)
Length: 64,000 words approx

Juden is a powerful novel set during the Holocaust. A combination of tragedy and against-the-odds survival adventure, it focuses on one Jewish family caught up in the genocide, and the determined efforts of their teenage son to escape.

Author James Stephens (real name Stephen Briggs) is an experienced writer with some award-winning poetry and two well-received thrillers (Through the Eyes of a Fly and The Tattooist, published in the US) to his name - his real name, that is; both books were published under `Steve Briggs', whereas for Juden he is adopting the pen name James Stephens, presumably because this novel is a bit of a change of direction for him.

Despite having thriller/adventure elements in it, Juden has a weight of grave and earnest feeling behind it. The Holocaust appears to exert an exceptional pull on the author; indeed, in his preface he floats his theory that the Nazis' motive for starting off the Second World War was to provide a smokescreen for the extermination of the Jews. I dare say historians would pick holes in that theory, but there is no doubting what it says about the emotional force behind this author's fictional take on the Holocaust.

The smokescreen theory doesn't actually feature in the story, by the way; it isn't that kind of novel. Rather, it's the story of one family's experience, their journey from well-to-do middle-class security to persecution, horror, death and, just possibly, survival against the odds.

The principal character is Jacob Horowitz, the adolescent son of a happy, contented Polish-Jewish family, presided over by Isaac, a successful restaurateur.

A book that I couldn’t put down. Can’t quite believe the atrocities these people went through, doesn’t seem real somehow until you read books like this. Would recommend highly.

Words cannot describe the horror that all those unfortunate people went through. After reading much on the subject, I find it difficult to understand how such a large population, and indeed the people that undertook such appalling deeds, went along with the `final solution` and evidentally, in some cases, actually enjoyed such sadistic brutality as is related in this tragic account. God forbid that anything like this should ever happen again.

It is chilling to read of the events of certain parts of the WW11. Most novels deal with the dash and glory of our hero's,This author has the courage to deal with
people in conditions that would defeat most of us.The story is harrowing but absorbing, from the innocent opening through the realism of the awakening, and the final relief.I found it difficult to put down. I will be watching for other work by this author James Stephens.
