Reviews

Kraus draws on his experience in the children's block at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in this stirring tale, his first to be published in English. The powerful story delivers arresting vignettes that will force readers to consider the limits and possibilities of humanity.-- (01/13/2020)
Kraus brings together the strength of his own personal experience with the storytelling powers of an exceptional writer. Kraus will now on occupy the important place he deserves among writers of the twentieth century.--Antonio Iturbe, bestselling author of The Librarian of Auschwitz
