“Nina’s journey sucks the reader into the story from the first syllable.”
“It is a page-turner. It is remarkable that she can also write so well.
She writes in a very thrilling way. And simply. And very profoundly.”
“An absolutely spellbinding book … Few books have filled me with such
unconditional admiration as this one. I feel joyful and strengthened at
having met Nina, and I wish many, many more will do so.”
“I can not put it down, I want to know how it goes. This is a very
important book to read, so that we should never forget and so that
future generations should know and not be able to forget.”
Stories of intuition and resourcefulness. And of courage. .. About the
mechanisms of repression … And the craftiness of pure evil. …Nina and
Lena Einhorn’s laconic prose. Never raising their voices. And so you
hear it the better.
How many testimones like Lena Einhorn’s story about her mother Nina are needed to really convince the doubters?
“Rarely if ever – perhaps with the exception of Viktor Klemperers diaries
from the war years — have I read such a clear and vivid story of
surviving balancing between the haphazard choices that characterized
life in the ghetto, and keeping a panting life flame of hope alive in a
descending darkness. …It is the small details that give this story its
hypnotic force and I am forever grateful to Lena Einhorn that she
created this monument to her own mother.”
