Reviews

Praise for Saul Friedländer:

"Friedländer describes his experiences in lean, graceful sentences; his language seems armored against the dissolution it describes." --New York Review of Books

"[Friedländer's] judgments are scrupulous and levelheaded. And he treats the historical controversies that have raged around so many of the topics he covers with untiring fair-mindedness...Friedländer succeeds in binding together the many different strands of his story with a sure touch. He has written a masterpiece that will endure." --New York Times Book Review

"[Friedländer's] intellectual discipline may be that of the historian but his writing is animated by the passion of memory that only his generation can fully express." --The Guardian
