Book Description

4 Jan 2001 Vintage Classics
THE BOOK: In every generation, according to Jewish tradition, thirty-six just men, the Lamed-waf, are born to take the burden of the world's suffering upon themselves. At York in 1185 the just man was Rabbi Yom Tov Levey, whose sacrifice so touched God that he gave his descendants one just man each generation, all the way down to Ernie Levey, the last of the just, killed at Auschwitz in 1943. This, then, is the story of Ernie Levey.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best novel I've ever read 11 April 1997
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
There is a Jewish legend that there is a line of just men. This novel chronicles the tragic demise of the last of those just men (hence the title) at the hands of the Nazis. The story is thick with struggle and triumph, good and evil, joy and misery, but is never maudlin or melodramatic. Schwartz-Bart's words are like brush strokes in a painting, creating a cinematic cast, landscape, and sweeping emotion. In addition to being a gripping intrapsychic read, the book is an excellent individual-level history of the Holocaust--though fiction, it is remarkably true to reality and detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning! 23 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the best and most moving novel about the Holocaust that I have ever read. It is intelligently written and eminently readable. It grips from the very first page and doesn't let the reader go. Brilliant book. Simply brilliant.
