"A tense and spellbindingly gripping fantasy meditation on the horrors of the Holocaust." Kirkus Reviews

"David Michael Slater in his novel The Vanishing has dared to imagine the unimaginable. His story involves a tragic end of innocence and the courage, leavened by a dash of the miraculous, that allows a young girl to navigate history's greatest nightmare, and to awaken from it with her sense (and ours) of human possibility still intact. A remarkable book." Steve Stern, Author of The Frozen Rabbi and winner of the National Jewish Book Award
"The Vanishing is a tragic, yet beautiful story that deserves a place on the shelves among some of the greatest literature penned on the Holocaust." Mark A. Cooper, Author of the Edelweiss Pirates series
"The Vanishing must be the most vivid work of historical fiction about the Holocaust that I have ever read. There were times I broke into a sweat at the intensity of it. David Michael Slater has done an incredible job in conveying the tragedy of the Holocaust and the triumph of the human spirit." Doug Cervi, Executive Director of the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education
"The Vanishing took my breath away and held it until the very last page. Not many books on the Holocaust leave a reader crying and smiling, but this one absolutely did." Felice Cohen, Author of What Papa Told Me
