?A subtly compelling, fast-paced memoir of the Nazis? coming to power told from the point of view of a perceptive child.... A powerful indictment? Kirkus ?A moving story and a very powerful metaphor for the Jewish experience in Nazi Germany? Independent ?The voice is that of a schoolboy struggling to come to terms with an incomprehensible world. The naive perspective is hardly innovative, but Durlacher puts it to chilling effect? Guardian
About the Author
Gerhard Durlacher was born in Germany in 1928. As a child, he fled with his family to Holland, from where he was taken to a concentration camp. After the war, he returned to Holland, where he taught sociology at the University of Amsterdam for many years. Like the writings of Primo Levi, his work constitutes an essential reflection on the Holocaust. He died in 1998.
