What a remarkable story of the art of survival and its costs! Makana Eyre is the gifted narrator that his astounding and until now ironically unsung protagonist deserves.--Peter Hayes, author of Why? Explaining the Holocaust
Makana Eyre has written a book of searing effect, a wholly unsentimental testament to the power of music as a form of both principled resistance and historical memory. Sing, Memory is an unforgettable addition to Holocaust literature and scholarship.--Samuel G. Freedman, National Jewish Book Award-winning author of Jew vs. Jew: The Struggle for the Soul of American Jewry
Through meticulous research and vivid, passionate writing, Makana Eyre has done an extraordinary job of bringing Aleksander Kulisiewicz to life. Sing, Memory is a rich, dense, palpable account of a situation that otherwise would be beyond our imagining.--Nicholas Lemann, Pulitzer Moore Professor of Journalism and dean emeritus, Columbia Journalism School, and author of Transaction Man
Poignant.... Sparely written yet deeply moving, this is a powerful study of the healing power of art.-- "Publishers Weekly"
An uplifting story of music emanating from the depths of one of the 20th century's most horrific periods.... A significant new chapter of Holocaust history.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Riveting.... Masterfully written.--Beth Dwoskin "Jewish Book Council"
[Eyre] skilfully recounts the remarkable story of Kulisiewicz's survival.... He is a deft storyteller, with a limpid style, moving his characters to centre stage, aside, then back again. He weaves a compelling, well-informed narrative and illuminates the inner dynamics of the camp's power structure.... Sing, Memory is a moving story of courage and determination amid overwhelming loss, all the more powerful for its heartbreaking sense of what might have been.-- "The Economist"
